This is America Charlie Brown, The Mayflower Voyagers

One of my favorite Peanuts holiday specials. Charlie Brown and the gang play Pilgrim children in this re-enactment of the Mayflower voyage and the first Thanksgiving. I highly recommend this one for children. It's also nice to see something from Hollywood that's pro Western civilization.

The most surprising part is that they actually talked about the suffering and death among those who came over. When I first saw it I was expecting the Peanuts world where the only pain is from a football being pulled away at the last minute.

Saw it on ABC yesterday. Charles Schultz was one talented guy.

Indeed. Also, it’s rare for a Peanuts special where they actually show adults and those adults don’t sound like trombones when they speak.

• In 1978, we took the RV and the kids up to Plymouth to see my wife’s sister who lived there at the time. We visited Plymouth Plantation. During the tour, I was struck by the presence of fortified guard shacks in the town square and asked the guide if they were a last line of defense for the citizens there if trouble with the natives spilled into the compound. He told us that they were for the control of the FOOD RIOTS which broke out those first few winters — BEFORE they wisely abandoned their clearly failed experiment with collectivism — before Marx was even born.

Seems each generation or so we must relearn the hard lessons of history.

OBOWMA will teach us the next round of such lessons. I suspect they will be BITTER ones indeed.

Have a wonderful day.
