"He sees you when you're sleeping, he knows what calls you make!" Who does old St. Nick work for this year?
Transportation and warehouse companies have added jobs, factory employees exceeded 12 million people for the first time in four years, the elderly are seeking work, pay remains stagnant at the bottom, and the long-term unemployed are still screwed.
During the December holidays I feel the urge to watch old black and white movies, preferably those starring Jimmy Stewart. This year, "It's a Wonderful Life" is too painful, a reminder of what we used to be but aren't anymore.
Every year about now I watch “It’s a Wonderful Life” again to remind myself what Frank Capra understood about America -- its essential decency and common sense.
