They’ll believe anything


I really hate to begin almost every post with “Remember when…,” but I think this recollection is worthwhile. Remember when there’d be an annual holiday countdown to Chrismas Day? The newspapers and the radio stations and the television stations would remind us of the “shopping days” left until Christmas. I’m not necessarily a fan of “blue laws” or compulsory store closings, but I think it’s very quaint that we in this country ever thought of any day as a non-shopping day.
