A Holiday Greeting

To All My Democrat Friends:

Please accept with no obligation, implied or explicit, my
best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially
responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral
celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within
the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion
of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with
respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions
of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular
traditions at all. I also wish you a fiscally successful,
personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated
recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar
year 2008, but not without due respect for the calendars of
choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have
helped make America great. Not to imply that America is
necessarily greater than any other country nor the only
America in the Western Hemisphere. Also,this wish is made
without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability,
religious faith or sexual preference of the wishee.

To My Republican Friends:

Merry Christmas and a H a p p y N e w Y e a r !
