Not intending to make a political point here, but keep in mind that the "luxury" sector and high end merchandise sales are doing quite well and we have a very bifurcated economy in that respect. Seems that the well-to-do aren't pulling back as much as the rest of us have felt the need to.

What's political about that? That high end merchandise isn't actually made by millionaires, you know. We would be in worse shape if the rich stopped spending. What would be political is if you pointed out that they have to buy their Lear jets from Canada, now.
