Charles Winkleman, a regular critic of ...

- Backstory: Strangest Reader Response via Seven Days
I opened the door around back and nearly stepped on Moses. Moses, the ferret. The man, John Brown, told me he and Hayden were long-lost cousins who became friends on the streets of Burlington in the '90s. He looked ruggedly biblical, and we talked about his interpretation of Christianity for a long while. Brown had been a member of the Aryan ...

It's Boxing Day in Canada (and many other places). That's basically a shopping holiday. I think some stores are trying to bring that over to the US. Interestingly, Black Friday has actually migrated to other countries that don't have Thanksgiving. Our retailers are becoming more international in the name of opening our wallets. Good for them? Good for us? Probably, I like sales. And there's nothing stopping you from ignoring it if you don't.
