Okay, so you got gypped last week with no song of the week since I haven’t been posting later, so in order to catch up, here it is, almost a week late (that’s right, that means you get another one tomorrow, too). It’s hard to find music videos of Christmas songs here in this festive time of the year, so you’re gonna end up getting a double whammy. Here’s Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s song “Wizards In Winter” along with a Christmas light display that was timed to the music by computer. I’m going to see them in concert in a couple weeks, too. I wish I had the time, money, and skill to do this. One day I hope to do something even half this cool at my own house.

So much truth it hurts. Not to mention it’s a rock in the rising stream that is inflation. Hell, even the Dollar Tree is $1.25 now. But the old standby Costco hot dog? Forever a buck fifty and I’m here for it.
While I realize this email was sent in error, it’s a fairly accurate look at the number of daily local stories that will be left if @LeeEntNews keeps laying off local journalists at the @RTDNEWS. It’s sad and pathetic.
I’m not saying I’m necessarily an Elon Musk fan, but could he do any worse as owner? It’s a social behemoth past its prime thanks to self-inflicted wounds but still enjoys an outsized social cachet since tweets are often referenced in the media–and it’s the de-facto town square.
