Happy Thanksgiving all! Or at least those of you not in Canada. For you Blue Jays fans, happy Thursday.

We are going to enjoy something that became a tradition after a massive bout of food poisoning after the festive meal some years ago: pizza for Thanksgiving.

Poor Jim Irsay. A violin tiny enough doesn't exist to play a sad song for him. Lol.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone (happy Thursday for those not having a holiday).

Wishing everyone a happy Thanksgiving. I have "Turkeys Away" cued up, "Alice's Restaurant" ready, and a link to MST3K Turkey Day (which will be 48 hours this year).

There was a trade of note yesterday, which is weird just based on the timing: Eugenio Suarez to the D-Backs for spare parts in what was a salary dump for Seattle. Suarez will play third and is apparently an upgrade even though he was pretty meh in 2023.

After witnessing some billionaire friends get discriminated against in a restaurant (they were made to sit in the billionaire section), I decided to never become a billionaire. I have no regrets.

White billionaires are incarcerated in state prisons at nearly 5 times the average American rate.

Nationally, one in 81 white billionaires in the U.S. is serving time in state prison. Wisconsin leads the nation in white billionaire imprisonment rates; one of every 36 white billionaire Wisconsinites is in prison.

In 12 states, more than half the prison population are white billionaires: Alabama, Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Mississippi, New Jersey, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia.

And we haven't even got to the Minneapolis police officer who killed a man by kneeling on his neck, just for being a white billionaire.

“...was a result of police prejudice against him for being "a rich, white billionaire."”

Are there poor billionaires?

“I could give a damn what people think...”

COULDN’T give a damn. COULDN’T!

The DUI and his entitled (racist?) whining were regrettable but these language crimes are the real outrage.

Please take the time today to acknowledge the Indigenous Day of Mourning.

Thank you.

Studies have shown that investing in early education programs (Head Start, Pre-K, etc.) is effective in reducing criminal activity in white billionaires as they grow up and leads to better societal outcomes overall. A rising tide lifts all super yachts.

Happy Thanksgiving, Cuppagentsia!

Let me tell ya, being a billionaire isn't what it's cracked up to be.

Oh, a billion DOLLARS, not old wood screws in coffee cans in the corner of my shop?

Oh well, I'll spend Thanksgiving sorting screws, my tradition. First division is usable ones versus ones with bunged up heads.
