Happy Thanksgiving

For this week's column in the Waukesha Freeman, I mention a few of the things for which I am grateful. I am especially grateful I am not having dinner with an editor of the New York Times:

Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin recently did the Thanksgiving photo opportunity of pardoning the Thanksgiving turkey at a turkey farm. While the press was interviewing her on camera, the turkey farmer processed a couple of turkeys in the background.

The squeamish New York Times editorial board actually complained about Palin’s interview, calling the slaughter of the turkeys an "execution" and "carnage." What do they eat for Thanksgiving? Tofu?
