A Festivus for the Rest of Us: The Airing of Grievances

For all the Seinfeld aficionados who read this blog, the title of this post should require little explanation.

For all you other people, today marks the first (and hopefully, only) day of Festivus.

Festivus, according to Wikipedia, is the creation of writer Dan O'Keefe and was introduced to the public by his son Daniel as part of a storyline for the NBC TV series Seinfeld.

Festivus is a secular holiday celebrated on December 23 as "another way" to celebrate the holiday season without participating in its pressures and commercialism.

Festivus begins with the airing of grievances and ends with the feats of strength.

Today, in keeping with this time-honored winter holiday tradition, here's an opportunity for the readers of Georgia Politics Unfiltered to air their grievances against any of the stories I've posted online or any of the opinions I've expressed throughout the year.

For this one day, I've turned on anonymous commenting, so have at it. To paraphrase Republican gubernatorial candidate Karen Handel, I put my big boy pants on early this morning. I'm tough. I can take it.
