It's the most wonderful time of the year. And a large part of what makes it so goldarn fabulous is the festive array of idiosyncratic traditions each family imprints on their holiday gene map like a candy cane tattoo on the soft flesh behind your knee.

If the disappointment of everyone expecting fireworks at the first Democratic debate exhibited itself as perspiration, we could declare the California drought over. A few soggy matches might have been lit but that was it. Heavy on the smoke: non-existent on the flame.

Gilead Sciences is publicly traded, but Turing Pharmaceuticals has no stockholders to report to. Just Shkreli, the former hedge fund manager. A group known for having the same conscience as starving hyenas in heat. These guys make a safari of lion-killing dentists look cuddlesome.

September is a grand month for traditions. Hopefully they did find some time to relax, because in even numbered years, the post Labor Day period marks the bare knuckles return of the American political process playoffs; with elections less than two months away, looming like a gorilla on steroids in the pantry.

The Two Tooth Advantage

The plume of a great doom now looms. Talking about that wonderfully hideous first Monday in September -- Labor Day. Yeah, sure, it's a big time, bona fide holiday, but being the last warm wet splash of summer -- so bittersweet. Like the final free Continental breakfast buffet before checking out of a five-star hotel.

How about individuals? Doesn't the same logic mandate that anybody named Manson or Hitler alter their name so as not to remind victims' relatives of their grisly crimes? Adolf? Charlie? What about Bush? Clinton? Kardashian?

Your password no longer can be your wife's birthday or 1234567 or the word "password" or eatpoo&die. Can't be any password that has ever been used before. In the history of humanity.

Happy 237th birthday, America. Just want to say that in the right light, you don't look a day over 195. Although sometimes you still act like you're 137.

The Tangled Tango

Out of 296 applicants, not one Tea Party organization was denied non-profit status. Admittedly, some had to wait. And that's what the major charges boil down to: the IRS making things difficult. Imagine that. An inconvenient interaction with the government.

Next you'll tell me the Justice Department investigation of the Justice Department's seizure of AP reporters' phone records will lead to the Justice Department concluding that the Justice Department did nothing wrong.

The Washington punditry has banded together to float the notion that President Obama's second term agenda has stalled. Holey moley, guys. You left the movie before the opening credits rolled.

You can smell it in the air. The musty team T-shirts pulled from the backs of closets and bottoms of wardrobes. The roasting of foot-long bratwursts on an open grill behind third base. That odd pungent odor emanating from the men's room. Baseball is back and all is right with the world.

Whenever permanently displaying an impromptu decision made in a questionable state of sobriety at the age of 18, problems inevitably arise. For instance, is youth aware their extravagantly illustrated canvases have a tendency to deteriorate over time?

When you think about it, the only thing that really went right with 2012 was we misread the Mayan Calendar. Everything else is either worse than we found it or the same.

Quadriplegic Platypuses

Calm yourselves, kiddies, it's not really a cliff. More of a slim slope or bit of a ditch. A minor incline. It's an artificial crisis. Something our country's politicians specialize in.

Due to the slick situation, eternal congestion and some inexplicable glitch that has turned all the surface street stop lights to red, further delays are expected to spread across the nation as the country experiences a massive impasse on all roads leading to the cutoff meant to avert the dreaded Fiscal Cliff.
