    Sandals! I'm betting people in Arkansas label you as an elitist. Walk proud, Aunt Spiker, walk proud.

We are pleasant folk. Thank you corporate America for providing a better leisurely lifestyle for me and my family.
    You know you were the one that pepper sprayed old women to get to that $10 crock pot.

    Re: Violence mars Black Friday

    Yesterday, I decided to head over to a few of the local Best Buys... just to watch and see what things were like. Bizarre. It was 7:30 PM. The store was going to open at midnight. Both stores were about 250 people deep. It looked like a tailgating party at a football game. Every one had chairs, some people had grills with food. I saw people eating turkey, playing cards. There were a couple of entire families, including the grandparents having a grand ole time. I kicked myself because I thought of a great money making scheme... too late. Should have rented some sort of coffee making truck and sold coffee and donuts. Would have made a fortune. It looked like people had been there for maybe 12 hours or more. Were there some good deals? Sure, but not good enough for me to camp out.

    I have boycotted purchasing Christmas/holiday gifts for many years and I don't see any reason for me to change. What I see is that the entire spirit of this holiday season as gone away from what it was originally supposed to mean and I want no part of what it has turned into.

    Sounds like people were enjoying themselves. I can not see any fun whatsoever in rock climbing, but eh, some people do.

    I guess. My idea of fun is not camping out in the cold in front of a store on Thanksgiving, but I suppose some folks had their reasons.

    You coulda done that out of the trunk of your car. Expand your inventory with a selection of candy, cigarettes, etc.

    I think you're right, you would have made a fast few hundred bucks off that deal.

    An ice chest full of beer, a grill, a TV and some good company could make camping out in the front of a store a helluva lot of fun.
