Guns, knives, abandoned toddlers and banjos.

Boy, there's not much of a faster way to destroy the spirit of Thanksgiving than just about any story involving after-Thanksgiving shopping.
You know the usual ones, so we can fast-forward right past those cliches and get right to...
The San Antonio man who pulled a gun on someone cutting in line.
The Sacramento person who threatened to stab people in the line he was in.
And the Massachusetts man who left his girlfriend's 2-year-old son in a car while he went shopping. He got his new flat-screen TV home but left the kid behind.
I have no answers for this behavior so will provide an antidote instead that has absolutely nothing to do with shopping. It's a new TED video about kids -- mere babes, really -- who play bluegrass.
As long as there are 10-year-olds who can play a banjo, there's hope for the species.
