Happy Thanksgiving Weekend

Okay we are down for the weekend…. still we wish a great Thanksgiving Weekend to you all.

This is a distinctively American holiday, and one that I’ve always thought of as a bookend to July 4.

July 4 celebrates our assertion of national independence and of the human right to self-government.

Thanksgiving acknowledges the limits of human self-assertion and acknowledges gratitude for the unbought graces of life, including American life.

Together, somehow, they make for a well-rounded view of politics, and life.

We have decided to share in that bounty that God has so greatly granted us by gifts of food to our neighbors that might not have had such a great year.

In any case: Happy Thanksgiving Weekend… see you Sunday.
