This is my Xmas list:
1. I want, for a period of one week, no shootings in Chicago, starting on Xmas Day. Just one week, that's all I ask for. If you feel the need to shoot someone, hold off until after New Years. I think our city could use seven straight days without richocheting bullets, blood on the street, and weeping family members.
2. Some less news about reality TV stars, please. Replace with happy news about cats helping babies go to sleep.
3. How about a holiday season when folks aren't stealing money from children. I'm not fond of Christmas, but I never force my attitude on kids, and definitely not by taking things away from them.
4. I'd like a war on the non-existent "War on Christmas." And Jon Stewart should be the general.
Am I asking too much? I don't think so. I'm not greedy.
I'd also settle for completing my "Robot Chicken" DVD collection. Hint, hint.
