An oldie but goodie from the Baltimore Or Less Christmas archives. Happy Holidays!
“During the holiday season of 1997, I had a sudden epiphany while listening to James Brown’s ‘Santa Claus Goes Straight To the Ghetto.’ White Christmas? Bah humbug! Suddenly I had visions dancing in my head, not of sugar plums but of billy clubs, Rodney King, rioting, looting, and arson. And of a guy dressed in red with a big sack…named Fat Albert! Like Dylan’s lyrics, not sure what it all means, but here it is for your bemusement.”
