I'm not gonna be a hypocrite. Technically I did buy something on black Friday. I went over to a employee owned store in a nearby smalltown and bought an item that was $10.00 less than it nomally is (something we needed).
The nearest outlet center had and estimated attendance of 60,000 and jammed up the nearby interstate. That's fine for people who don't mind the crowds. I don't think there was any violence there and I hope it stimulated the economy. Tommorrow we plan to attend the Ducks/Beavers civil war football game. Similar traffic jams and crowd size are expected there. I hope the crowd's not violent there either. We'll see. Crazed glazed eyed soccer moms and beered up football fans have their similarities, LOL.
