Wisconsin State Journal Weighs Over Four Pounds Thanksgiving Morning

Four pounds and 2 ounces to be precise.

The bulk of the paper are the ads, of course, that are intended to make us think we have something more important to do than celebrate Thanksgiving.  After bringing the paper in from the stoop and weighing it I know my words from a week ago very much apply to how I feel today.

…it is my desire that Americans spend their holiday with family and friends instead of shopping and amassing things. Let us stop trading in home time for mall time and again build up the tradition of why Thanksgiving was established in the first place.
