5:07 (4:52) About right for the laptop - maybe even a little fast.

MSF - I know I have signed Chsnge.org for this and some other petitions as well. Will anyone be held to account? Probably some scapegoats, yes. Any real culprits, probably not.

Turkey - I do not remember this custom from my childhood, or teens, or military service. So I looked it up. And no danged wonder. It's a George H. W. Bush invention. I for one would happily do without it, but apparently the turkey lobby has too much clout (who knew?)

Universe - It certainly looks like a PSA.

Correction Nov. 25, 2015

A previous version of this story stated that "Cheese" was the only pardoned turkey still alive. "Courage," the turkey pardoned in 2009 by President Obama, is alive and well, "living comfortably backstage at the Circle D Ranch" at Disneyland in California, according to a spokesperson.

Good to hear you're taking good care of yourself, Lynn, by sleeping in and indulging in some tasty buns. The sound delicious.

The New Yorker/Common Dreams/ Foreign Policy: The accumulation of "human error" leading up to the bombing of the hospital run by Doctors without Borders is staggering and in fact unbelievable. Flying in without communication, bombing with only a oral description of the target building and then bombing for more than an hour? I'm not buying it as a layman and I doubt whether anyone versed in military protocol buys into it. It sounds too much like a cover up, and a shoddy one at that. The only thing for it is an independent investigation, as it should have been right from the start. The fact that it wasn't, even though it was demanded by Doctors Without Borders and others, makes it all the more suspicious. By now the Pentagon knows where all the weaknesses are in the story and will have filled in all the gaps and smoothed it over.
However, this will all soon be forgotten as everyone focuses on new heavy bombing of Syria after the Paris attacks and the quarrel over Turkey shooting down a Russian fighter. Such is war.

You Tube: This particular folklore is a little too quaint for my taste.

My Universe: It's a dog's life, isn't it.

NYer/CD/MSF: I already had signed this petition, media has been very quiet over this tragedy, hardly anything now.

YouTube: Good for the turkey, however, it's a shame that folks that are incarcerated in prison can't be handed a pardon. Now that would be a great gesture.

My Universe: People food upsets my dog's stomach. My cat loves food from the table. PSA indeed.

It's cold and rainy here. A perfect day to read my book. Enjoy your day, Thanks, Lynn.

Lake geranium urn puzzle time; 5:13. Hey that's not fair! My friend's cat knocked Buddah off the fireplace when I was solving the puzzle. She looked pretty guilty hanging off the mantle too!

RIP patients of Medicins Sans Frontieres. That's evil.

In plain words:strongly reminding of IDF procedures in cases like that, cover up, lying, attempt to save their asses.. shame! They had their reasons for NOT joining the ICC, signing the Rome statute. US= not a constitutional democracy, sorry.

Doctors Without Borders....Two words......WAR CRIME. Doubt they will be held accountable....like TheBush Crime Family has been held accountable.....good luck with that. They never punish the true perps, which are the upper echelon, no. They will throw the underlings under the bus and that is supposed to silence the rest of us.

Already signed the petition and re-shared it again.

Poor pupper, I agree, should be a PSA.
