Off topic, but I am sure a lot of you Listmates will enjoy this.

The highlight of "The Dean Martin Christmas Show," which was just released on DVD,
is a comedy bit with the host dressed in a tux playing an employee at a department
store complaint department. He's visited by Bob Newhart, who wants to return a bad
toupee. The two try to maintain their composure but can't stop laughing during the
sketch. The swinging fun, which aired in 1968, also features Dom DeLuise, Dennis
Weaver, a cameo by Bob Hope and plenty of holiday songs with Dino, the Golddiggers
and his staff's offspring. Hollywood legends such as William Holden announce the
children's charities that would be receiving deliveries thanks to the show.

"Jesus loves you."
A nice gesture in church but a terrible thing to hear in a Mexican prison.
