Slice: My Thanksgiving In Jail

When city editor Jon Kamman asked if I had any Thanksgiving plans, I tried to act like I didn't see what was coming. But I knew. He realized I had no family in Arizona. And he was about to invite me to his house for the holiday, which was just a couple of days away. What a guy. Wasn't that thoughtful? No, I said. No plans. Good, he said. “We need someone to work Thanksgiving.” Oh. This was about 30 years ago. But the memory still makes me shake my head/Paul Turner, The Slice blog. More here.

Question: Do you mind working holidays?
