I hope the world will be able to forget the great unwashed occupiers, yet at the same time some keystone cops on the west coast get their pepper spray taken away and that college president with her pretentious air and attitude and accent gets sent packing to from whence she came in the first place.
I hope the world will talk about ANYTHING other than Penn State for five minutes. Of course I also hope Sandusky's dick shrivels up and falls off. And shame on the freaks who are bullying the kid victims. But is anyone surprised Penn State covered all this up? Or that any university covers shit up? Grow up people, you aren't in Neverland anymore! These schools are BIG business. They own the towns in which they exist...and this occurs all over the country. Look around the greater Philadelphia and Main Line area for Pete's sake.
I am thankful for Thanksgiving to get a break from Radnor's political turkeys - especially the ones that seem to be not like cats with nine lives but the un-dead. But I am afraid that while we are all at out Thanksgiving tables some new unnecessary land purchases will be made or something, aren't you? But I will chalk it up to lay down with dogs get up with fleas - Radnor residents have chosen fleas over common sense so they might just end up with the plague. Not that things in Tredyffrin or Lower Merion are much better...
I will be thankful to get a break from all the silliness that is the Main Line. I am looking forward to being able to spend time with friends and family and pretending for just a minute we live in a kind world where Christian Charity and values matter. Of course as soon as the Black Friday sales start, all bets are off and it will be wiser to cocoon along the Main Line versus getting in a car or attempting to go into any store.
Congratulations America....we are the land of the free and commercial. And Groupons for Botox and other injectibles. (But hell, there is no accessory finer than a frozen face at Philadelphia over abundance of bad philanthropic party efforts.)
My TRUE wish for Thanksgiving is for all of us to get back to basics and basic values. Don't know if it's possible....so.....Happy Thanksgiving Main Line! We are indeed truly ridiculous.
