I said something about sending an awful message and it was sharp and witty and very sad. I can't remember now what I said. The message they are sending to young people is Santa is an alcoholic.
I really don't think people are comfortable in their skin. They don't like to talk to each other hence loud blaring music and they needs booze and drugs to spend time with each other because they do not like themselves let alone anyone else. This is not the Christmas Spirit although at first glance it appears to be -- it is the opposite -- it represents the worst in consumerism but at least it is making bar owners rich and Mike Bloomberg and gang have to approve of that!
