Black November

Nobody asked but …

Are you noticing how Black Friday is edging forward, moving the bread and circuses to an expanse stretching from halloween to new year.  The media are going for a 61 day vacation at work — if you just cover shopping, you may never have to leave your desk.  In fact, you may get to stay home, reporting in your PJs.  Shopping now has all the predictable violence, human comedy, and intrigue necessary for reality show or cable news (but  I repeat myself) programming.  It is all voluntary for sure, but I can’t see true voluntaryists falling for the hype.
