OK, I shouldn't be so cynical. We originally celebrated this holiday as a way to promote togetherness, and that sentiment hasn't changed to this day. Except instead of giving Pilgrims and Indians a chance to sit down and not kill each other, today Thanksgiving gives families a chance to sit down and enjoy each other's company. Or not.

Americans like to eat, and tend to be willing to do it regardless of who they are doing it with. And that is the magic of Thanksgiving.
Recently, however, Thanksgiving has taken on a new meaning for some of us. I think Jack Nasty knows what I'm talking about, but right now he's completely disgusted because he just found out L.D. Newsome doesn't read Jake Watch. Son of a bitch.
