  • It’s getting to be the holiday season. I’ve already got the “Gobbles, the Tasty Turkey” song going through my head.

    Yeah, I know. I’m alone on that one.

    By way of an explanation, I wrote a column last year lamenting the fact there are so few Thanksgiving songs. I think I thought of one last year. So I made up one, to the tune of “Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer.”
