Startling Admission: Follow-up

As always, Rude Cactus (the site...I haven't resorted to referring to myself in the third person) leading while others follow. On the way home from work today, I caught a story on NPR that I thought I should share. For another perspective on the whole Charlie Brown Controversy, I give you commentator John Moe's thoughts.

I just heard that story as I was driving home from work and thought of you immediately! I think Mr. Moe realized the story didn't make a whole lot of sense, either, but with a good fuzzy feeling overall...

And I haven't seen the Charlie Brown Christmas special in so long that I really can't remember much about it!

Samantha...you're right. The 'fuzzy' feeling. That's what I like. I think that I get that from the music though, and not the story. I've seen the movie on tv every year (I'm 38), sometimes mowing down my brother and sister to get to the tv (before vcr's allowed us the 'taping' prospect) and I'm sure that I never really GOT the whole story. It was better that way, I think.

Personally, I prefer "The Year Without A Santa Claus"...LOVED Freeze Miser/Heat Miser thing!

Who knew such an innocent little cartoon could incite such controversy! I had never even considered the message Shultz was putting out there. And you! What a (what's the word I'm looking for? Not trendsetter, innovator... Crap, can't find the word.) _________ you are. Please fill in the blank. You know what you are! (A good man???)

Man - it's the music isn't it? Just listening to the end made me smile so much. Gotta go get my Peanuts/Vince Guaraldi CDs out.
