Re: Your "I just don't get it" list
Hollywood action movies. Same old formula.
Paris Hilton. I feel the same about Jessica Simpson.
RealityTV. Never "got it" enough to give it a try. I want escape in my TV.
Light beer. A few less calories and a lot less taste.
The need to spend the exact same $ on everyone of the same status on your Xmas buying list.
The fear some liberals have of letting Christmas be a religious holiday. My faith is very weak, if it even exists, but it is a religious holiday, you know!
I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.
