The Daily Miracle

My favorite Christmas gift - besides God being born into the world as man - was being home with my family. My big brother got to come in from Texas and my maternal grandmother is now living with my parents, plus an uncle and a couple of cousins were there, so it was great.

But besides that, the favorite material thing was from my parents, and I think illustrates the humor and resolve with which people in New Orleans and along the Gulf have responded to Katrina. It's a T-shirt printed by the New Orleans' paper, the Times-Picayune, that reads: "The Times-Picayune: We Publish Come Hell and High Water".
