Season’s greetings

by Neil Rickert

‘Tis the holiday season, so I will delay any future posts on perception or on how science works, until January.  I may still post on other current topics, such as the fiscal cliff.


  • Merry Christmas
  • Happy Holidays
  • Tasty Noodling
  • Enjoy the Mayan apocalypse
  • etc, etc, etc

I hope I haven’t left anybody out.  I’m not sure why some people take offense at neutral expressions such as “happy holidays”, but if they get their enjoyment out of indulging in a persecution complex, then best wishes to them.

It has long seemed to me that Christmas time is really an orgy of celebration for America’s true god, The Almighty Dollar.
