Thanksgiving Countdown; Capri Anderson, Charlie Sheen's Porn Star, Will Sue; DOT Unveils "Don't Be a Jerk" Campaign

• Happy Monday! It's Thanksgiving week, meaning a three-day work week for most of us, followed by guilt and carb-loading. Thanksgiving day will bring showers and temperatures in the 40s. Plus, turkey. [Weather]

• Some people are saying screw it to standing in line in the cold and possibly getting trampled by Black Friday shoppers and are just going to shop online at home, even on Thanksgiving itself. Which gives you something to do besides hear that same story from your relatives six times. [NYT]

• Capri Anderson, the porn star who wound up naked and cowering in a bathroom at the Plaza during a Charlie Sheen rampage, is telling all on Good Morning America and Nightline today. She's suing Sheen for "battery, assault, false imprisonment and distress." Also, she says she never got paid the $3,500 she was due for showing up at dinner. [NYDN, NYP]

• The New York City Department of Transportation will be unveiling a new "Don't Be a Jerk" campaign to try to get people (cyclists, pedestrians, and drivers alike) to actually use bike lanes correctly. [WSJ]

• Camden, New Jersey, has been ranked the second most dangerous city in the U.S. Colonie, New York, was the safest, while NYC got number 132 out of 400 on the safe list. [NBC NY]

• An adorable (but tough!) 6-pound Chihuahua named Momo has passed the test to join the police force in Japan as a search-and-rescue dog. Because he'll fit into the places the German Shepherds can't. [BBC]
