Thanksgiving thoughts

November 22, 2007 | By | Reply More

To start off my day today, I reviewed some of the inconvenient history about Thanksgiving. Then I moved on to anticipate the headline in tomorrow’s paper. In what way (it’s not a question of if) will the newspaper urge us to spend our precious time on the planet buying things we don’t need. 

Wishing everyone some enjoyable time off from your routine, and a chance to spend time with the people you love. 

But do stay away from the stores.  Why?  See this post and affiliated links.

I’ll close with Jon Stewart’s take on Thanksgiving:

I celebrated Thanksgiving in an old-fashioned way. I invited everyone in my neighborhood to my house, we had an enormous feast, and then I killed them and took their land.
