Thanks for an intelligent but not stuffy blog. Thanks for the ceasefire that brings quiet to many friends I have all over the Middle East. Thanks for a great life, great kids, great grandkids and, of course, my wife. Even thanks to the X one and X two.
I very much like this American festival of gratitude.
I'm grateful for this blog, and for the many clever and prescient things it has said to me about the way the world is. I'm grateful for international solidarity that comes in the form of snark and polite disagreement.
I hope all of the American members of the commentariat are having, and will have, a very lovely day.
Thanks for bringing a daily dose of delight to my life. I will not be needing the t-shirts, because I have formed a comfy bikini using the bumper stickers. (But if t-shirts happened, I would be the first in line to buy one. The bikini gets a little cold this time of year.)
Actually, Dbp, the Shyamalan twist is that Ed, unknowingly suffering from multiple personality disorder, logs in at various times during the day as *each* of us–that's right, we've been *Ed* this whole time!!! (That pun probably strikes me as a lot funnier than it actually is.)
thanks for bringing up such good topics. thanks for the wonderful things i missed and read later. the ability to rage against the injustices and hatreds is a great gift as well. that alone is what makes this a wonderful electronic reality. thought is such a compelling thing, helps me look past my humanity into the eyes of others.
Between the awesome blog posts and a comment section that tends to enlighten, rather than decend into a vapid abyss, I am thankful for this blog. Thanks Ed, and thanks to the cast of characters posting comments here regularly.
Happy everything, and thanks for all the laughs. If this were a just world, you'd be owning half of the clicking done on the internet. (The other half, of course, would go to Tbogg, and God would paralyze the fingers of all the halfwits and assholes out there haunting the webz.) May your turkey tacos be juicy and your gin strong.
This is the smartest blog with the smartest commentators on the interwebs. You may think you haven't accomplished much but you have created one of the bright spots in the world. God, Jeebus, FSM, etc. bless Ed.
Long time listener, first time caller. Dittos! Also, @Dbp: banananana. Nana. Also, too, I trust that each of us, in our own Special ways, celebrated the late holiday in the fullest effort to be as Boggie as possible (or at least up to the hairy feet part). I, myself, have adopted into the Nosefinger family, but whether you're a Clubfoot, Stool or Naugahyde by descent, I hope that you all attempted to live up to the noble sentiments invoked by the national anthem of the Sty (see the link below, but for goodness' sake, go out and buy a copy too). They make great Christmas presents for that member of the family who has everything..
Very thankful for Ed and the great posters here, who give me a place to cheat on the strange bedfellows (love those guys, honest!)on my homesite ,and get great zingers to troll them with. I always credit you, really. Well, almost always.Don't link you because I don't know how to link and am too old to learn.
Also thankful to live in Canada where we have Thanksgiving at a freakin' rational time, halfway between Labour Day and Christmas.
And er, God, thanks for the Argos win and Judge Hackland. Toronto really needed you and you came through.
