Thanksgiving morning I was wondering how many new American families were basting a turkey for the first time in their adopted land. Happy to be here after their trek. Made me smile.

More than 200 strangers invited them to dinner.

However well they otherwise assimilate, at least they'll soon be as fat as Americans.

I've met so many immigrants - my mother included - who talk about the first time they baked a Thanksgiving turkey and how they didn't know to take out the plastic bag of gizzards (or whatever the hell they're called) and finding it when they cut into it.

So I wonder how many new Americans are like "why the fark is there a plastic bag in here?" today.

A celebration of new arrivals to the new world?  Preposterous idea.

"So, truth be told, my mom was like this as well," Lesser said. "If anyone needed a place for Thanksgiving, and they need a place to go, my mom would call me up - because my mom used to volunteer as a senior citizen at the Brookline senior citizen home..."

I believe this is also how Wilford Brimley broke into hollywood

Harvard Med School student is not your typical immigrant.
