Thanksgiving thoughts

You knew I was was gonna talk about good old Thanksgiving.

But, I'm not going to focus on Pilgrims and Native Americans. Instead, the holiday reminds me of denial or, as Emily Post would say, etiquette. Not to mention the origins of the holiday, placed strategically by presidents of our American past who wanted to both/either claim the Christmas holiday shopping season and/or remind us of God's role in how we thank an industry that has us killing animals left and right just to have what has been universally decided "normal" on a Thanksgiving dinner table.

And this at a time when we are connecting less and less with others while marriage is pushed down our throats by gays and straights alike as an end all to our personal journeys.
