Merry Christmas From The Family

I agree with Fake Steve, this is still the finest Christmas song ever: "Merry Christmas from the Family" by Robert Earl Keen.

Fake Steve's second paragraph, by the way, refers to his recent posts, in which he seemed to discuss, semi-seriously and out of FSJ character, the prospect that Apple was going to pay him off to shut down (as may have happened to the Think Secret guy). At first I wondered if it was true, but realized it was just a masterful way to hype up his readership in order to fire this brilliant and dead-on missive across Apple's bow.

Rove Resigns To Spend More Time In Shadows
Rove, who planned to return at the stroke of midnight Aug. 31 to the mysterious underworld from which he emerged two decades ago to do the bidding of masters unknown, claimed he never felt comfortable operating within the visible light spectrum.

. . .

"I am excited to give this new chapter of my life the shadowy obfuscation it deserves," Rove said. "There are some matters that should just be kept private, far from the prying gaze of mortal eyes and wicked Sun."
