Thanksgiving sprung up on me this year, and I didn’t even have the time to wish you all a happy holiday before being whisked away by my amazing sister (and wonderful cook) and put in front of a Gargantuan meal. So, happy belated Thanksgiving to you all, and welcome back. This week will be short for me, as I get ready to go to New York for a quick visit to family and friends. I’ll also be on a panel about blogs, more about which perhaps a bit later this week. Until then, you can read the usual medley of links, commentary, reviews, rants, and recommendations.
