Buy Nothing Day


This morning here in suburbia, local news had live reports from the area malls. A news chopper hovering overhead brought pictures of chilly shoppers lined up in the pre-dawn darkness outside a Super Wal Mart. It’s insane! Better to sit home with a cold six-pack, the remote control or a good book, and celebrate this. Me, I just went to a barbecue joint and bought a couple pounds of ribs, and ate them for lunch (Dr. Atkins, the prodigal returneth). So maybe I’ve violated the letter of the law already.
