Frosty the Snowman is a pop culture icon from the classic song written by Steve Edward Nelson and Walter “Jack” Rollins and recorded by Gene Autry in 1950. It was later adapted into a Little Golden Book in 1951, a black and white animation short in 1954, and a TV special in 1969. The song has been included in various Christmas albums by popular performers for half a century. The Song After seeing the success of “Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer” the year before, Nelson and Rollins wrote “Frosty the
Freudian(Psychoanalytical) Literary Analysis of Doubt Doubt by John Patrick Shanley is about a nun who is entirely convinced that a priest had done something inappropriate to one of the students and taken advantage of the fact that the student (Donald Muller) is an African American. Sister Aloysius Beauvier, the nun, concluded that Father Flynn, the priest, had been forcing Donald Muller to drink wine and molesting him. With the help of a naive nun named Sister James, Sister Aloysius attempted to
Sticking two black button eyes on our snowman, I turned and gave Charlie a high-five. "Finished!" I said. "And there's not a finer snowman in the whole neighborhood." But Charlie wasn't looking at me. He was staring at the snowman, his face almost as white. "D-d-d-did you s-s-s-see THAT?" he stammered. When I looked at what Charlie was looking at I could not believe it. The snowman was alive! How can that be. Me and Charlie looked at each other with are white pal faces and dropped open mouths
Flynn then she must be correct. Another weakening point of Sister Aloysius is that she seems to resent change. Her negative association with change is illustrated most clearly through: Her hatred for ballpoint pens, Donald Muller, and the song frosty the snowman.
The word snowman is not offensive by any means. It was not created with an intension to offend, demean, or label any group. But the new term for snowman is snowperson. Frosty the Snowman, the children’s tale that familiarized America with the term snowman, was originally created as a Christmas song.

Vivaciously, I leaped off the bus, skipping the last few steps. Ella carefully climbed down the stairs behind me; as our bus driver waved goodbye, closing the creaky, metal doors with a “whirr, clang.” We watched as bus 93 glided around the corner, and disappeared. Placid, little houses towered over us, my younger sister and I, as we began to stroll down the sidewalk. Stopping in front of each crack in the cement, I paused and dramatically hopped over the trench. Beating, golden rays had long
Aloysius had it out for him just because of the manner he ran the church. "You just don't like him! You don't like it that he uses a ballpoint pen. You don't like it that he takes 3 lumps of sugar in his tea. You don't like it that he likes Frosty the Snowman and you are letting that convince you? Of something that's terrible... Just terrible..." After she hits a dead end with James she then goes behind the Priest's back and calls a conference with Donald Miller's mother. As they are walking to

On a crisp June morning, I was driving my golf cart through the neighborhood listening to some music and having a great morning and then suddenly it took a turn downhill. You see the debris on the ground and I'm in shocked of what just happen. Screaming at the top of my lungs for help, hoping someone would hear me and call for help. Blood running down my leg, hearing the ambulance sirens in the back ground. Just hoping this is a dream. On a Tuesday afternoon I decided to take the golf cart out for
Political correctness has gone too far The "Politically Correct" movement's purpose is to bring historically condescending terms, offensive music and art, and controversial educational content to an end and replace them with more positive and less-offending references. Offensive and demoralizing efforts are wrong, but the censorship and deletion of words and phrases that do not contain the intention to demoralize are taking political correctness too far. Politically correct (or "PC") antics have
