Turkey white meat is unappealing; I eat (devour) the back half -- this goes for chickens as well.
White meat is good only for sandwiches.
When I were a lad my mother cooked a turkey once a month. (No, not the same turkey.)
Turkey was great for us; after my dad and I came back from our annual hunting trip(s) we would have moose (or caribou) in all the variations possible: steak, roast, sausage, ground, pot roast - my dad actually made corned moose a couple of years - even he couldn't stand it (800 lbs of moose takes a while to process and eat - we did our own butchering). Caribou was closer to elk, but still generally the same. One year I got a largish black bear on bow and arrow, that was pretty good.
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, navigate a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly.

I think the tradition goes back a few hundred years (see A Christmas Carol), when most people were poor and meat was a treat. That was much the case in my family in the 1950s and early 60s. Most days our meals could not exactly be termed 'hearty', but we generally had a cheap roast on Sundays. At Easter we had chicken, which was a treat in those days, and at Christmas we had turkey, two occasions for feasting. The traditional part has now been so devalued, by multiple Christmas meals in December, that there seems little point in choosing what is essentially a very average meat. However when catering for 12-14 adults it is a good choice.
I don't know if I will miss him, as I felt he was a mean person at his core. His behavior was rooted in meanness and not entertainment. This is why he was finally fired for the last time, and no one would really hire him again. Who wants to work with such negativity.
With that said, he was a radio host icon, and will go down as one of the greats, for good or bad.

Guys, Let us not forget the hundreds of thousands of dollars (maybe millions) Imus spent on kids with cancer at his ranch during the holidays, trying to lift them out of feelings of hopelessness and get them to understand that they still had a purpose in life. He was not all evil, was he?
I really didn’t wanted to this post to go this way and yes in my view you are correct and agree with you on your point in religion...my belief is it’s the biggest con job ever created and that is my belief however if someone chose to believe in any religion or god that doesn’t mean one should insult them any ways...it’s their choice and I would never insult anyone just because they believe in some religion or god. Like I have a choice of not not following any religion other person also have all the right to follow what they think is correct for them.
For most it is not a choice; if someone practices Wicca personally and does not bother others, I not object. But teach children something that is irrational, mentally damaging them, that is something I cannot accept.
There's a difference between attacking people and attacking their delusions. I do not hurt anyone, and call not to a Jihad or Holy War against the infidels; only against their set of outdated beliefs. It is time we put a stop against the murdering in the name of some God.
Use the brains your God gave you, and accept he doesn't exist.
