Watched (or listened to) Charles Dickens's "A Christmas Carol" with everyone from Patrick Stewart to Jonathan Winter in the role of Ebenezer Scrooge. Having followed politics the past year, the resonances and parallels to current times were undeniable. I've come to the conclusion that we have way too many people playing that Scrooge role in real life.

Excellent quote, Mandy.

My first encounter with "A Christmas Carol" was in the fourth grade, where we played the parts of the story as a teaching in morals.  I have also seen a lot of Scrooges in my life.  I am reminded of a quote from the Gospel of Mark that states: "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?'
