I want to wish a Happy Thanksgiving Day to all my fellow posters at Newshoggers, regular readers and visitors.
A special thanks to Steve, our blog host, on a break (we hope) writing evocative creative stanzas which some day he might choose to link at Newshoggers.
And though she has been quiet lately, I want to say Hello to Kat, our researcher. Readers rarely get to hear from her except in an occasional comment, but her epistles behind the scene are an avalanche of timely and informative links which keep our juices flowing.
When I went through the kitchen just now I saw my wife making one of our favorite casseroles, using a recipe written by my mother's hand. Much better, don't you think, than something more sterile from a cookbook or the Internet?
My favorite Twitter message this year refers to Thanksgiving Day, when we celebrate leaving home and taking over someone else's country.
