OFFENSIVE CHRISTMAS CARD DRAWS APOLOGY
The New York Law Journal carried a story on December 18 on the distribution of 1500 Christmas cards to the friends and associates of a New York law firm, Rudolph & Beer. Playing off the name of the firm, the card showed a picture of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer dressed as one of the three Wise Men, bringing a foaming mug of beer to the baby Jesus. The Catholic League failed to find the humor in all this and let the law firm know it. An apology was granted within 24 hours.
