Special Holiday Double Issue!

This issue of CM would be fatter than usual if you bothered to print it all out. But even on the screen you might notice that the pixels seem unusually . . . thick.

That's because we're publishing a special seasonal double issue. The next one will go out on January 5th. It's not like you were going to be spending much time on the Internet over the holidays anyway, right? I mean, I do this for a living, but I hope not.

And unlike Halloween, I have nothing grumpy to say in this editorial about Christmas. I watched the Grinch last night and got all choked up. Today I fly to Montreal to visit family, where we'll watch the Alistair Sim version of A Christmas Carol (non-colourized) and get all choked up. Then we'll eat until we also become unusually . . . thick.

I hope you all have equally happy holidays.

So Merry Christmas from me and Peter, and everybody else at CM. See you in the new year!
