Will someone PLEASE give me a candy cane?
With all the hype re: the war on christmas, etc, etc, etc. and the general bah humbuggary that my own blog has been displaying, due to the transit strike (see, can't get through one post without it) I thought I'd share with you what passes for a Christmas Card here that the ole University:

AN OPEN LETTER TO THE
GRADUATE SCHOOL OF ARTS & SCIENCE COMMUNITY
From The Dean
Each culture celebrates the renewal of the seasons, the regeneration of the
cycles of time, and the presence of the sacred in its own ways. At OUR
University, a multi-cultural community of inquiry in the midst of a multi-
cultural metropolis, we are now in the middle of a rich, significant cluster
of relevant holidays, celebrations, and rituals. To all of you, my very best
wishes and hopes for your happiness.
AAHH, doesn't that just tug the ole heart strings?
The cycles of time? The presence of the sacred? Oh for God's sake.
