Kentucky Concedes Thanksgiving Defeat

By and SHARE

How considerate of the University of Kentucky to approve a one-day extension of Thanksgiving break. Officials are eliminating class (which no one attends, anyway) the Wednesday before the holiday, the Kentucky Kernel reports--in theory giving "students time with their family as well as a chance to be better prepared for finals." And if by "finals," UK actually means the traditional night-before-Thanksgiving booze fest back home, then students and hard-partying professors are no doubt eternally grateful. --Christina Mueller and Alison Go
