New Patreon Post

Hello everybody! I am just reminding you that I have some writing up on Patreon, including this month’s exploring post on the Yearly Turkey Pardon. I look at both how old/new the tradition is, its origins, and how it was kind of used to dodge an important question about a scandal. You can sign up for Patreon here and help me out! Thanks so much!

Preview: So by now, we are all sort of used to this odd event wherein most years the President does a short photo op and “pardons” a turkey. Said turkey is then sent to a petting zoo where it usually dies within a short period of time because turkeys are now bred for meat, not to just roam free… and oh sorry, did I already start going down a dark path?
