Giving Thanks, a holiday break
There’s a fair bit of hokum wrapped around the Thanksgiving holiday we’re about to celebrate here in the states, which I’m particularly aware of as I just finished Nathanial Philbrick’s excellent Mayflower: A Story of Courage, Community, and War. But it’s always good to get together with friends and family. And to give thanks. I have much to be grateful for, like all of you who read Panbo, and especially the ones who take the time to participate in the comments sections and forums. It may get contentious sometimes, but it’s good. And a specific thanks to Roy Delgado, who made me laugh twice; first with the cartoon above, and then again when explaining how he’d hoped it might the one that finally got accepted by the New Yorker magazine…after nearly 20,000 submissions! I’ll be back on Monday, and iPhone users should come by early, as I’ll have 50 treats to hand out.
