The [Christmas Day 2014] Papers

The Beachwood elves threw together this abbreviated holiday column.

* 15% - 20% Of Christmas Gifts Are Crap.

* The Amazon Grinch And Germany's Unhappy Elves.

* Rock 'N' Roll History From Chicago Native's Caribou Ranch Up For Auction.

* Inside The Indiana Megadairy Making Coca-Cola's New Milk.

"That dairy, called Fair Oaks Farms, doubles as America's one and only dairy theme park, a bit of Americana that interrupts a monotonous stretch of Interstate 65 between Chicago and Indianapolis."

* Oldest Man In America Dies At 110 In Rockford.

* Smart Bar To Undergo Renovations In January.

* The Former CIA Agent Who Prompted The Torture Report Speaks From Prison.

"Obama's intelligence policy is essentially an extension of the Bush administration, but bloodier."

This is still something liberals have not come to grips with, despite mounds of facts. It's satisfying to focus anger on Dick Cheney - and certainly correct - but the evidence could hardly be stronger that the Obama administration is far more guilty of war crimes, secret government and modes of tyranny (including an all-out offensive on journalists and whistleblowers) than Cheney-Bush. Liberals have never been able to get their heads around who Obama really is; it's too counter to their media-massaged perception and their deeply baked-in beliefs and self-view of sophisticates battling the ignorance of rednecks and Palinites. It's necessarily self-delusional, lest their worldview be shaken to the core. It's almost like too devastating a psychological breakdown would occur should they acknowledge their own complicity in everything they profess to be against.

* Roger Waters: A Gitmo Story.

* Doonesbury: Mr. Tobacco & Mr. Alcohol.

* In Brooklyn, A Pattern Of Guns That Seem To Have Been Planted On Black Men.

* State Aid To Prop Up Nukes? Exelon Says No - In Ohio.
