>Or are they using all their decorations as a substitute for a security light? I mean, walk through their yard and you�re gonna get SEEN.Most disturbing are the actual yard ornaments, which include lighted reindeer whose necks are surely in need of chiropractic care from all these months of lowering and raising, lowering and raising. They�re like those freaky mall elves whose entire lives are spent frozen in place except for one arm swinging up and down. What un-examined lives those ornaments lead.I once heard that Freud believed procrastination was nothing but repressed anger and resentment, that people put things off because they are angry they had to do them in the first place. Which makes a whole lot of sense.But if my neighbors are really pissed off at their reindeer, why did they put them up in the first place? Hmmm? Not that they don�t have every right to leave up their garish bulbs, but still. Shivering people in the trailer park down the road could use some of that electricity. Aww, aren�t I just a lil� ol� Robin Hood.--ONE FOR THE ROADTornado Ali is ALL of these. Which ones are you? --
