Mail continues to pour in on the Christmas controversy:
John Stiefel, Southington, CT: "Mr. O, my girlfriend teaches seventh grade and is not allowed to show her students 'A Charlie Brown Christmas.' This is getting out of hand."
Brian Smith, Asheville, NC: "Anyone who denies there is an all-out assault on Christmas is a fool. If you don't want to say Merry Christmas, move to France."
Corey Citrin, Glen Oaks, NY: "As a Jewish-American, I am offended by the overwhelming images of Christmas."
Viewers also weighed in on the state of the Iraqi military:
Joe Warren, Reno, NV: "Bill, I'm in shock. For once I agree with you. We put our guys into combat after six weeks training so why can't the Iraqis fight well after almost three years?"
Al Mendoza, Torrance, CA: "I am a police officer in L.A. and our recruits spend eight months in the Academy and one year being closely supervised on the streets. We need patience in Iraq."
John Tiller, Toronto, Canada: "Bill, you ask why it is taking so long to train Iraqis. Well, it started in the first Gulf War when we asked them to revolt against Saddam and then did not help them. Thousands died. I wonder if they'll ever trust us?"
