Merry Christmas millinerd readers

Thank you all for reading and commenting through yet another year (the fifth). Under the tree you'll find two gifts: First, to make up for a campaign season of MSNBC vs. FOX soundbites, I give you (in case you haven't yet discovered it). Intelligent liberals and intelligent conservatives (lots of them) in extended conversation. The posts may be long, but they're podcastable, and we don't have a dishwasher. The second gift is where one can find a whole lot of people to disagree with.

I'm almost as enthusiastic about bloggingheads as I was about recommending the teaching company, the post that got this whole thing started. Though back then we looked more like this (courtesy of the waybackmachine).

As to the photo, I took it a few steps outside my front door this weekend and thought it was kind of Christmassy. Those who went to Wheaton may catch the reference to a strange holiday e-card alums received that involved a stiltedly-animated cardinal flying around campus.
