A Brief Red Cup Rant, Baseball and a Date in History

I had considered writing about the stupid Starbucks boycott over the "War on Christmas" that some self-righteous, self proclaimed spokesperson for God has declared, but decided that it really isn't worth the time to try to make sense of his proclamation or anybody that takes him seriously. Neither is it worthwhile to defend Christianity from these idiots because those that really believe that he represents Christ are as unreasonable as he is.
If I believe that Jesus is being attacked and believe that he needs my help in defending him, I'll be there for him. That won't be at this time. I don't believe that Jesus is being assaulted by the red cup, that Christmas is under attack by Starbucks or that Christians should be offended by anyone other than the morons that claim to be offended by a simple red coffee cup.

In other news...

There are 146 days until the St Louis Cardinals' Opening Day baseball game. The Springfield Cardinals open 3 days later.

Tomorrow, November 10, is the fortieth anniversary of the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.
If you care to, you can listen to the Gordon Lightfoot song here.

"The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" is definitely not a party song.

I like the red cups. They're festive without being cloying.

Or as I read somewhere, snowflakes and reindeer aren't in the bible so chill out. Claudia suggested stickers for all religions at the counter so you can make your own personal religious cup.

Now Trump is suggesting that people boycott Starbuck's. Well, sit on it, Trumpster!
