    the ridiculous over-the-top commercialization of Christmas for souring Thanksgiving.

    I always worry about people this time of year--just stressed-out looking strangers  who I pass while wheeling my buggy in the grocery store. I wonder how many are maxxing out their credit cards--again--because they feel obligated to spend far more money than they have on things, many of which will end up in the trash heap before the interest is paid on them.

    Consumerism is killing us.
