November brings with it thoughts of Thanksgiving, and Thanksgiving brings with it thoughts of the annual Turkey of the Year competition.
Each year Houston's best and brightest battle it out for the right to be named the ultimate Turkey of the Year, or at the very least a turkey in one of the sub-categories.
Sometimes we think local politicians are acting incredibly stupid, but then we realize -- they're just trying hard for that award. Can't blame them for that.
As always, we look forward to any suggestions and nominees.
Feel feel to use the comments section, or -- as some of you seem to prefer -- hit me up at my e-mail.
They've all done their best. Now it's up to you.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
