Editor’s Note: This week we’re running a series of our favorite holiday travel columns. And we knew we had to start with Andy Smith’s Thanksgiving air travel odyssey. There’s a sequel to “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” in here somewhere! “This Thanksgiving trip turned into a real turkey”
With everyone is saying “Thank you” today, what better time to think about what comes next?

It’s Black Friday.
“Maybe we should call it Retail Against Humanity?”
