From the Editor
It's Thanksgiving...


With the recovery from Hurricane Sandy, the election season and the tough economy, it's no wonder Thanksgiving hasn't led the top of the news with the attention it rightfully deserves (and was there a Halloween this year?). Yet it's in these trying times that recognizing what we have becomes even more important.

I'm especially grateful for close family, friends and respected colleagues and I'll be extra careful to savor every minute of Thanksgiving this year.

Wishing everyone a warm and happy holiday, with many thanks,

Ty Acton
