Sitting around on another pandemic Friday night thinking about the past, the future and the meaning of it all? It's the perfect time to buy a ticket to Songs of Good Cheer. Come sing with us.

Megan Crepeau (aka ) is a force of nature. Her fierce (and yet somehow good-natured) fight for her colleagues leaves me and many others grateful and awed. I'd tell her to get some rest, but she probably won't.

Please tell me that my favorite radio network didn't just promote an upcoming story on "jockeying" for the 2024 presidential race. Could we get the new guy in office first?

No matter what show I'm watching lately--The Queen's Gambit, Schitt's Creek, The Crown, whatever--a little voice in my brain says, "Why aren't they wearing masks?" Is it just me?

Do you remember your first Thanksgiving at the adults' table? While the other kids were corralled at the kids' table? This was a highlight of my life. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone, wherever your table may be.

Defying the experts' guidelines on Thanksgiving travel and guidelines is not an act of bravery.

Chicago’s public health chief write rhymes. And keeps a gratitude journal. And will spend part of Thanksgiving catching up on COVID reading. We owe her and her team a thank-you. Today’s column.
