Happy Thanksgiving

We've said it before, but Thanksgiving is our favorite holiday, for its simplicity and lack of commercialization.

You have to like a holiday where celery is central, even if you don't like celery. (We do.)

Of course, the historical origins are dubious at best, and the political events that followed, over generations, were anything but benign. Still, we can celebrate a day of peace and fellowship. Can't we?

Small World Music will be closed for the day, but back for regular hours on Friday. Ithaca Blog will also be silent for the day.

We believe Ithaca Bakery will be closed, but Gimme Coffee open, if you will be heading out of town, and seeking to coffee up. It is a long way to the next decent coffee.

For interested parties, in this un-sports-crazy town, we believe it will be Seattle over Dallas with the points (13), Tennessee over Detroit (giving 11), and Philly over Arizona, getting 3.

Good luck, and have fun.
