PERSPECTIVE on Xmas replacing CHRISTmas


Writing in the Dec. 22 Arizona Republic, Valley 101 columnist Clay Thompson had this to say to a reader who wanted to know "when they took Christ out of Christmas and made it Xmas":

"If you are someone who truly believes Dec. 25 is the birthday of Christ ... then how can anybody else take the 'Christ' out of it for you?"

Good advice for all of us on so many fronts: we need to spend less time worrying about what others think or do and more minding our own business.

And remember, you can read Clay Thompson daily when you subscribe to the Republic.  You'll also get the big Sunday paper, hundreds of dollars in coupons, a TV guide, Bashas' and Safeway sale inserts twice a week, complete Suns, D-Backs and Cards coverage, and so much more.  It's far and away the best value for your newspaper dollar.
