"Let us count the ways we are Thankful to live in New York, the greatest city in the world: We are thankful that we can find any type of food we desire within a five-minute walk of our homes. We are thankful that most of us don't need cars. We are thankful that we don't care about a candidate's color, religion or ethnicity -- or those of his spouse or family -- when we cast our votes, only that we think he or she can do the best job for us. We are thankful that we live in a city where you are respected, not mocked, for being literate and believing in science."
