  1. To our readers: my best wishes for a merry and meaningful holiday season. You are what makes J$P a success. If in the past year I’ve offended with excess sarcasm or snark it was a slip of the tongue, not of the heart. I appreciate your friendship and support more than I can ever say. Looking forward to 2018.

  2. I couldn’t pick any of you out in a police lineup, but I am so fond of each and every person here.

    Merry Christmas, everyone!

  3. Christmas in Washington is my own upload, salvaged from a 28-year-old Betamax tape played on an ancient Sony that gave up the ghost shortly thereafter. Preserved it just in time.
