Another step in the relentless march of commerce over common sense, as found in the Huffington Post: Macy’s is going to start Black Friday, the big day-after-Thanksgiving kickoff of Christmas shopping season by two hours. 

It’s now 6 p.m… Thanksgiving Day.

Yes, I know it’s not even Halloween yet. Don’t get me started on that one.
