onBeing: The White House Turkey
On November 20, 2007, President Bush gave an official pardon to two turkeys, May and Flower, for the Thanksgiving holiday. I had a chance to interview May in his posh digs at the Hotel Washington near the White House in downtown D.C. He was more photogenic than I expected, well-mannered, and an overall lovely turkey. Glad he agreed to the interview, glad he was pardoned.
