How exactly did the beautiful American wild turkey became a symbol of failure? Because it ended up as roast? Well, we’re going to roast some turkeys this week, and you’re going to be asked to bring some stuffing and side dishes to the feast. The CC gang is going to run pieces on turkeys of all sorts during the week, and we’re going to ask you to nominate your own turkeys for each of the past six decades as well as the present. We’ll start a little later on Monday morning with the 50s, so start mulling it over, but keep your powder dry for now. Let’s just keep in mind that “turkey” is a pretty broad definition, so feel free to call it as you see it. Just be ready to defend your turkey, because you know someone’s going to likely take aim at it.
