Open Thread: Thanks on November 4th

by Latoya Peterson

Okay, I’ll just be blunt – fuck Thanksgiving. This year, I am all about giving Thanks on Election Day.

Now, I could rattle off a whole list of what I am personally thankful for – the ancestors who took water hoses, beatings, incarceration and dog maulings to afford me my rights, the fact that people are actually excited about this election, the end of those fucking attack ads that make me wish I had TiVo – but I want to hear from y’all.

Though, I’m sure most of y’all are either in line, at work, phone banking, or passed out from the stress.

Ah well – if there’s anyone here, give your thanks, or talk amongst yourselves.
