LIBERAL THANKSGIVING, CONSERVATIVE THANKSGIVING. Years ago, Badger Herald columnist John Chmura penned a column, "Thanksgivings conservative and liberal." His thesis: conservatives enjoy Thanksgiving, liberals tend to be ambivalent if not hostile. The pattern continues: here is a Stephen Moore column from National Review (recommended by No. 2 Pencil), and here is a Caroline Arnold essay from Common Dreams.

Disclosure: I helped out at the Herald in 1971-1972.
