On behalf of everyone here at The Daily Banter, including Chez Pazienza, Oliver Willis and especially our esteemed publisher Ben Cohen, I'd like to extend to you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving. We couldn't do this without your support and your smart, insightful comments.
It's been a wild year and an even wilder month. In a political sense, we have much to be thankful for, considering the positive outcome of the election -- and not just at the presidential level. It was a campaign that helped to reinforce human rights and dignity for so many Americans and will ultimately lead to a better and more prosperous America.
To that end, perhaps take a moment to consider those who are still struggling: either with the consequences of Hurricane Sandy, or with the ongoing fallout from the recession, or with the basic acquisition of life's necessities: food, healthcare and shelter.
Donate to the American Red Cross here.
Donate to Planned Parenthood here.
Donate to Habitat for Humanity here.
Cheers and Happy Thanksgiving!
