On this December 25th

we celebrate the birth of a man who spent his life challenging authority and preaching tolerance, and whose touching and inspirational words have long outlived his premature demise.

I speak, of course, of the great Rod Serling. Which is appropriate, because only in a Twilight Zone could we celebrate en masse the birth of a mythical figure who casually told nonbelievers that the ultimate causatum of their existence was to burn in a great lake of fire for all eternity.

Nice guy, huh?
