Celebrate Festivus with Jim Babka
By Perry Willis

Today is your chance to celebrate Festivus with Jim Babka, on his radio show. In fine Festivus tradition you can participate in "an airing of grievances" and "feats of strength."

The "airing of grievances" is easy. Tell us what really irks you -- about government, politics, other institutions, Downsize DC, or even Jim Babka. Jim will attempt to show sympathy, or perhaps something else. As for the "feats of strength," brag about something you claim you can do, if you want to. Maybe Jim will believe it.

For those who don't know, "Festivus" is another year-end Holiday, but this one was invented on the sit-com "Seinfeld," and has since taken on a life of it's own. We're all for Holiday's, comedy, and having fun. So we've decided to adopt Festivus as our official celebration.

Which isn't to say that we have anything against Christmas. Quite the contrary. Merry Christmas!

Jim claims he will have contributions of his own to make to both the Festivus and Christmas spirits. So tune in, call in, and email in.

You can call 1-800-259-9231 or email Jim during the show at CALL AT downsizedc dot org.

There will be updates from Gun Owners of America and the Marijuana Policy Project.

The program airs at 4:06 PM Eastern (3:06 PM Central, 2:06 PM Mountain, and 1:06 PM Pacific) and can be heard at

Thank you for being a DC Downsizer.
