Buy! More! Bigger! Or Not!

Buy! More! Bigger! Or Not!

Abby Zimet

It is, of course, the day we're supposed to run around buying stuff none
of us needs. Jews are somewhat exempt, but still it's hard not to
notice the screaming ads for 4 a.m. deals and the inevitable stories of
insanity, like the woman who tried to jump the 10 p.m. line at a Wisconsin Toys 'R Us and threatened to shoot shoppers who objected. Sigh. Go to events in some of the 365 cities honoring Buy Nothing Day. Or stay home, read a book, take a walk, breathe. This too shall pass.

Update: WTF? here's a video compilation of what you missed. Insane.
