In the old "Three yards and a cloud of dust" approach, the press is today all turkey and gravy. Mount Rushmore floats and pilgrim floats at the parade are celebrated. The traditional trappings of an old American Thanksgiving, with a few embellishes and changes, are all the rage.
Since the press has set aside it's push to abolish the holiday, no doubt waiting until next year to move the ball forward another three yards, I'll post my own traditional post. From a happier time, when a liberal vehicle meant to extol liberalism still reminded us that there is a world of difference between fundamentalism and terrorism.
Enjoy, and have a blessed and thanks laden holiday as we remember the story of people whose grit and devotion might do us some good to remember.
