If you really insist on being here today (as opposed to having fun), I have four pieces of advice:
1. Read what I wrote here yesterday. If nothing else, it’s twice my normal word count.
2. Don’t argue about politics at the table today. You never know who might be a closet troll, and there are too many knives around.
3. Never travel on a bad-weather Thanksgiving, lest you end up like this.
4. Best of all, check out the holiday’s best cartoon, on the cover of The New Yorker. And here’s the story behind it.
