It's an annual rite in Seattle: 'Tis the season to piss on a holiday. One year it was King County discouraging employees from using the phrase "Merry Christmas" because it was not religiously neutral. Last year it was Port of Seattle Scrooges removing Christmas trees at Sea-Tac Airport. This year, we're off to an early start. The Seattle School District sent a widely publicized note to parents about the "myth" that Thanksgiving is a "happy time." Indeed not, if you're Native American, says the district – it's a day of "mourning." Another reason to feel bad this Thanksgiving: Your favorite foods may not be local enough. Did you know your cranberries could still have a carbon footprint the size of Bigfoot's? And don't even think about cinnamon and nutmeg! At least we know one thing about Thanksgiving: Puritans are still dishing up big helpings of guilt.
