The [Thanksgiving] Papers

We're gonna start the holiday weekend a bit early here at Beachwood HQ. We do have a few new posts on tap for the next few days, but the Papers will not appear again until Monday. I will, however, post at Division Street on the latest political developments.

In the meantime, let's take a look back at some of the turkey time highlights from Beachwood from the last two years. I think you'll agree they're timeless.

* The [Thanksgiving] Papers 2006: The Pilgrims had no buckles. And turkeys can't fly. By Steve Rhodes.

* The [Thanksgiving] Papers 2007: Not even Whole Foods carries fresh praying mantis. (A Thanksgiving Poem for Children on the Subject of Gluttony). By Bethany Lankin.

* What I Watched Last Night: Giving thanks to the bounty that is bad TV. By Patrick Bataillon.

* Go Iraq: How to get the hell out of Iraq, as determined by the Pentagon and the Beachwood. By The Beachwood Study Group.

* Message to Cubs: Grow Your Own: The signing of Alfonso Soriano will do nothing to solve the Cubs' problems. By Don Jacobson.

* Devin Hester's Other Ridiculous Ways: He believes you should put money in bonds right now. By The Beachwood Ridiculous Affairs Desk.

* Meet the Hawkies: How ace Cubs marketer John McDonough will make the Blackhawks lovable. By The Beachwood Sports Marketing Affairs Desk.

* Booklist: A Beachwood Gift Guide: A gift guide produced by the Beachwood Book Lab. By M. L. Van Valkenburgh.
