    I'm sure I'm not the only Kossack with grandparents, uncles, aunts and cousins who live in rural America. And even if they have been Fox-news-ified, I don't care. The love I have for them is more important to me than scoring political points. Fox news loves to make us hate each other. I will continue to hate Fox news for that, not my family. How many more Thanksgiving dinners have to be ruined?

      and shaking our heads over whatever stark political gaps we seem to have developed over the years - guess we're lucky we're still all talking!

      it's the kind of perspective that ol' Thanksgiving is supposed to serve up - hope everyone here got some glow like that in this year's edition, and through to 2013.

      Remember, if it weren't for Squanto, all those silly Pilgrims would've starved...

      Hope is, after all, the currency of popular politics, and a coin surprisingly hard to devalue. -- Fred Anderson, Crucible of War
