Well, the spotlight on the war on political correctness seems to have fallen on 'holiday greetings' at this time of the year.
I have the feeling that if we could harness the energy people waste on performing various grammatical contortions in order to send emotionally isotonic sentiments to one another, the Northeast wouldn't have to broker deals with Venezuela for heating oil, All of Montana could leave their windows and doors open in an attempt to warm up the state, and I wouldn't have to listen to the same old armchair diplomatic canned discussion about what's the best way to wish someone well during the end of the year.
I wish I could dissect all the reasons why people do this, but the simple answer is that there's rarely a simple answer for why so many disparate people perform the same contrived act of empty well-wishing.
