Traditional respect for elders was eroded. Now there is a generation of teenagers and young men who, while they don't have guns, do have their fists and access to knives and machetes. The crime rate has gone up and there is a lot more violence within families.

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching. Because of falling ad revenues and the owners of the site wanting you to have a good experience, this poor pet bird (Drake) may end up as the turkey for the publisher’s Thanksgiving meal.

What can you do to help save the bird? There are three possibilities:

  1. Make sure you spread the word about us. Two ways to do that are to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
  2. Subscribe to our daily newsletter. We’ll send the news to your email box, and you don’t have to come to the site unless you want to read columns or see photos.
  3. You can contribute to the health of StrategyPage. A contribution is not a donation that you can deduct at tax time, but a form of crowdfunding. We store none of your information when you contribute..

Drake appreciates any help you can give him.
