Your humble Curmudgeon extends holiday greetings to all, including our non-US readers who don’t celebrate this day and who may not even know what it’s about. Our benevolence has no bounds.
Thanksgiving is traditionally a slow day around here, so we’ll treat this post as an Intellectual Free Fire Zone. Feel free to express yourselves. Discuss science, economics, politics, or … well, there isn’t anything else, is there? Banter, babble, bicker, bluster, blaspheme; say what you will. But beware of the profanity filters.
For nostalgia, here’s our original Thanksgiving thread from three years ago. We think it’s still worth reading: Of Plymouth Plantation: “Every Man for His Own Particular”.
And we want to remind you that Kitzmas is coming. Next month we’ll all celebrate the sixth anniversary of the decision on 20 December 2005 by Judge John E. Jones III in the case of Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District. While the Discoveroids are celebrating the 20th anniversary of Phillip Johnson’s Darwin on Trial, the book that founded the cult of intelligent design, their movement has been legally dead for six years.
We now throw open the comments to you, dear reader. Have at it.
