If you live in the U.S., this is the week to gorge on turkey. I
wondered out loud last night to my wife if Thanksgiving is the
day of the year when the most people eat the same meal. Can any
of our overseas readers add to the conversation? Is there a

of stuffing, here's some developer news you can use.
Oracle announces Plan B for Java
The Java language has continued to evolve over the years, adding
features such as Generics. There's an ambitious wishlist of

decided to forego some of the goodies until Java 8, which is
not expected to grace the world until late 2012.
