Black Friday is kind of collective sickness, like the Salem Witch trials.

The fact that someone is out there purchasing something they can't afford on layaway, against her own personal biases on this matter (and I don't care one way or another about WalMart, but the person quoted does seem to do so) is an indication we are off the rails.

Of course, I'm a complete hypocrite since my entire professional career revolves around retail construction, so without this kind of spending nonsense I'd find it harder to get work.

Me, I spent yesterday planting a beautiful fuschia over my kitty's grave.
