    Great column, Martha! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you, John and Arthur(I know Merry Christmas isn't pc but I don't care – I already wished you Happy Channukah, so I feel I'm entitled. In fact, I think the world would be a better place if we gave everyone best wishes on whatever holiday they celebrate)
