Not that I’ve in the slightest way put behind me the Sandy Hook tragedy, of course: who could—ever, which appears to be the singular blessing that might grow out of this most unholy of events. As far as I know the N.R.A. is still planning to issue its Big Statement on the Newtown massacre this Friday; like all of you, I’ll be paying close attention to that statement.
In the meantime (assuming you haven’t yet seen it—but even then!) enjoy this puppety Christmasy awesomenicity. I hadn’t seen it, and so am grateful to Al Pinto, from Hutton, Havering, United Kingdom, for pointing me toward it.
It’s still Christmas.
God damn it all (he said, with tears in his eyes) it’s still Christmas.
