    Bitter Lawyer, I think that with all of the bad things going down, and the head cases going around shooting people (like what just went on at the Connecticut school yesterday), I recommend we get rid of this picture and substitute something more season-friendly, like a fat Santa Claus chasing his sled with his pants around his ankles. Ptooey!
