Happy Thanksgiving

HAPPY THANKSGIVING…. Just a quick housekeeping note for readers checking in today. I’ll be around, and will check in if something important comes up, but I don’t expect to have much in the way of content today. I’ll be back tomorrow morning.

Also, in light of the holiday, I thought I’d take a moment to share my thanks to all of you. I appreciate your interest, support, and encouragement, and wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving.

As for the news of the day, the White House issued President Obama’s weekly address this morning, pointing to what will hopefully be a better year ahead.
