Some of you are writing in wondering why there have been no new posts since Wednesday evening. The short answer: The fourth Thursday in November is a national holiday in the U.S., famous for its parades, football games, Butterball turkeys and distended human duodenums. (Learn about it here!) We will also be posting on an abbreviated schedule tomorrow. (Translation: We won't be posting much, and we will do so at our leisure.) We look forward to seeing you when we're back in fighting form — er, 5 lbs. heavier — on Monday. [Wikipedia]
