Watching the Watchmen

If you haven't listened to This American Life's December 29th podcast then you're probably still playing catch up after the holidays like me.  However, I recommend doing so as soon as possible as it's a quality episode but especially so for Joshua Bearman's piece on the infighting currently shaking the very foundations of the Amalgamated Order of Real Bearded Santa's.  (Bearman, you may remember, was also the author of the previously mentioned excellent piece from Rolling Stone on real superheroes, he's got a real thing going there.  Did you see what I did right there?  Did you see it?)  If for nothing else you will need it to make sense of this

PS - You could also throw some change their way.
