It’s now less than two months before Christmas. I know this because I have been in several retail establishments over the weekend where my senses were assaulted with tokens of indifference towards Thanksgiving. Just yesterday in Target I had the experience of hearing the ever-torturous “dogs singing jingle bells” song coming from the greeting cards aisle. There an older lady was looking down at it, not making any effort to suddenly snap it closed like a human being normally would, but instead had the audacity to tap her foot.

The end of Western civilization you may say? Bah!

We passed that years ago.
