Once upon a time, in the town of Smoky Hills, there lived a turkey. Now Tom the Turkey and his wife, Teresa, weren’t necessarily what you’d call ordinary, but none the less, they were turkeys.
One bright, sunny and extremely cold Thanksgiving Teresa Turkey squawked to her husband, “Tom!” Her voice cracked like a whip through the crisp morning air. “Tom, get up this instant. Don’t make me get the coffee pot.”
“All right, all right, I’m getting up,” Tom Turkey mumbled sleepily. “Good!” Mrs. Turkey snapped. “I don’t have much patience this morning and I need that tamoble now!” (A tamoble is a tomato beetle that the Turkeys eat on Thanksgiving).
Bang! Bang! In the distance hunters’ guns went off. The Turkeys dove under the bed. The Turkeys became frightened. “I think we found a good one here,” a deep voice said.
“Yes, Teresa will be very happy.” The Turkeys were very surprised! The hunters were none other than Thomas and Joe who were hunting a tamobile for them. “Thanks, Thomas! Thanks, Joe!” the Turkeys called. Thanksgiving was a success in Smoky Hills!

from the News and Oberserver:
Sen. John Edwards hinted on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” Tuesday night that he was close to entering the 2008 presidential race, and Democrats close to the former North Carolina senator said he could make it official next month.
Stewart, the comedian and host of the popular Comedy Central network show, pushed Edwards to make an announcement, noting that Edwards had tipped his plans on the same show in 2003.
“Actually, I do have an announcement,” Edwards said. “Just between us. If people go to my Web site, JohnEdwards.com, over the next few weeks, they may see something new and exciting.”
Cracked Stewart: “Do you have a shower webcam?”
The Edwards campaign wouldn’t comment any further. But Edwards is widely expected to enter the race in December, filing the campaign committee papers so he can start raising money.
Although no final decision has been made, Edwards will likely set up his national campaign headquarters in Chapel Hill, near his new home.
In 2004, it was in West Raleigh and at its peak had a campaign staff of more than 60 people.
Edwards, meanwhile, was studio-hopping in Manhattan plugging his new book, “Home: The Blueprints of Our Lives.”
Besides “The Daily Show,” Edwards was on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” PBS’ “The Charlie Rose Show,” Fox News’ “Hannity & Colmes” and NPR’s “Fresh Air.” Today he is scheduled to be on CNN’s Wolf Blitzer program. On Friday, he will be on CBS’ “Late Show with David Letterman” and next Wednesday he will be on Martha Stewart’s syndicated TV program.
He is also on a multi-city book tour that will include a stop in Raleigh on Monday.
