    Re: Charles Payne’s Christmas miracle
    Love these kind of stories especially when they are so personally relatable.

    On Christmas Day 2003 my mom was rushed to ICU with heart problems as an 86 year-old patient. I still remember my dad (who was not religious) telling the six or seven of us who were there that if we believed in the power of prayer, now was the time. It must have worked because she lived a reasonably healthy life for eight more years until she died in her sleep at 94 in 2011. Yay prayer!

    Hopefully Charles Payne’s mother will be just as fortunate and that she has that steak dinner she craves very soon.

    The afternoon after Christmas and the blog is a dud.
    One commenter posting.
    At least it’s not Spud.

      He posted more here yesterday than there were total posts on his blog in nearly the past month.

        This is a fun place to be. Hope he comes back.

          As long as he leaves his friends at home.

            Well played Larry.

            One of my comedic heroes.

          • Humor is subjective, but for me that exchange is the funniest moment in all the Pink Panther movies.

            Touché.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            My favorite line goes back to the first Pink Panther movie’s costume ball scene. A woman dressed as Cleopatra saying to Closeau, “Get your filthy hands off of my asp.”

    I don’t watch much on Sundays lately, but always Sharyl Attkisson’s FULL MEASURE. With the major news outlets doing so little investigative reporting, I’m a regular customer for hers..Enjoy the takes on media as well. Today’s guest, Howard Kurtz.
