... I'm not feeling swindled. I'm feeling thankful. It's Thanksgiving!
"Café," here at the Althouse blog, signifies an open thread in the comments. Write about what you like. And if you enjoy hanging out here, you can let me know by using this Amazon link as you go about your Christmas shopping, your Thanksgiving shopping, your other holiday shopping, and your nonholiday shopping. Entering Amazon through that link — which is always at the top of the page under the blog's title at the words "Shop Amazon" — will send me a commission on whatever you buy there before you click away. I'm heading into a 9th year of solo blogging, 365 days a year, without even a single missed day, and the Amazon action really is encouraging. It's so not a swindle, since you only get things you want and you pay nothing extra for what I experience as a gesture of encouragement.
