If the wind tells you anything tonight it would probably be better if you didn’t repeat it to any kings or agents thereof. – “A Song for the Season”
December is, of course, chock full of holidays and special observances. Besides St. Nicholas’ Day, Yule, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Eve, there’s also December 17th and, in this particular December, Friday the Thirteenth, the 80th anniversary of the end of Prohibition (“Ignoble Experiment“), and an extra Christmas piece, “A Song for the Season“. The fictional interlude, “The Reason for the Season“, was also holiday themed, and the subject of the harlotography was “Klondike Kate“, whose stomping ground was fairly close to the North Pole. The month’s guest columnist was Jasper Gregory and its Q&A columns were “Familiarity Does Its Thing“, “Inexperience” and “Indecent Exposure“, but the only Cliterati reprint was “Catastrophic Consequences“. After all that, the only remaining columns to mention are “Unbound” (announcing my Cato Unbound online debate), “The Spiral of Absurdity” (demolishing an especially-ridiculous “sex trafficking” claim), “On the Road Again” (mentioning a trip to New Orleans), and “More Stand-Up Guys” (recognizing men who stand up for sex workers’ rights).
