Here we are wrapping up Thanksgiving 2021 and I felt the need to do some reflecting on this day we Americans celebrate the fourth Thursday in November every year. Of course, reflecting on this day is nothing unusual after you have stuffed your gullet with turkey that is much more expensive than last year (Thanks, Joe Biden!) but I have a bit of a different perspective, I suppose.

What am I thankful for? A ton of things, but let me focus on something that has been plaguing this country I love for a moment.

I have an example from my colleague Brandon Morse who wrote this, yesterday: Comedy Is Subjective…but Woke Comedy Is Objectively Not Funny

I realize there are brands of comedy out there that people don’t find funny for one reason or another. Being someone who saw and experienced dark things as
