My brother posted on Facebook about getting gifts for his kids - and a lump of coal for his soon-to-be 15-year-old son.
Can you still give coal for Christmas? Is that allowed in this cap-and-trade age? How'd he sneak that past Al Gore and President Obama? Will a judge overrule my brother on this gift idea?
Besides, my brother didn't need to go out to pick up a lump of coal. There's a mountain of coal in my parents' backyard, remnants from his childhood.
