Merry Christmas, Cleveland


Traditions 'round these parts state that we leave a copy of "Fairytale of New York" for you to enjoy on this day. (Do read the backstory to the classic for the full effect.) If you haven't taken a spin through this week's issue yet and there's a break between Christmas presents and piles of ham, do so. There's plenty to love. Merry Christmas and happy holidays from us to you and yours, you scumbags.
