speaking of santa.. I don't know if you have kids, but if you did what
would you tell your kids. (I'm speaking mainly to David, because I'm
interested in how this fits with his rational thought system) is this a
hypocrisy? I don't have kids yet, but I've often wondered what to tell
them. I can't remember if my parents told me the truth, but it seems like
I've always known. Is it a white lie, to make them happier, or is it
merely a prank?
