Getting Santa's sleigh safe for Christmas
"It's a beautiful fall day, don't you think, dear?" Martha said as she entered the house. She had been very busy cleaning for the upcoming Christmas season. Soon all she would be able to get done would be supervising Christmas lists and the wrapping of gifts.

Nice photograph, objectionable caption
I am writing to object to the picture caption on the front page of Tuesday's Empire concerning the flu vaccine. As a registered nurse (R.N.) and husband of a R.N.
