I’m on the road, and my blogging will be light in the next few days.
I’ll probably eat turkey (the fowl, not the country). May PETA forgive me for this imposition.

And hey, if you think slaughtering turkeys poses ethical issues, I suggest a post that Glenn linked which asks a seemingly simple question:
Did Stalin commit genocide?
He slaughtered the Kulaks, but because they were an economic class (essentially the middle class), it doesn’t “count” as genocide. That’s because Stalin helped define genocide, No, seriously:

Genocide is the deliberate and systematic destruction, in whole or in part, of an ethnic, racial, religious, or national group.
[…]
Because of the influence of Joseph Stalin, this definition of genocide under international law does not include political groups.

Which means the Khmer Rouge didn’t commit genocide, natch.
I’d write more, but I’m running late.
(No time to debate trollish questions such as whether certain drugs can be genocidal.)
