Avoided “Black Friday” for the most part, which now has no beginning or end—it is simply, All The Time. Stopped in Walmart after dinner to pick up some decongestant and see how the mayhem may have left the store. It was largely in tact, with a few raided bins of devoid merchandise and many more […]
