Cheers & Jeers

CHEERS to Albany County (NY) Justice Joseph Teresi who ruled that New York state's defintion of marriage - exclusively between a man and a woman - is, in fact, constitutional. 13 same-sex couples sued claiming the state violated their rights to free speech, equal protection, and due process. Imagine that - common sense in a "blue" state!

JEERS to the Plano (TX) school district for banning the "Christmas colors" of red and green at what they call "winter break parties." Are they dreaming of a white Christmas? Maybe a blue Christmas? What they ought to ban is the wearing of shorts or midriff-baring tops duirng the winter months.

CHEERS to McDonald's for fighting back against Toby Cosgrove, the new head of the Cleveland Clinic. Food fascist Cosgrove wanted the fast-food restaurant removed from the lobby of the clinic. Pizza Hut reportedly went softly into the night - but not the golden arches! By the way, they serve 12,000 doctors, nurses, janitors, secretaries, patients, and visitors at that location every week. Wonder what Toby has for lunch?

CHEERS to the Baby born in Bethlehem just over 2,000 years ago, and JEERS to all the fussbudgets who do whatever they can to stop those of us who celebrate His birth. Party-poopers!
