Three things I'm thankful for
Happy Thanksgiving, turkeys. Here are three things for which I give thanks this year.
1. The tireless diplomatic efforts of Sean Penn, who is trying to broker a summit between Cuba's Raul Castro and President-Elect Barack Obama. This series of events has only one conclusion: Susan Sarandon as Secretary of Defense.
2. Official Red Sox caskets, which you can get at the Magoun-Biggins Funeral Home in Abington, Mass. As a long-time reader who called this item to my attention said, "Gives new meaning to the term 'die hard fan.'"
3. John Cusack's protrayal of Martin Blank in 1997's Grosse Pointe Blank, which will inspire me when I attend Mrs. N-B's high school reunion tomorrow night. "I am at home with the me, I am rooted in the me who is on this adventure."
