I have nothing against people lining up at a store at 3:00 a.m. to go shopping, but I do think that’s taking it to the extreme. Chances are whatever it is you’re looking for will still be there when the sun is up. But if that’s your passion and no one gets hurt, have fun.
I’m glad to see that there’s such enthusiasm for consumer spending, and I hope all the reports of record crowds aren’t just hopeful hype by the retailers. If it is so, then it’s a good sign for the economy; people have been saving up for the holidays and this could be a sign of recovery.
