I'm pretty sure the moment for giving thanks officially expired some time last night, evaporating in the beer-and-turkey fart clouds rising from all the awful greed fests lined up outside big box stores up and down 82nd Avenue. (And downtown. And Jantzen Beach.)
But this video below—and this article linked here—remind me I ought to issue one more holiday benediction. I'm thankful for our friends at Street Roots. They make a good newspaper. They offer a strong, willing hand up to those ready to grab onto it. And they speak up, and speak to power, on issues some of us would rather just banish with a swing of the nightstick.
Spend a few minutes with Raymond, and you'll understand.
