That good holiday cheer out of the way, I'm fairly certain that, being Fools, many of you haven't yet had a chance to read Wednesday's sincere holiday Drip column, which I personally believe is important only because it addresses charity and, specifically, Fool Charity. So, if you haven't visited the Fool the past few days, please click to Wednesday's column. Every year at this time, we address Fool Charities in the Drip Port, and Wednesday was when we did so this year. If you're in a position to give something to others, even very little, please see how you can help others as a Fool:
Wednesday's Thanksgiving Column
During this shortened week, we had only two other columns. I wrote about my favorite food and beverage company on a subjective basis (see Tuesday), and George ran the numbers on Scientific-Atlanta (NYSE: SFA) on Monday.
To avoid more "reading backlog" for Fools who are partaking in the holiday and have not signed on for a few days, today's column will end right about now. The Fool appeared on the stage briefly today, donning bright and cheerful colors, and now the curtain is beginning to descend on him. "Thank you, all!" he says. "Have a great weekend, and... oh, wait!"
The curtain rises again. The lights brighten.
"One more thing. We'll be sending this month's $100 investment to Mellon Bank (NYSE: MEL) on Monday. Thank you, now. And have a great weekend!"
The motley curtain falls. The lights fade.
Until next week, the Fools clear the theater.
