Thread Name: Pagan thoughts on 'Santa Claus'
Subject: RE: Pagan thoughts on 'Santa Claus'
No, I'm not frustrated, it just appeals to my twisted sense of humour... :-)

Carl Hiassen writes what I think would be defined as "satirical crime novels". They ruthlessly lampoon the more corrupt social and political aspects and the seamy lowlife characters of the state of Florida in its present hideous state of devolution.

Read 'em for a good laugh! Drive-by shootings of Santa Clauses in Florida would be specially funny, because it doesn't even snow there. Most of the "Santa" characters would themselves be so basically rotten at heart that you wouldn't mind reading about them getting shot. You would begin to think of the killer as a public benefactor. The "Santas" would probably be using their official role as a cover to deal dope, falsify election results, trade in white (and other brands of) slavery, that sort of thing...
