Above average [November 15]

It’s the week before Thanksgiving, and time to start thinking not about the Pilgrims, but about how much money you’re going to shell out for the big dinner. Inrich.com reports this morning on the findings of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation: The average cost of a Thanksgiving dinner for 10 in the state—$40.74—climbed 5.4 percent from last year. The culprits are soaring livestock and energy prices. And guess who will pay the most in Virginia: Charlottesville-area residents. According to inrich.com, our average price for a dinner for 10 will be $49.92. The hippest always take it the hardest, don’t they?
