Happy Thanksgiving: May Your Turkey Not Be Mummified

To my American readers: Happy Thanksgiving. May your turkey not turn out mummified, like this fowl of some sort on a platter from an Egyptian tomb which the Oriental Institute at the University of Chicago posted as their Thanksgiving greeting.

Since it's a four-day holiday weekend here I will not be posting much, but events may require an occasional comment. In the meantime, let me also offer, a few days in advance,‘Ashura greetings to Shi‘ite readers and others.
