An ode to the ever shortening Thanksgiving holiday

By which I mean "the ever shortening time between the end of Thanksgiving dinner and the start of shopping".  At the pace it's going, Black Friday will soon fall on Halloween.

This, of course, was foreseen back in the 1960s.  It was funny back then, in a "ha ha, only kidding" sense.  Now it's "ha ha, only serious".

For all his liberal politics, Tom Lehrer was brilliant and very funny!

I dunno--there was a lot of pushback last year about stores being open on Thanksgiving day, and this year big stores de-emphasized Thursday sales.

I had to go to a Wal-Mart pharmacy yesterday and the store wasn't as horrifyingly-packed as I had feared it would be.
