The paper holds their folded faces to the floor

We will be LIVE tomorrow from 11am-1pm looking back on the year in lunacy. Listen to us LIVE locally on AM1280 or LIVE on the internet stream.

A couple of years ago, I noted with some disdain that some transplanted cheeseheads allowed their son to wear a Packers jersey to Christmas Mass. This year's Mass was green and gold free as far as I could see, but there was another case on inappropriate clothing selection.

A cherub-faced youth of around twelve was sporting a t-shirt. Since it was all of eight degrees that evening it seemed like a poor choice from a weather standpoint. And it was not just any plain Jane t-shirt. Its front advertised one of the best selling rock albums of all time: Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon. There are many venues where such a shirt would be perfectly in place. Church during Christmas Eve Mass is not one of them. You're supposed to be their parents not their friends people.
