"A Bird of Courage"

Anna at A Summary View has this Thanksgiving's must-read post, as she busts some myths on the Founding Fathers and their views about turkeys.

And for your viewing pleasure, here's the official White House turkey pardoning ceremony from yesterday. I really enjoy that our president can riff a little on the absurdities: "You know, there are certain days that remind me of why I ran for this office. And then there are moments like this, where I pardon a turkey and send it to Disneyland."

Happy Thanksgiving, all!
