Thanksgiving in Tennessee

As some of you know, Abu Muqawama always takes time out of his day to read the police blotter from his local newspaper back home in East Tennessee. This is what he's used to:

At Freedom Homes on Boy Scout Road, a thief got into the rear door of a mobile home.

The burglar made off with a 42-inch Sony plasma TV.

Yeah. That kind of stuff. Only today, this was the last item in the report:

On Carr Street, Debra Robinson and her boyfriend, Michael McKibbin fussed because she did not plan to cook a Thanksgiving dinner.

Officer Jeff Lee Gadd patched things up by "explaining the true meaning of the holidays."

You can't make this stuff up, folks. God Bless America.
