While the mid-term elections provided much for which to be thankful, there also remains a great deal for which we have every right to be ungrateful. It will certainly be increasingly difficult for President Bush to continue ramming his radical agenda down America's collective throat in the wake of the mid-term elections, but Thanksgiving day in particular can only be heart-rending for the families of those serving extended tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan.
As you sit down to dinner with what will hopefully be a warm gathering of those closest to you, please be sure to remember those who are less fortunate, whether because of economic disadvantage, accident or birth, or simply because they risk their lives at the whim of incompetents. (And please be nice to one another, no matter how much you sometimes drive each other crazy!)
Happy Thanksgiving to all, wherever you may be!
