What Are People Thankful For?

After a short silence, I have decided to return for a day to ponder this week's stories in light of the Thanksgiving day holiday. So, as I thought about what people might be thankful for, I came up with a few that some of you might find amusing:

Ron Artest is thankful that he now gets the time off he wanted to promote his rap album.
John Green is thankful that Artest punched the wrong guy.
Hillary Clinton is thankful that John Kerry lost so that she might be able to experience her own major, crushing defeat in 2008.
Bill Clinton is thankful that his LIE-brary is now open in Arkansas.
Dan Rather is thankful that his lies have earned him early retirement.
Arlen Specter is thankful that the Republicans didn't think he lied when he appeared before the Judiciary Committee to beg for the chairmanship.
The insurgents in Fallujah are thankful that they no longer have to try to occupy that city. The insurgents in other parts of Iraq are thankful that they now know what to expect when it's their turn to be kicked out.
Scott Peterson is thankful that he will finally get to live the bachelor life he has always wanted - plenty of male friendship and cable T.V.
Viacom is thankful that they are still able to afford cable T.V. after the payout they just made to the FCC.
And finally, I am thankful that I have cable T.V. so I can make fun of all the top stories of the week in the comfort of my own apartment.


But seriously, remember to be thankful this season. Dr. Mohler reminds us that we ought to be thankful to our Creator and John Piper calls us to be thankful for our own flawed lives, as well as those of the great saints of history.

May God Richly Bless You and Your Family This Thanksgiving,
D.R.

About me

Paul was not interested merely in the ethical principles of religion or of ethics. On the contrary, he was interested in the redeeming work of Christ and its effect upon us. His primary interest was in Christian doctrine, and Christian doctrine not merely in its presuppositions but at its centre. -- J. Greshem Machen.
