Happy Thanksgiving!

Save the turkeys! (Although this turkey sure looks awfully smug, doesn't he?) Don't eat too much. And take a minute or two to look around and see what you've got to be thankful for. (But don't forget--being thankful doesn't have to mean being satisfied. There's still room to fight to make things better.)

We're Grateful for Your Service

Back to World War I imagery (from the great George Evans), which is the war that first brought us the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month (and this time, of course, of the 11th year). The U.S. is now preparing to drop its number of hot wars to just one. Let's keep our fingers crossed on that. But in the meantime, here's a note of thanks to all of those who have served (and are currently serving) in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as those who answered the call of duty in historical wars.
