Gah. Let's all agree not to mention the Grinch, and nobody gets hurt.<P>The Hollywood machine takes something really good (the Grinch), chews it up, regurgitates some PC crap, and suddenly everybody in the entire industrialized world is Grinch this and Grinch that. My God, the <B>Post Office</B> is shilling for Hollywood! The Post Office?!? Now granted, Ilya and Case and our other, ahem, Stars-and-Stripes-challenged friends may not have been into a US Post Office in recent months, but imagine, if you will, that their normal explanatory posters have been replaced by Grinch-themed posters. The first one kind of rhymes, kind of scans, it's a nod to Dr. Seuss. But then obviously the marketroids found they couldn't sustain the effort, because they just kind of give up halfway through the second poster.<P>But ... let's back up here. The USPS is still officially a part of the government, not a private commercial entity, right? So in effect, we have the government participating in a merchandising deal. (Let's ignore for the moment that my bank is <I>also</I> shilling for the Grinch.) Now ... correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't that just sound like, oh, bad 70's science fiction? The government advertising for Hollywood entertainment moguls?<P>This country is so damned bizarre at times.<P>Oh. Sorry, we were talking about Sinfest, weren't we? Damn you, Ilya, you distracted me.<P>------------------
