Sanity Claus 3

A Christmas tradition in these parts:

Santa Claus rides a fire truck

Though in the past he has come in the evening.

    I didn’t see him at first. But, when a fire truck is around here, it’s because of a fire. I found the reason why. As of 2000, you had not quite 73,000 people. Lakewood is double that.

    Wilmington may have not quite 73,000 people. New Castle County has almost 500,000, over half the population of Delaware. Most of us live north of the canal.

    And we are functionally a suburb of Philadelphia, which is a big city.

    A very big city.

    You know, I realized this just a couple of weeks ago, when I had a visitor from out of town.

    I love Philadelphia. It’s a great city. It has its faults, as do all cities, but I love Philly.

    Except, of course, for the Flyers.

    Philly reminds me of Dallas. The Dallas/Ft.Worth metro area is over 6 million in population. That’s more than the whole STATE of Colorado. (Plus, we have scenery here where Texas has oil rigs) Despite the miserable cold, I’m staying here.
