    Nice one GODfrey....like that Nancy? You just got schooled by GOD, except in this case, you didn't need to spell incorrectly to get yourself there.

    Although I must admit, it's not unusual to see an uneducated christian...not unusual at all.

    Go Festivus!!!!
    Screw Christmas unless it's X-mas!!!

      to a class of Columbia University grad students that there are jobs being creeatd in the near future that none of us in this room can fathom and there will be jobs we thought we could depend on that will be lost. So get use to it . So when the medical field and insurance business decrease to almost nothing new businesses will arise to replace them. Like maybe aquaculture for fresh fruits and veggies grown in any climate year round on your local street corner or health practicioners that actually teach how to treat the cause of pain and bad health. Anyway you get my point, i for one am not worried about change because it brings with it a fresh breath of hope and in this case happiness for millions of people. Keep up the great articles and research.Your friend from the Westerly Sea SideDan Liese

      I blame the military for not getnitg out the good info. While it is true that most of the good things from Iraq don't come out, and the bad ones do, it's also true that journalist will go through great lenghts to get their story. To a journalist, a story is like a mission to a soldier-they will accomplish it regardless of what they have to do. This means that if a journalist can't talk to the soldiers, he will try to contact the family. If he can't talk with the family of the soldiers, he will contact the soldiers' friends. Eventually, he will write the story based on what he has, even if it does not show the whole picture. Did you know that there are journalists desperate to get the good news out, and they volunteer to be embeded with military units, but they're treated like crap and laundried through a bureaucracy to the point that most of them just give up? At one point, Bremer had up to 250 requests from different journalits who wanted to get the good news out to be embedded with military units! When the military treats the media with contempt, the military won't be chummy with the media. Broadcasting this video was a rather foolish thing to do, but I'm talking about the big picture here.One last thing-this Duncan Hunter guy knows next to nothing about embeds. An embed is one of the best things for the military. Embedded reporters get a first-hand feel of the fatique, danger, and deprivations soldiers go through, and this instills a respect for the soldiers that can't be matched by talking heads who sit on their asses and opine. Let's hope cooler heads prevail, and Mr. Hunter doesn't get his way.

    Nancy is correct: according to the CNN Standerd Dictionary: "The werd holyday is a werd that means a day awf. Like Crismas."

    Use of the CNN Standerd Dictionary is not confined to headline writers and commentators named Nancy, by the way. It is in wide use throughout the Internet. Matt Drudge swears by it.

    I guess getting on a religion editor's case for an inability to spell is like yelling at my dog for not knowing calculus. Sorry.

    as an agnostic festivas xmas and all other HOLYday's do not have to have any religious meaning. I love Santa,reindeer,trees,lights decorations, Carols gift exchanging,family friends and of course great food and beer!! May everyone forget religious brainwashing divisions and have a very Merry Christmas!!!!

    A secular HOLYday? Isn't that a contradiction in terms?
