This is Didi Snavely asking you, 'Do you know how dangerous it could be during this day and age to ride unarmed in a one-horse open sleigh?' Well, lay those fears to rest, 'cause Didi's is stocked to the ceiling this Christmas with weaponry for the home, the car, and the workplace. God forbid during this joyous season that anyone listening should become the victim of a Christmas theft. But wouldn't you rather shoot someone than watch them run off with your new toaster? I know I would. So whether it's a stun gun, judo clubs, or just a simple old-fashioned switchblade, when you come to Didi's you'll have a holly-jolly Christmas and the criminal will have a silent night.
Ah, I was just going to say that Ma means that we're all kowtowing to Madison Avenue and the Almighty Cash Register. Yeah. She means that Christmas has been exploited by Big Business. It's a victim of Crass Commercialism. –Oh, my. Did I mean all that?
Good evening. Today, our fellow citizens, our way of life, our very freedom came under attack in a series of deliberate and deadly terrorist acts. The victims were in airplanes or in their offices, secretaries, businessmen and women, military and Federal workers, moms and dads, friends and neighbors. Thousands of lives were suddenly ended by evil, despicable acts of terror. The pictures of airplanes flying into buildings, fires burning, hues-huge structures collapsing, have filled us with disbelief, terrible sadness, and a quiet, unyielding anger. These acts of mass murder were intended to frighten our nation into chaos and retreat, but they have failed. Our country is strong. A great people has [sic] been moved to defend a great nation. Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America.
