Merry Christmas, Everyone!

I'd like to wish all my family, friends, and readers the merriest of Christmases. Of course, I would also like to wish a very merry Christmas to the ACLU!

I hope that all of you who are reading this are having a restful and safe holiday, full of cheer. I hope you have your family close to you, whether it be physically or in your heart, as is my case. Wherever you are, whoever you are, I hope that when you lay down to sleep tonight, it's with a smile on your face. In the words of Tiny Tim, "God bless us, every one!"

Merry Christmas to you!

"Passage—immediate passage! the blood burns in my veins! Away, O soul! hoist instantly the anchor!
Cut the hawsers—haul out—shake out every sail!
Have we not stood here like trees in the ground long enough?
Have we not grovell’d here long enough, eating and drinking like mere brutes?
Have we not darken’d and dazed ourselves with books long enough?

Sail forth! steer for the deep waters only!
Reckless, O soul, exploring, I with thee, and thou with me;
For we are bound where mariner has not yet dared to go, And we will risk the ship, ourselves and all.

O my brave soul!
O farther, farther sail!
O daring joy, but safe! Are they not all the seas of God?
O farther, farther, farther sail!"

~Walt Whitman, "Passage to India"
