Staying Busy Over Thanksgiving

While I'm signing off the blog here for a couple days, there's no shortage of things on to keep you occupied. Please check out the latest summaries of conservative research, the Fall edition of the Insider magazine, and the features are always fun reading.

If you get done with all of that, check out the American Council on Science and Health's Thanksgiving menu, from which we learn, "No human diet can be free of naturally occurring chemicals that are rodent carcinogens. Of the chemicals that people eat, 99.99% are natural."

Mmmm, carcinogens. Find out how many you're eating already, think about how good they taste, and then rejoice that the government isn't regulating them yet.

The Heritage Policy Weblogger brings our attention to something we should be REALLY thankful for.

And from our friends at the Federalist, a great Thanksgiving quote:

"Measured by the standards of men of their time, ... [the Pilgrims] were the humble of the earth. Measured by later accomplishments, they were the mighty. In appearance weak and persecuted they came -- rejected, despised -- an insignificant band; in reality strong and independent, a mighty host of whom the world was not worthy, destined to free mankind." ---Calvin Coolidge

Y'all have a blessed Thanksgiving and keep safe!
