Happy Thanksgiving! We're celebrating the holiday today and tomorrow by cracking open our vaults and sharing some of the best studio pictures from Thanksgivings past. In this one, an anxious Judy Garland feeds one of her less-photogenic costars.

When we sit at the keyboard typing out our message, the brain assumes that all the other clues that signal the emotional part of that message go out, too. If someone assumes the message they just sent was positive, research shows, the receiver is more likely to take it as fairly neutral. If the sender thinks the message was neutral, the receiver is more likely to read a negative spin into it. -NYTimes
John F Kennedy,
RIP 49 years ago today
“If by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people-their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights and their civil liberties-someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal", then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.” - Today we remember to be thankful for President John F. Kennedy, who was murdered 49 years ago today.
Direct: You look at individuals in their eyes.
Sustained: You look at them long enough for them to feel you care and are talking to them (a half second to a second is fine).
Deliberate: You make them feel you are talking with them.
Distributed: You try to cover everyone, or at least each section of the audience (if audience is large).
