    I’d like to see a version where a guy is shown how EVERYBODY is better off if he had never been born. His parents, his wife, his friends, his town, even his dog is better off. And he decides to stick around after all.

    The J.A.M…..


    Just i case you’re still lost….
    in addition to what Briatollah said….

    George Bailey is the reluctant hero of “it’s a Wonderful Life”…
    a sweet 1946 Frank Capra movie still ubiquitous on US television during the Christmas season.


    On Christmas Eve, a novice guardian angel, Clarence, dissuades George from his intended suicide by showing him what his hometown would have been like without him…. and thereby earns his own wings.

    It took hundreds of hours before our daughter, the pilot, earned her wings.

    Ever notice in, “It’s a Wonderful Life” that old man Potter never gave back the money? The mark of a true Republican.

    Wings are easy. Spin yourself a cocoon, take a long nap, and when you awake….your a butterfly…. It seems to work for the caterpillar every time!

    I admit this one took me about a minute to get it. But then I laughed and appreciated it. I do like humor that requires you to think.

    Do yourself a big favor, Susan, and check out the video “The Year Without A Santa Claus” with both Heat Miser and Snow Miser doing their vaudeville routines. Trust me, you’ll love it!
