Subject: RE: BS: Happy Thanksgiving America!
All I can say is Martin, you should be ashamed of yourself, saying happy thanksgiving with the ulterior motive of flushing out people to insult.

I'm sure that's not the idea behind this festival at all.

On a more serious note, when I was a kid I grew up in town of Boston in Lincolnshire, and every day I used to bike past the Guildhall where the poor old pilgrim fathers were imprisoned after their first abortive attempt at escaping England in 1607.

the American people certainly have a lot to be proud of in their history, and if they want to call their country the greatest - well that's okay with me. Its just like some people think they had the greatest Mum in the world. Love makes it seem that way.

happy Thanksgiving.
