I like Lileks

I love James Lileks's way with words. On the Christmas singing of three and four year olds:

...they filed into the great vaulted sanctuary singing "Jesus Loves Me" in that classic toneless toddler caterwaul that nevertheless finds a melody somewhere, and holds it aloft like the body of some strange & lovely creature that washed up on the village's shore.
