From Public Secrets Global HQ, wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and many happy surprises under your tree:
UPDATE: Here’s a very interesting article by historian John Steele Gordon on the origins and history of Christmas, including the story of how it came to fall on the end of the Roman holiday of Saturnalia. Smart man, that Pope Liberius: A Brief History of Christmas. (Hint: search the author and title in Google to get past the subscriber wall.)

Had an old friend visiting yesterday, and then today was filled with a bunch of chores and… naps. So, not much to post about, not even the controversy over Dr. Ben Carson saying that Islam is incompatible with the Constitution. (I did reply to Rick Moran’s excoriation of Carson, if you’re interested.) For what it’s worth, I don’t find Carson’s statement about Islam and the Constitution at all controversial.
So, anyway, it’s a weekend blog holiday. Enjoy what’s left of it. Maybe even take a nap or two.

It was a heckuva party last night, wasn’t it?
Happy New Year, folks. May 2015 bring you all you could desire.
