Tensions will apparently be running high this year at Thanksgiving. Weblogs as varied as the Washington Free Beacon and VOX DOT COM are offering guides on how to get through Turkey Day without brutally murdering your closest kin for daring to suggest that immigrants speak English, or whatever.

As the Free Beacon‘s film critic, I have to keep my ear to the ground about hot news tips you, our loyal readers, might be interested in. And I know of no one (well, almost no one) who prompts quite as much interest from Free Beacon fans as one Alexandra Daddario. Needless to say, I was pretty excited to see that the rumors are true!
I’ve been saying it for years, but now the (Spanish) mainstream media is finally acknowledging the truth: Biased headline here from Mashable, to be quite honest: There’s no “confusion.” Al Qaeda is just a modern-day offshoot of that band of terrorists that tried to take over a galaxy far away long ago.

Rumors and blind items had been swirling about for the last few weeks in the gutter press (you know, where you find the Free Beacon) about a major A-list actor with HIV.
