In our last edition, we told you where you can go to join in a THANKSGIVING POTLUCK FEAST. We also gave you the info to watch "The Pilgrims," from the PBS series "The American Experience," FREE on-demand online for the next few days.
The latter gets more important when you see how utterly bleak TV's offerings are today. Unless you have the MGM movie channel and can watch "Alice's Restaurant" (10:20 am-12:30 pm Pacific) you'll need to find that comedic ballad on YouTube to observe Folk-Americana music's most enduring Thanksgiving tradition of the past half-century.
Lots of people will take refuge in TV in an effort to avoid conversations with the very people they invited to visit to share Thanksgiving. But it ain't gonna be that easy.
TV for Thanksgiving is all hoopla over millionaire football players on teams owned by billionaire owners who cravenly abandon fans as they move "their" teams from city to city to maximize their personal profits.
Oh, and everything else on TV today is at its prostituting worst as the media maximizes itself as a delivery system for advertising to make you want to spend all your money on crap you don't need at tomorrow's BLACK FRIDAY or the impending CYBER MONDAY. Because you just aren't cool enough unless you own the right trendy gizmos, designer swag, and small screen cyberspying-tracking-device whozits, gizmos, and whatnots.
