A Media Is You, Lynn.......

As we all know, there are a lot of people who complain bitterly about Lynn's blithely forcing them to confront the question of the reality of Santa Claus before they're ready to have that little chat with their kids. It saddens me to see such heartfelt letters of disapproval knowing that they'll be shrugged off without a thought.

This is because I know something that they do not: Lynn isn't overburdened with regret about the things that she does. The same woman who pleads with us to love Anthony cheerfully informs her fans that if a child is old enough to read her strip, he or she is old enough to have figured out the truth; if that isn't the case, she cannot and will not be held accountable for the consequences.

This sort of smug stupidity takes a darkly comic turn when she jabs a finger in the air and blames the media for teaching her children to curse and destroying their respect for her. First off, she is the media to those who want to keep Santa in Christmas; second, like Santa, the source of cursing and disrespect is a lot closer than she thinks it is. Like most children, I should think that they picked up the choicer expressions from unaware parents and, well, it's sort of obvious that her antics and the fact that she spent next to no time raising them might explain why she didn't get the obedience she wanted.
