A Cincinnati Thanksgiving

I can’t tell you how many people, when hearing I’m from Cincinnati (after they mention the chili) start singing the WKRP theme. I’ve discussed this episode with several people this week, in particular @AmandaBlum and @700BillReinhart, so I figured I would link to it. “As […]
