How do you start some smack in the WWL-TV studio? Just ask them which Christmas film is the G.O.A.T. The question, it turns out, is WWL's current Web query, and this morning, Eric and Sally Ann — and meteorologist Laura Buchtel, several cameramen, a New Orleans Junior Leaguer and the O. Perry Walker choir — almost went to blows over the relative merits of It's a Wonderful Life versus The Christmas Story. I'm afraid I've got your back here, Paulsen: Jimmy Stewart takes out that precocious little four-eyes every day of the week (and twice next Friday).
