As I mentioned in an earlier post, I spent part of Christmas Eve watching that holiday classic, "It's a Wonderful Life." I must have seen it dozens of times over the years. The message is supposed to be that everyone was better off in a world that contained George Bailey. He is shown how miserable people's lives are without him. Of course the big exception is the evil Mr Potter who would own the entire town without George around. There is another person who is a major exception, however, which people tend to overlook. That person is Nick the bartender. In a world with George he is just a bartender. On Xmas Eve the bar is almost deserted. In the world without a George, however, Nick is the actual owner of the bar, and it's wall-to-wall people on Xmas Eve. His cash register is also constantly ringing with incoming money which is giving an awful lot of angels their wings. Just an observation.
