Terror and Thanksgiving

From time to time I hear people complain that Muslims do not denounce terrorists enough. Personally, I see and hear them denouncing all over the place practically all the time. It must depend on where you hang out, and what you read I guess.

I just saw this article about British Muslims who took out a full page ad denouncing the Paris attack. I love the picture of the boy at the beginning of the piece. If you tweet, search on #NotInMyName.

Thanksgiving is my day of rest but I often end up working because I love what I do, and for some reason, I love doing it even more on holidays!

Here are people lined up to get their turkeys at a butcher on Bleecker Street. Although that place has been a butcher shop going back to 1900, it’s been O. Ottomanelli & Sons since the 1940’s. It’s very popular, but I cry for the turkeys of course. They are such a friendly, social animal.
