Thanks, Michael. As I temporarily shifted my own consumption patterns yesterday, a friendly Home Depot employee lamented over my shoulder his exposure to Christmas carols all day long since November 1. Sorting through compressor fittings, I felt his pain. An hour or so ago, watching the local TV news broadcast over dinner, I noted their acknowledgement of Occupy Christmas {a movement heretofore unknown to me - or Nick, I'll bet). With so many observers in the mainstream media writing off the Occupy movement this past week, if nothing else the occupiers have given cause for some to notice our collective devotion to the cult of consumerism. Yeah, BND was promoted by Adbusters eons before it suggested Occupy, but the observation may create a foothold (so to speak) in the minds of some of our friends out there. Now if I could only get through to my wife in Grove City ... Nice post, keep it going.
