A Sign Of A Different Sort

[Posted by reader_iam]

We must be approaching Christmas the Hholidays. I just saw the first TV ad hawking a Frank Sinatra collection! (And I wasn't even watching a PBS fund drive: After all, it's not high season yet.) Oooh, baby: "That sly come-hither stare" is beckoning us toward year's end--and the start of yet another annum, in time's march, as ever it has been, ad nauseum, and say amen, somebody.

Tradition sure ain't what it used to be, but then: We're all the better for that.


(For the record, I have quite the Sinatra collection, having been born and bred a fan.)
