The [Christmas] Papers

By Steve Rhodes


* Pay boxes freezing up again.

* Desert Island Jukebox Special on Sound Opinions this weekend.

UPDATES DEC. 25: Via Facebook.

Matt Farmer noticed that the woman who knocked down Pope Benedict XVI during Christmas Eve mass at St. Peter's did so only after the Pope walked untouched through the Chicago Bears secondary.


John Kuczaj tonight told all the young kids the story of Santa Claus battling Jesus to the death at the first Christmas.

The [Christmas] Papers
From the Beachwood holiday vault:

* Home for the Holidays: Our classic holiday series. Start from the bottom!

* 20 Carols. As fitting today as the year we wrote them.

* Barista! The Gift Card That Saved Christmas.

* Day in the Life: Christmas Radio.

* Santa's Got The Swine.

* This one goes out to all our Jewish friends out there.

* Heavy Metal Christmas.

* The 12 Days of Beachwood Christmas, including The 12 Days of Cubness.

* Settle in with our guide to the college bowl season and wager appropriately.

* Stocking stuffers for your favorite Bears. Substitute this year's recipients for last year's where warranted.

* Dear Macy's: The Walnut Room sucks!

* Dear Patti Blagojevich: Congratulations!

* The audio version of 'Twas The Night Before Fitzmas.

* Give the gift of the Beachwood!

* And of course, we wish you a holiday with minimal aggravation - and that goes for the atheists and agnostics out there too. Keep the faithlessness!
