    On this Thanksgiving, when so many of us are warm and well fed and healthy and safe -- but so many others, so many more, are not -- I'm not only grateful for my good fortune (due to very little work of my own, mostly dumb luck), but I'd also like to give thanks to this community, to Travel Underground.

    It has been, if not a lifesaver, then darn near close, as I have found common cause with so many thoughtful, articulate, talented, courageous, and downright funny people! Humor goes a long way in any battle, and god knows we need it for this one.

    I've been an activist all my life, but the internet has made it possible to be an activist in more places, in more ways, with more people, than ever before. Fighting for what's right, especially when one is surrounded by so many people for whom wrong is just fine, is tough and lonely. It has been made less so by TUG. Thank you, mes amis. I am profoundly grateful.

    Although I oftentimes get very discouraged that We, The People, will be able to bring this monster under control, it is very encouraging to visit here and be uplifted.

    Although I tend somewhat to agree with Lisa when she talks about "so many people for whom wrong is just fine", I think there are a lot of people out there who feel as we do but are silent on the subject. If we continue our effort, more people will join with us in demanding change at TSA.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all!
