The East Bay Today: November 23, 2006

Happy Thanksgiving, East Bay!

Normally we’d give you a list of places to go and things to do today, but we know you’re all home packing in the stuffing and watching the toob, hoping one of the Macy’s parade balloons will go AWOL again this year and do some major damage. But if you’ve got a spare moment for some Thanksgiving-related civic pride, we do suggest you hop on over to the White House Web page, where you can learn about our country’s venerable annual tradition of … pardoning a turkey. To quote:

    Presidents traditionally have granted the National Thanksgiving Turkey a “pardon.” After the presentation, the National Turkey and its alternate will be taken to Disneyland Resort and Theme Park in Anaheim, California to be a part of the holiday display and where they will stay the remainder of their natural lives. Both the turkeys will serve as honorary Grand Marshals for Disneyland’s annual Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Ain’t that America?
