I’m tempted pursue this same thing with FaceBook posts, but, alas, I can’t. I do run a business and, if I followed the English horrors of FB, that would be all I could do! (My guess is that the internet could not be developed until Americans were sufficiently dumbed-down….)
But, let me share one with you: I live in Texas. This grandson lives in Illinois. Here’s his post–and my reply–from 11/20/12 ( http://www.facebook.com/YungHoppy ):

Happy Thanksgiving 2012, Folks!
