NEWS

Temperatures were forecast to rise into the mid-40s by Wednesday morning in the Baltimore area as the rain continues, but gusty winds and possible snowflakes could still blow in by the afternoon to again slow those traveling for the Thanksgiving holiday. Snow was piling up in Western Maryland and across Pennsylvania on Tuesday, with travel to the Northeast expected to be treacherous into Thanksgiving Day as the storm moves up the East Coast. Those traveling by air also faced problems, with some delays and cancellations nationwide Tuesday.

On a day that is supposed to bring families together, this dish has a tendency to push them apart. I am talking about cranberries, those tart little berries that everyone feels obligated to serve in some form on Thanksgiving Day. I have nothing against cranberries. I like them, as long as they're fixed the "right way." That means with fresh horseradish, grated ginger, minced garlic and a can of cranberry jelly. This produces a chutney that has zest, fruit and presence.

What's a little fog and drizzle to football players who sometimes play in snow, sleet and driving rain? When you've been playing the same pickup game on Thanksgiving Day for 40 years, you're not about to let a mere case of nasty weather ruin an honored tradition. Most of the mud-spattered players, middle-aged and beyond, who were assembled Thursday on a sodden field in northwest Baltimore County graduated from Pikesville Senior High School around 1970 (before it dropped the "Senior")

The decision by Giant Food stores to be open for business on Thanksgiving Day is further addition to the sense of tedium and monotony that pervades these times. All days are the same now. Is there a need for a calendar at all? Monday could be Saturday, Friday is nothing less than Wednesday. Holidays are arranged ++ for the convenience of sales, not for celebration.A dateline in this newspaper is useful only for informing that this is the day for garbage collection.The days of the week have become worth only the value of seven now. Once they were implicit divisors in our social nature.

As most Americans doze off in front of the TV after a few too many helpings of turkey and pumpkin pie this Thanksgiving, some 20 million others will be heading out to work. Called on by their employers to work on the holiday, most feel they cannot say no - they need the money or fear reprisal. Working on Thanksgiving and other holidays is not new, but the numbers of Americans doing so is climbing, and this trend is at least as much about dwindling workers' rights as it is about depressed wages.

SEVILLE, Spain - Here, the orange trees are the only things changing color as autumn takes its hold. The palmeras and the jasmine vines that climb the wall outside my apartment - and fill the patio below with an inimitable scent - are alive and will flourish well into winter. The cypress trees in the gorgeous royal gardens of Alcázar, silent witnesses to endearing displays of Spanish affection, have been that same dusty green for dozens, if not hundreds, of years and won't start changing now. But it's not the fall colors I miss while I'm spending this semester in Spain, even though not a thing could compare with seeing the Blue Ridge Mountains ablaze with autumn.
