William S. Burroughs - Thanksgiving Prayer
While technically this is a "Thanksgiving Prayer", this piece by Burroughs really cuts to the dark heart of this holiday. There are a lot of great things about this country, but there is also a really dark aspect to our history. Leave it to the deviant gentleman junkie to pick at the bloody flag that covers the foul smelling wound that America won't disinfect.
Mission accomplished, Dr. Benway.
