ALBINI IS FATHER CHRISTMAS
A lot of cynicism to come on this thread, I expect.
But this is sort of amazing:
Steve and Heather Albini can have me stop by their nearest Chicago Post Office and accept letters addressed to Santa Claus.
My legal name is Santa Claus, and I'm a full-time volunteer advocate for the 2 million children in the U.S. annually who are abused, neglected, exploited, abandoned, homeless, and institutionalized through no fault of their own. That's 1 out of 37 children in our great nation.
I'm also a Christian Monk, as St. Nicholas was many centuries ago, and believe that Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Christ, not the crass, commercial, secular spectacle it has become in many places, and that the greatest gift one can give is love, not presents.
You and your readers can visit TheSantaClausFoundation dot org and learn about the plight of these millions of vulnerable children in dire straits.
Blessings to all, Santa Claus
Love not presents? Superb.
gives out presents to poor kids at Christmas.
Albini is a total legend and, obviously, a very complex guy
with a brutal sense of humour and - lo! - a heart of gold.
during their Q&A at ten years of atp, someone ask 'Steve, are you Santa Claus?'
