CHRISTOPHER HITCHENS ON THANKSGIVING

Hitch treats us to his perspective as an immigrant celebrating the most distinctively American holiday.
I once grabbed a plate of what was quite possibly turkey, but which certainly involved processed cranberry and pumpkin, in a U.S. Army position in the desert on the frontier of Iraq. It was the worst meal--by far the worst meal--I have ever eaten. But in all directions from the chow-hall, I could see Americans of every conceivable stripe and confession, cheerfully asserting their connection, in awful heat, with a fall of long ago. And this in a holiday that in no way could divide them. May this always be so, and may one give some modest thanks for it.

Actually, Hitchens is my favorite liberal.

Aloha,

Jeff
