Ok, I'm just going to go ahead and nip something in the bud right now concerning our family Christmas card:
No, we didn't have those pictures taken in Kabul, Afghanistan. Yes, I agree the telephone lines and concrete utility shed make for a depressing backdrop. Yes, Albuquerque has much, much prettier places than that. Yes, we were told we were being taken to a pretty location for our picture and were pretty surprised when we got there. Yes, I'm taking all of you off our card list for next year, because even if you didn't say anything I know you judged us in your heart.
The truth is, we are doing a different political theme every year, and last years theme was "Stills from a war-torn Iraq." Stay tuned for next year's "North Korean Yuletide."
