HOLLYWOOD – God Bless America, and how’s everybody?
The Department of Transportation warned Tuesday this year’s Thanksgiving weekend travel volume will be the heaviest in U.S. history. I plan to celebrate an old fashioned Thanksgiving Day. I’m going to invite my neighbors over for an enormous feast, and then kill them and take their land.
The United Nations voted to condemn the U.S. government for its embargo on trade with Cuba which is having a devastating effect on the island’s economy. It’s pretty bad. Cuba is reporting a shortage of beer and condoms, which has pretty much put Saturday night on hold until further notice.

The L.A. Times called for a more humane attitude toward the migrant caravans heading for the U.S. border. It fell on deaf ears. Last week, some teachers in Idaho got in trouble when they dressed up for a Halloween school party as Trump’s border wall and the Latino students just can’t get over it.
