What I want for Christmas (if I could) . . .

I would have all the cardinals, archbishops, bishops,
priests and clergymen admit that they know nothing about theology,

nothing about hell or heaven, nothing about the destiny of the
human race, nothing about devils or ghosts, gods or angels. I would
have them tell all their “flocks” to think for themselves.

I would like to see all the politicians changed to statesmen,
– to men who long to serve their country, — to men
who care more for public good than private gain — 

men who long to be of use.

I would like to prohibit slander and misrepresentation, 
and to let the private affairs of the people alone.

I would like to see the whole world free — free from superstition.  

This would do for this Christmas. 
The next Christmas, I may want more.

I drink to that

Is it too early for a Negroni?  No, I rather thought not.

The Ms Edna Negroni
15ml Campari
15ml Martini Rosso
15ml Gordon's Gin

Shove in a slice of orange.  Drink. Feel better.
