I can’t help thinking of the Standing Rock standoff, remnants of the original Americans still fending off white terrorists to this day, a day commemorating the beginning of their demise. It’s all the more poignant after an election that brought white supremacist fascists back into power.
But enough about that. I’m thankful that we are still relatively secure for the time being, being left alone to celebrate our own humble but homey turkey day. We’re thankful we have a warm place, food to eat, and each other.
So, food’s a-roasting, bluegrass is a-playing, and for anyone out there at loose ends, the turkey day V-bar is open for the duration. All are welcome. Let the drinking continue, er, begin! Cheers!
