I love Thanksgiving. I suppose if you wanted to overthink it, you could use the day as an occasion to review Johnson v. M'Intosh or some other historical facts. I prefer to use the holiday to give sincere thanks for the many good things in my life, and to eat a lot. Thanksgiving strikes me as a very traditional and conservative holiday. In that spirit, I'd just like to share my humble opinion that all true Americans should eat turkey on Thanksgiving, just like the Pilgrims and the Indians did (in the elementary school version, at any rate). Eating anything else strikes me as un-American. I'll make an exception for anything you hunt and kill yourself. But one friend of mine told me once that her family ate prime rib on Thanksgiving. I suggested that she and her family move to Canada.
