You heard me ... be a Scrooge!

Let’s put all of the mortar and bricks away for one day

By John Pawlak

Back in high school, I could barely put a verb and noun together without hurting myself.  That is, me not was two good very in the English.  Okay, maybe not quite that bad, but I did have trouble keeping my grades up in the low C’s.  (I hope my students aren’t reading this!)
This is my 100th column and it seems fitting that it address the best of things, and what better timing than the holiday season to inspire me?  The advent of a new year, new hope, new aspirations, and new challenges.  And so, I’d like to call upon everyone to be a Scrooge this year.
Yeah, you heard me right.  Be a Scrooge!
Dicken’s “Christmas Carol” portrays forgiveness and charity as uncommon human traits.  Scrooge was a living consolidation of the world as we see it today, full of greed, contempt, hate, and indifference to the needs of others.
