The 2016 Al Smith Dinner, a HUGE annual New York city fundraiser for Catholic causes (started in 1945), was ‘one for the ages’ with both presidential candidates, Hillary Clinton & Donald Trump, delivering speeches (or ‘roasts’ to be more accurate) — as is a longstanding custom on election years.

This year, i.e., 2017, the keynote speaker was House Speaker, Paul Ryan, a practicing Catholic from Wisconsin, his father of Irish descent. Ryan, as was to be expected, did make some jokes at the expense of Trump. Whether he cleared them with Trump ahead of the dinner has yet to be established. We will have to see if Trump reacts.

But, here is the whole story — so to speak, video and transcript.

Why is the U.S. Thanksgiving celebrated on a Thursday rather than what would be the more logical Friday? 


Think first, then research, then THINK again. Think for the pleasure of thinking.


Yesterday’s ‘Think’: Al Smith (1873 – 1944) was Governor of New York four times from 1904 to 1928, and the first Catholic U.S. presidential candidate (as a Democrat, in 1928). The ‘dinner’ began in 1945.
