Martha Stewart and the True Meaning of Christmas (In Prison)

marthanativity.jpgThe AP has a story about the nativity scene Martha Stewart made in prison. We didn’t watch the show the reporter is referring to, but we get the sense that Martha doesn’t totally get the whole going-to-prison-on-a-fraud-conviction thing. Imported German cermaic palm trees? We want her to show off her homemade tats.

On the Christmas Day episode of her television show, Stewart showed off ornate clay forms of the baby Jesus, Joseph, Mary, three camels and others she sculpted at a pottery class at the Federal Prison Camp in Alderson, W.Va.

“Even though every inmate was only allowed to do one a month, and I was only there for five months, I begged because I said I was an expert potter — ceramicist actually — and could I please make the entire nativity scene,” she said.
