We wish everyone a happy and peaceful holiday.
Slaw takes a bit of a break at this time of year, so posting will be slow and not at all on December 25 and 26 and January 1. Otherwise, the regular Today features and our columns will be published as usual.
This is a good occasion to thank all of you on behalf of our bloggers and columnists for reading Slaw. Our entries are our gifts, and to find you like them pleases us greatly.
