The birth of the benevolent turkey — a new Thanksgivi­ng tradition

- SERGIO PEÇANHA

Eureka! Here’s an idea:

What if, instead of continuing the bizarre tradition of a president pardoning a turkey for no crime,

... we arranged instead for a turkey to pardon our country for what it does to us sometimes?

From the insurrecti­on and the Afghan withdrawal, to the families at the border, vaccine denial and the “big lie” ...

to sending two Black men to prison for decades for a crime they didn’t commit, while letting a White man get away with killing two people...

Man-o-man.

This year would be a tough one for the benevolent turkey.
