This afternoon, while perusing the on-line edition of my local newspaper, The Orlando Sentinel, I encountered one of those survey forms designed to foment reader-to-reader discussions. A regular feature of the on-line edition, these surveys tend to collect responses to current issues mainly from boorish ignoramuses who need someplace to blow wind. Well, The Turkey, being a boorish ignoramus, has a place to blow wind right here and blow wind is what he’s going to do.
The issue for today was presumably innocuous: “Are you buying a holiday tree this year? If so, will it be real or artificial? How much will you spend?” This was the political correctness straw that broke the Turkey’s back, and about it I shall now blow appropriately hot breezes through this chilly forum.
