    ... Note that the piece starts off by saying (clearly sort of in jest) "I wonder if..."

    Not everyone can separate metaphor from taking things literally.  

    So if we can just put the needly nit picking aside for just a moment, do you see the larger point?

        especially for this time of year...No one seems to want to talk about anything but the Holidays and Christmas....seems like this country stops this time of year....and that would be great.. if Poverty Stopped, War stopped, Home foreclosures stopped,Planet Polution stopped and the Raping of the Earth stopped.....but the beat goes on....and everyone smiles sweetly "Merry Christmas!! ....while this Ship is sinking...Raise your Glass and sing "Auld Lang Syne"......or it is not too Late, as this diarist says and you can change your  Consciousness and "Be the Change you want to see in the World". Save ourselves, hop a Life boat and save as many others that want to be saved. Peace!

      Although not 100% accurate historically - the point I thought was well made.
