Thanksgiving Statesman worth picking up

Our Thanksgiving Day paper is the biggest of the year, chock full of news and advertising. We’ll have advertising from more than 145 advertisers, some local, some national so you can look for after-Thanksgiving bargains.

In addition to our regular news coverage, Thursday’s Idaho Statesman will publish a section full of listings of gift requests for foster children and elderly shut-ins. This is a public service the Statesman provides every year in partnership with the folks at Soroptimist International of Boise. This listing for the group’s holiday gift drive is a Thanksgiving weekend tradition that benefits hundreds of the neediest people in the Treasure.

If you call before 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, our circulation department can get a home delivery subscription started (377-NEWS). Or you can pick up Thursday’s Statesman at more than 1,500 rack and retailer locations, including Albertsons and Fred Meyer.

Here is a list of some of the advertisers you’ll see included in the Idaho Statesman’s Thursday paper.

That's great! I'll be stone broke and asleep though.

If this had been an actual troll post the attention seeking you just read would've been followed by screaming, name-calling and cutting and pasting for no apparent reason. We now return you to the Idaho Statesman already in progress.

Thanksgiving?

Maybe somebody oughta let The Idaho Spaceman know that it's now January, Thanksgiving went by nearly two months ago, and it's about 10 months until the next one.

(I guess with all the cutbacks, they can't afford calendars, and don't realize they could see the current date plus full calendars on their computers.)

HELLO? THEY ARCHIVE? DATES ARE FROM NOVEMBER.

To read is wonderful. To comprehend art. Falling back to whatever you believed in is NORMAL.
