I live in Oregon. My Thanksgiving is likely to be just my wife and me eating either a vegan roast or, if we’re too lazy to turn the oven on (and that’s a distinct possibility), perhaps takeout Thai food.

But if we were going to have lots of people over (which, again, would be a bad idea), I really wouldn’t worry that the gendarmes might hie to our homestead and bash in our door with a battering ram.

Also, I follow the news pretty closely, and I don’t recall Gov. Kate Brown legalizing rioting and looting — in Portland or anywhere else. Then again, I’ve only lived here for five years. Maybe that’s part of some obsolete, antediluvian law that no one pays attention to anymore — like the law about not dressing a llama in alpaca clothes or going trick-or-treating in nothing but Spider-Man Underoos.

Anyway, that’s all just a modest digression from this Giza pyramid of guano:
