Then and now

Terrible sacrifice versus triviality:

Then, via VDH: “Seventy-five years ago, at the Battle of the Bulge (fought from Dec. 16, 1944, to Jan. 25, 1945), the United States suffered more casualties than in any other battle in its history. Some 19,000 Americans were killed, 47,500 wounded and 23,000 reported missing.” Now, via GP: “Mood Media is pulling It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas from its holiday playlists because the song includes a lyric about guns: ‘A pair of hop-a-long boots and a pistol that shoots’.”

Yes, but today we have Saint Greta and Holy Fisa!
