    Ho, ho, ho - Santa defeats Archie the Snowman 

    Want a break from politics? Try David Giffels' column in the Akron Beacon Journal. David exposes the demise of Archie the talking Snowman, a 35-year tradition at Akron's Chapel Hill Mall. Come to think of it, this isn't much of a break. This is the politics of seasonal marketing and, with Richard Buchholozer no longer in charge, the ordinariness of Santa Claus has won. Ohioblog hopes Chapel Hill follows David's advice and donates Archie to the community. Of course, there is a risk. Archie might outdraw Santa.
