Thanksgiving Schedule and Comments Holiday

Starting today through next Monday, we are reducing our daily posting level. Today we will have three rather than four posts plus Links and Water Cooler. Thanksgiving Day and Friday, we will have only Links and two posts. Lambert and I could really use the break given the IT mess at the site, and Jerri has had some personal issues relieve her temporarily from duty.

Since our comments DJ Jules is also taking some time off, and we missed taking our Labor Day one-week comments holiday, we are also having a sort-of comments break. We’ll keep them on for Links but likely turn them off for all other posts unless Lambert gets the energy to put on his yellow waders for the latest Obama biography over the weekend.

In the mean time, for those of you who observe it, enjoy your Thanksgiving! It happens to coincide with my mother’s 93rd birthday.

    Agreed with PlutoniumKun above. Enjoy the holiday. It might be the last “normal” holiday season for a while.
    Stay safe!
    [Happy birthday to Mom.]

    Have a great holiday everyone. It’s been a long year. And we should wish the guys & gals at NC a much deserved break with time to recharge their batteries, especially after the unwelcome IT problems. I don’t see how they do it all. And like ambrit, happy birthday to mum on the 72nd anniversary of her 21st birthday (which is how I learned to count women’s birthdays).

    I know I am thankful every day for Naked Capitalism, and grateful for the unceasing quantity and quality of the work Yves, Lambert, Jerri-Lynn, Jules and others put into it. Many happy returns to Yves’ mother!
    P.S. Spectacular photo!

    Happy Thanksgiving to those who bring us Naked Capitalism each day.

    Happy birthday to the Mom of Yves Smith. All the best to her.

    Happy Thanksgiving to fellow commenters and groundlings who make the comments section worth reading each day. [And make this the only site where I comment, given that the rest are spewing geysers of the national id.]

    Happy Thanksgiving to everyone, and esp. to all those wonderful people who make NC a must-read daily. IMHO, you never have to apologize or explain why something happens or not, but it is warmly appreciated. And besides, a respite from our well-honed and -researched opinions and feedback would always we welcomed! Y’all take care…and all the best.
