Today Writer's Almanac points out that it is the birthday of Nelson Algren who was born in 1909.  In 1956, he published, A Walk on the Wild Side. In it, he wrote: "When we get more houses than we can live in, more cars than we can ride in, more food than we can eat ourselves, the only way of getting richer is by cutting off those who don't have enough."

Mitt Romney ran for president, a man with more houses than he could live in and more cars than he could drive, and what did he run on?  And he lost.    Today is a day to give thanks for that.
