Cursory Thanksgiving post

I'm thankful that I'm alive. As long as I have breath in me, the people responsible for my existence, subsistence, happiness, and the aid in my emotional health will know that I'm grateful. I'm happy that I have another opportunity to share a couple days off with the people that mean so much to me. We all need that, because life is short. To those of you who can't or don't have that opportunity, for whatever reason, you have my deepest sympathies.

Aside from that, and as a more truthful alternative to what is traditionally seen as the Thanksgiving story, I offer this and this.

America is not perfect. It never has been free for everyone. Remember that.
