“For the Truth the Turkey is in Comparison a much more respectable Bird, and withal a true original Native of America… He is besides, though a little vain & silly, a Bird of Courage, and would not hesitate to attack a Grenadier of the British Guards who should presume to invade his Farm Yard with a red Coat on.”
As faculty and students depart campus for the [long] weekend, we’d like to wish you all a very happy Thanksgiving. We hope your holiday is peaceful and relaxing.
“I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual.” – Henry David Thoreau

To all of you, a very happy Thanksgiving from the AMS :: ATX team.
“The different characters of the trees appear better now, when their leaves, so to speak, are ripe, than at any other season; than in the winter, for instance, when they are little remarkable, and almost uniformly gray or brown, or in the spring and summer, when they are undistinguishably green…. It is with leaves as with fruits and woods, animals and men: when they are mature, their different characters appear.” -Henry David Thoreau, “Autumn,” September 30, 1851
