Response to Original message
23. Lots of good suggestions - the one I went with
was in response to other kids' cynical delight - "If you believe in Santa, then for you he's real. If that mean kid Dubya says there isn't a Santa, then for him there isn't." I like that approach to Hell, too. (Ooops, I used that word again. DOn't delete me. I mean a location, okay?)
