THANKSGIVING….Is there a Thanksgiving equivalent of Scrooge? I dunno. But if there isn’t, Tom Friedman is now it.

But hey, when the man’s right, the man’s right. I hope this means he’s turning over a new leaf.

And with that, I’m off. Thanksgiving #1 is tonight at my mother’s house, and then we’re out to the desert tomorrow followed by Thanksgiving #2 on Saturday with my father-in-law. And shortly after that, it’s USC vs. Notre Dame ? and we will all be rooting for the Cardinal and Gold, right? Right?

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. Do something nice for someone today.

BY THE WAY: I strongly recommend that you not follow this advice from CNN’s so-called “nutritionists.” Sheesh.
