Christmas Torts

This time of year, most of us have Christmas cheer, but a few of us experience Christmas torts.  Jonathan Turley has a funny article on Christmas torts here.

"Tis the season for Christmas torts and it is not just stockings hung from the chimney with care. Fathers are dangling from rooftops ensnared in lights while trees spontaneously combust to illuminate the coming of the new year. Christmas is proof that God first created man and then created counsel. Because after all, what holiday begins with a curiously dressed overweight man squeezing himself down your chimney? Even if he does not have a heart attack in your flue, his entry would satisfy the conditions of the Castle Doctrine in a majority states to repel him with lethal force."
