No Issue November 28

Since the campus population is down for Thanksgiving Break, there is no Almanac scheduled for November 28. Members of our staff are on duty to assist contributors planning insertions for November 21 and beyond. Breaking news and bulletins will be posted to "Almanac Between Issues" (see www.upenn.edu/almanac/between/).
