Who doesn't, right?

I salute Advocate staffers Aprill Brandon, Frank Tilley and Bill Clough who all made the lives of our readers a little brighter the past couple of days. If you missed their recent contributions, I encourage you to take a look. The time you spend will be well worth it.

Aprill took a routine annual assignment on Black Friday and turned it into an instant classic. Be sure to read to the end where she describes tired shopper Luke Stevens.

While you're there, be sure to click on photo editor Frank Tilley's audio slide show set to the William Tell Overture. If you didn't brave the pre-dawn hours of Black Friday, you'll be thankful after viewing this.

For a break from all the commercial aspects of the season, click on multimedia news director Bill Clough's essay on autumn. It's truly magical.

Happy Thanksgiving. I'm thankful to work with so many talented and dedicated people.
