To Our Readers:
It’s been a full ten days since we’ve last posted to Friarside Chats. We’re sure you’ve felt the pre-holiday heat as well. The amount of school work piled on before breaks makes it hard to find time to eat or sleep, and maintaining a commentary blog on top of it all proved nearly impossible. But hey, Providence College- we made it!
In this ten day hiatus, there’s been much to talk about. There’s been a struggle and ceasefire between Israel and Hamas. Rumors have been flying about cabinet appointments for the second Obama administration. In an appeal to consumers, stores have decided to open for Black Friday on Thanksgiving Day itself; is this worker abuse?
This Thanksgiving, we would like to thank our readers for their support of and interest in this developing project. We’re thankful for many hundreds of readers who have viewed our blog multiple thousands of times. We thank you for agreeing and for disagreeing. We are thankful for the opportunity to share our thoughts and to hear yours.
We hope that you’ll stay Friarside as we resume the chat. Join in with comments! Share with friends! Most importantly though, we wish you and your families a wonderful Thanksgiving. See you in Providence on Monday!
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Friarside Chats!
