Lying about Our Towns

Lying About Our Towns

Pull Quote: ""You hear rap music all the time and they want to do away with Christmas songs?"

Right. Sell me another one. Tell us about all the concerts the school has put on this year that featured music by Eminem or Grandmaster Flash or Run-DMC or NWA or Jay-Z or.... The Times certainly didn't--because they can't.

Meanwhile, as of Thanksgiving Day, we're stuck with the station that used to play occasional rap song--but mostly "classic" rock--having become "the Best Mix of Holiday Hits 24 hours a Day." And I have yet to hear "Dreidel, Dreidel, Dreidel"--let alone "Cuando El Rey Nimrod" or "Ocho Candelikas"--in the mix of Bruce Springsteen's "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" and Bob Seger's "The Little Drummer Boy" (neither of which, I note irrelevantly, qualifies as even the best Xmas song recorded by that artist).
