    actors ever since I first saw him portray the Texas governor in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.  He can make me laugh out loud (like in Whorehouse and Home for the Holidays), or cry like a baby (like his guest appearance in that NCIS episode).

    The only thing that really threatened to ruin my Thanksgiving happened a couple hours before the meal when a friend and I took cookies and lemonade to the local Walmart for the picketers.  We were there about a half-hour listening to the picketers' stories, which were all horrifying, depressing or infuriating - or all three.  But the trip turned uplifting to see how grateful these people were for the attention we gave them, the willing ear to hear their stories, and of course the treats.  Bless these workers and fie on the Walton family for being such self-righteous, greedy bastards.
