My wife is a Christmas music junkie.  Starting right after Remembrance Day every moment in our house or car is filled with the sounds of Christmas music, either from her own iTunes collection (currently 623 songs and growing yearly), or streamed from the Internet or satellite radio.  Every year there seems to be one song that becomes that ear worm and sticks with me for the entire Christmas season.  A couple of years ago it was "Oh Holy Night", another it was "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas", this year I discovered a new one, at least to me. "My Grown Up Christmas List".  The song was written by Canadian David Foster and his then wife Linda Thompson-Jenner.  It was originally recorded by David Foster with vocals by Natalie Cole in 1990, but probably the most famous version was recorded by Amy Grant in 1992, although it has been covered many times since.  The jist of the song is that we should not be asking Santa Claus for more stuff for Christmas, but that we our Christmas list should ask to solve society and the world's problems. Definitely a good sentiment in these uncertain times.

Today I got thinking...if the ISC were to have a Grown Up Security Christmas list, what would be on it?
