The rest of the show will be devoted to "Reason's Greetings," a recap of FFRF's whirlwind actions this past week putting up equal time displays to counter nativity scenes on government property. Bonus song: Dan Barker's expurgated-for-radio version of South Park's "Merry Fricken Christmas."

Wishing all listeners a very merry Winter Solstice weekend!
