I 've just come from Cambridge, that beehive of brilliance, where nerds don't feel self-conscious: There's always someone nerdier nearby. If you are the World's Leading Authority on the mating habits of the jabberwock beetle of the Lesser Jujube Archipelago, you can take comfort in knowing that the pinch-faced drone next to you at Starbucks may be the W.L.A. on 17th-century Huguenot hymnody or a niche of quantum physics that is understood by nobody but himself. People in Cambridge learn to be wary of brilliance, having seen geniuses in the throes of deep thought step into potholes and disappear.

It's the holiday season in New Jersey! In this week's episode we got a glimpse of how the ladies of the Garden State celebrate the Christmas season. Teresa: The episode started off with Teresa and her family setting up and decorating their Christmas tree. Correction, it was Joe setting up the tree. Milania said to her father, “I'm a girl, I'm not a boy, you set up it up.” Way to reinforce traditional gender roles, Milania… For Christmas, Teresa got Milania an Easy Bake Oven and I'll admit I was very jealous of the 7-year-old.

The Bowie Baysox are celebrating Christmas in July with “Manny Claus,” and you can too. The first 1,000 fans over age 13 at Bowie's July 24 game at Prince George's Stadium will be given Manny Machado holiday bobblehead dolls . Machado is wearing a Santa Claus suit and holding a candy cane bat. The Baysox have not said whether Machado posed for the bobblehead in person, so I am imagining that he did until I'm told otherwise. The Orioles are in Seattle on the 24th, so it's safe to say the person in the Santa suit will not actually be Machado.  Machado spent 109 games in Bowie in 2012, with a .266/.352/.438 with 11 home runs and 59 RBI before he joined the Orioles for the team's playoff run. He was a Platinum Glove third baseman in 2013 despite his knee injury, though this wonderfully bizarre promotion might be the highlight of his season so far. Machado is batting coming off a five-hit day, and is batting .395 with four home runs in his last 10 games, though that streak was divided by a suspension for his bat-throwing incident that brought him scorn from across baseball.

Earlier today I became aware that that insipid Christmas song, “The Little Drummer Boy,” which I have loathed these many years, was running in my head and would not stop . Mild and even-tempered a fellow as I am, a virtual milquetoast, I could not help but reflect how gratifying it would be if the composer, lyricist, arranger, musicians, and everyone involved in the publication, production, dissemination, and broadcast of that song were set...

At the great age of 91, I look forward, as Christmas approaches, to being with my children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. It is their time, because Christmas belongs to the young. The little ones will open their gifts and with rapt faces, try out new toys, many unfamiliar to me in this modern world.Then days of my own youth return vividly to me, shared with loved ones now gone. I remember shopping with my mother, never until after Thanksgiving, when department stores displayed toys in Christmas-decorated windows.

As President Obama tries to enjoy his Christmas vacation in Hawaii (the land of his birth, as recognized by most Americans except the diehard fringe still casting him as a foreigner), he has a lot to reflect on. In his last White House press conference before departing, he exchanged tidings of good cheer with reporters. But he was also peppered with as many reminders of how badly things turned out for him in the past year. It fell to the toughest but fairest reporter in the room, ABC News' Jonathan Karl, to confront him with the bark off: "You may not want to call it the worst year of your presidency, but it's clearly been a tough year.
