Dear America,

Normally, I think you’re a pretty cool place. I have relative freedom (though I’m keeping my eye on you on this one). I enjoy fairly inexpensive technological advances that would have seemed like magic 100 years ago. And I don’t even have to work myself near to death each day to get by. You get props for that, America, really.

But today I am not happy with you, America. No, today I must go to work and deal with what appears to be the natural outcome of the consumer culture that you’ve given us – Black Friday…

So you’ll have to excuse me if I’m not loving you today, America. Try me again after New Year’s Day.

Let me know what you think
