We're back from the Thanksgiving break, and it seems the news forgot to take that break. Video of the Tamir Rice shooting surfaces, and it's outrageous. Greg Dworkin rounded up some of the most interesting writing on Ferguson. A polling update: majority finally say "things going well"; immigration policy OK, process not. Black Friday was meh, but still a huge gun day. SCOTUS takes up the case of a UPS worker put on unpaid leave because she was pregnant. Republican staffer who criticized Obama daughter resigns. The "frightening" Amazon/CIA partnership. Twitter's tracking your other apps. Speaking fees & personal appearance riders. Vanity or necessity?
