Dark meat is pretty much just as good for you as white meat

This quick article from the NYT is pretty relevant right now, given that Thanksgiving is right around the corner. While an ounce of dark meat has slightly more calories than white meat, 50 to 46, it's no reason to fret.

I would recommend telling this to people after dinner, unless you want the vultures to hawk even more of the dark meat the first go around. If you don't want anyone to know how much dark meat you've hoarded, smothering your turkey in stuffing and gravy has always worked for me.
