A Writing Prompt: Thanksgiving
Turkeys are innately scary
Okay, here’s the elevator pitch:
In a gesture of humane goodwill, the President pardons the turkey doomed to be eaten for Thanksgiving at the White House. This is despite this turkey having a long criminal record, most of which is supressed because the turkey is under age eighteen. Freed and without continuing substance-abuse treatment and counseling, the turkey commits a heinous crime. Think Ted Bundy crime. Richard Speck crime. The White House is attacked by political opposition as being soft on crime. The turkey is still at large and a nation lives in fear.

In regard to the Story Night contest, how about just voting with “likes”? That way everyone could vote. And it would be easy to see the scores tally as time passes. Would that work?
