Episode 20171225 - The Symbol and the Saint by Eugene Field



"The Symbol and the Saint," from "Christmas Tales and Christmas Verse," by Eugene Field, published in 1912.

A very pretty story I found, and recorded on this date back in 2008, as Hiber-Nation 45.  Still makes a good audio Christmas card, not perfect, but heartfelt.

Best wishes for a joyous holiday season, whatever holiday you celebrate!  And here's to better times in the coming year.

Show Theme "Hot Swing" and other music from Kevin MacLeod of Incompetech.com.

Why America isn't the greatest country in the world anymore.

This didn't quite bring me to tears, but I sure felt like it.  It's from an Aaron Sorkin series called "Newsroom."  It starts slow, and gets rough to listen to in the middle, but sadly hopeful at the end.  Or that's what I heard, anyway.



It ends on a sad note.  But, to quote from another Aaron Sorkin show, we need to write "the next ten words."
