SCENE: A corporate boardroom on the 52nd floor, with a sweeping view of the cityscape and a motivational poster on the wall featuring a child in a karate suit that reads, “Impossible is nothing.” At the conference table sit 10 men in business attire. A carafe of coffee and a tray of doughnuts wait at the center....

You know the story, the one that begins a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, with lasers, spaceships, a princess, droids and a sect of spiritual warriors intent on rescuing the galaxy from the black-clad, intergalactic villain and his army of clones....

Christmas Eve, Garden City, NY Christmas comes softly to Garden City, NY this year, nestling across this part of Long Island like a blanket fresh out of the dryer on this cold winter’s morning.
