    Last week we published an email I received in response to a column I wrote in which I accused President Obama of having class. Sharon Ocker told me I was wrong, stupid, and probably a communist. Okay, she didn't actually say that. She did, however, explain to me why she thought I was mistaken. Understand, I am not berating Sharon Ocker for her letter. On the contrary, I commend her for doing something that, sadly, too few people in our community seem willing to do these days: write to the paper. I encourage her to continue to write and tell me everything that is wrong with everything I write.

    Thanksgiving used to be for me - Pilgrims and Indians. Now it is probably for many even less than that - not too much history taught on thanks anymore. I want thanksgiving to be more than merely a generic holiday - like the rest of the “holiday season.” I have assembled three passages to guide us in thanking God. Each one is unique. Each reveal something different about God and our approach to Him.
