How the HUD Stole Christmas
The ongoing Kulturkampf against Christmas has now extended to any direct mention of it at all, even when other “holidays” are ritually specified. In this leaked internal memo from Housing and Urban Development Secretary Andrew Cuomo, the “Three Kings” event on the 4th floor is the Latin celebration of Epiphany.
