Robert Krulwich asks, “Who brought the turkey?” 

~NPR has the truth about the first Thanksgiving.

KENTUCKY~ The latest Paducah Police undercover theft sting nets no arrests. Law enforcement last month discovered more meth labs than ever before (and the state is already breaking its annual records). Unemployment figures lower across the region. Fort Campbell has a new (but familiar) incoming commander. Beshear appoints several area residents to advise on LBL matters.

TENNESSEE~ Paris’ hospital is going to build itself a new power plant for over $8mil. Adopt a wild horse next weekend.

OTHER~ Celebrate National Day of Listening (tomorrow) by hearing this piece.
