I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. It was a very small and low-key event here, but that’s the way I like it. More leftovers. Speaking of that, I have a boilerplate post-Thanksgiving cartoon from 1999. Have you ever stopped to think that if Ben, from the movie The Graduate, had followed the advice of that clueless old fogey (“Plastics!”), he and Elaine might be retired to their own private island with a grounds crew to dispose of the water bottles and six-pack rings and fishing line that wash up daily on their beach. No, you probably haven’t ever stopped to think that, have you?
