Occupy Wall Street Lego Set

Santa cutie, and fill my stocking with a duplex,
And checks.

Sign your 'X' on the line,

Santa cutie, and hurry down the chimney tonight

What to buy the kids for Christmas, as a politically-aware caretaker?

How about Occupy Wall Street -- The Lego Set? (an idea from Slate). You control both the protest and the police response, but "only use tear gas under adult supervision". Someone's gotta be the adult.


It's not all skittles and beer, y'know?

G.D.,

How could I have missed the obvious? You have a gift ...

Stop-action animation always fascinated and frightened me. Gumby frightened me. Which brings to mind Disney's "The Sorcerer's Apprentice", which always terrified me.

Unnatural things that most kids liked, like clowns, frightened me. Hints of tendencies to come, namely, I do not like masks.

(Wow -- that's a lot out of marching toy soldiers.)

hiding is a survival technique. mask is a tool. ironically, a mask often conceals the apparent but reveals the a deeper soul.
