Just Asking

More than 400 new friends at Young & Rubicam. I’ve got a lot to be thankful for. —

I’m thankful for my family, friends and the people I get to work with every day. I’m thankful I don’t have to “check with the boss first”— except at home. I’m thankful my assistant does my time sheets. I’m thankful for every team that’s ever beaten the Yankees, and especially for those who’ve beaten them badly. I’m thankful this will be George Bush’s last term. —

I’m thankful that I’m actually home for a Thanksgiving. In Amsterdam [where I worked previously], we didn’t observe it, so that was kind of weird. Finding a Dutch turkey wasn’t that easy. I’m thankful to be home with my family, eating a turkey that doesn’t weigh 1.3 lbs. I’m thankful for digital cameras and ranunculuses out of season.

I’m thankful the American people finally seem to be waking up to the fact that the war was a horrible mistake. Hopefully, many of our soldiers will be home next year to have Thanksgiving with their families.
