Thanksgiving With An Edge

A little history lesson via one of the greats;  E.E. Cummings:

In 1935, Cummings penned and attempted to get published a book of poetry. It was turned down by fourteen publishers. With his mother’s help, he self-published the work, which he titled “No Thanks;” a retort to all who rejected his work, as indicated by the dedication to them. His orthography is fittingly fashioned in the shape of an urn.

A personal declaration of thanks on Thanksgiving 2014:

I give thanks that I have not done anything this rash…yet.
