The Native Americans called it “Maize”

Yesterday was a pretty uneventful turkey day. The better part of the day was spent cleaning and pruning the basement collection, which was kind of fun (despite the concrete floor being freezing cold). I suppose it’s the first preparations for Graduation-Party-o-Rama. Thanksgiving dinner was pretty much the same as every year, same old fixins, complimented nicely by the Charlie Brown Thanksgiving Special.

The CBTS really gets me going. Charlie Brown talks about Christmas Creep before it became cool to do so. There’s also the obligatory explanation of why the pilgrims left England. Juxtapose that with today: evangelicals persecuting aetheists and even sub-prime christians. Where will we go to escape them? Witch Mountain? Cuz there’s no escaping from there.
