Monday, November 27, 2006.  Twenty years ago today was Thanksgiving Day, and an article in the St. Petersburg Times was the first to characterize the next day as "Black Friday."  I take a look at that name, whether it really fits, and Christmas shopping.

Today's episode music is "See You In Seattle," by the Scottish Guitar Quartet.  Theme music composed and performed by Marc Rose.
