    BOSTON (CBS) – The days leading up to Thanksgiving get all the hype when it comes to holiday travel. But with the weekend coming to a close, Logan Airport was packed on Sunday morning with people headed home from the holiday away. MassDOT also anticipates Sunday will be the busiest travel day on the roads. “The big roadways we track are the ones leading to far reaches of the state and out of state – 495, turnpike always the big ones,” Jonathan Gulliver, MassDOT Highway Administrator, said. ”A lot of people travel that way to go to their destinations and to return. (Interstate) 93, 95, all the biggest highways are the ones people to go. It really makes for difficult travel on those roadways if you have to be on them for any other reason.” MassDOT reminded drivers to be patient and stay focused on the road. Officials said distracted driving is to blame for most serious crashes this time of year.

    People ride on the elevator as shoppers show up early for the Black Friday sales at the King of Prussia shopping mall in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, November 26, 2021.Rachel Wisniewski | Reuters Online spending during the holiday season is on track to top $200 billion for the first time, but Thanksgiving day sales were on the low end of projections, according to data from Adobe Analytics, which tracks consumer sales on retailers' websites. Sales online on Thanksgiving day rang in at $5.1 billion, according to Adobe. That matches last year's Thanksgiving day spending. It is a roughly 21% increase from that day in 2019, the company said. However, the level of e-commerce spending was at the bottom of Adobe's predicted range, which was between $5.1 billion and $5.4 billion. The company expects total online sales this season to hit $207 billion — a 10% year over year increase and all-time high. The results raise questions about whether holiday demand will be as strong as predicted or whether Thanksgiving has diminished in importance as shoppers buy gifts throughout the...

    A Nantucket man reportedly gave President Joe Biden’s motorcade the middle finger as Biden made a stop on Thanksgiving during his stay at billionaire David Rubinstein’s compound. Biden and first lady Jill greeted the U.S. Coast Guard members before retiring to their vacation home on Rubenstein’s island. Biden gave “challenge coins” to Coast Guard members as a way to commemorate their service. The President said to Coast Guard members: I’m not joking when I say I’m thankful for these guys – I’m thankful for them, and everybody, I mean it from the bottom of my heart. I’ve watched them in the South China Sea, I’ve watched them in Afghanistan, Iraq.

The Nantucket man’s gesture is symbolic of how many Americans feel about the President and represents a rising discontent with Biden.

    To most, Thanksgiving connotes a joyous time of family, food, and celebration.

    Members of Native American tribes from around New England are gathering in the seaside town where the Pilgrims settled — not to give thanks, but to mourn Indigenous people worldwide who’ve suffered centuries of racism and mistreatment. Thursday’s solemn National Day of Mourning observance in downtown Plymouth, Massachusetts, will recall the disease and oppression they say European settlers brought to North America. "We Native people have no reason to celebrate the arrival of the Pilgrims," said Kisha James, a member of the Aquinnah Wampanoag and Oglala Lakota tribes and the granddaughter of Wamsutta Frank James, the event’s founder.

President Biden has decided to release millions of barrels of oil from the strategic reserve in a move that in no way has anything to do with his plummeting poll numbers. Joe has dusted off an old Democrat bogeyman to blame for the crisis – the oil companies. (He insists his own green anti-drilling policies are irrelevant.)

He was crying, the tears falling, his face a mudslide of emotion. “I’m sorry,’ he said.
