Merry Christmas!

On behalf of everyone at Prairie Dog, I wish you all a terrific day filled with people and activities you love. Special extra-fond holiday wishes to our regular commentators: Barb, Brad, Chad, Ron, Dawn, Baby with a Blowtorch, Bronymous, Talbot Fresh, Jr., Cowardly Lion, MB, PC, Rusty, Riandras, Reader, Regina Mom, Anonymusses, Indy 500, anyone I forgot, and Brian and Seanbot (if you two are still out there). You guys are Heroes of Public Discourse and I hope Santa brings you extra-special presents this year.

And seeing as it’s the holiday home stretch, I thought I’d post it here….
