Wow, Danny! What fun to be reminded of commenting on your blog. It feels like so much has happened since we all started blogging, eh? I would never have dreamed of blogging if it hadn't have been for you! But then again I wouldn't have written my first book if it wasn't for you.

So, you are definitely on my list for Thanksgiving Day. I am so grateful for you, Danny! Happy Thanksgiving to you, Kendall and Leah!

Jill Sobule just (sort of) wrote a wonderful song about the pardoned turkey. Read about it here...

Happy Thanksgiving, Danny.

A Washington Post article this week reveals the turkey pardons to be the "Stuffing of Historic Legend." And, as they put it, "But like any masterly misdirection, like a fake FEMA news conference, like a government-produced "news" segment, ah, the turkey pardonings are not what they seem."

Happy Thanksgiving a little late.

I forgot to do the thank my first commenter post this year. I'll have to do that tonight.

Danny, I remember cooking a tofurkey for my then vegetarian daughter about 5 years ago. Even she hated it and I vowed never to do it again. I actually really like tofu, but I am decidedly against the idea of trying to disguise tofu as something it isn't.

I have a love/hate relationship with comments basically because I too didn't really know what a blog was when I began mine in 04

I was so naive I thought a good url was freenynyfrombushtoday. Thought the radical right was something that existed on talk radio, and committed other unpardonable sins

I do think blogging is narcissistic but an addictive good form of it--sometimes--and encourage people to read not always to comment

The one time I had turkey tofu for Thanksgiving in the shape of a turkey I thought it was very pretty to look at

The best thing about Tofurkey is that pronouncing it seems like you are getting away with using profanity in public.

The photo at top reminds me of one in the NYT from the Nixon era. The caption they used, updated for today:

"President Bush, on left, with turkey."
