My psychiatrist, Dr. Celineta Rottweiler, says the American family isn’t what it used to be.
Bonds are loosening and everyone talks to each other only on Facebook.
So let’s hail the bow to the modern family offered by Best Buy.
The company has decided that it’s not good enough to entice shoppers to begin their Black Friday shopping at midnight, when the turkey is digested and the Wild Turkey is absorbed.
Instead, the doors of your local Best Buy will open at 6 p.m.
A Best Buy spokeswoman told the Associated Press that this is what the American people want: “Last year customers clearly showed that they wanted to be out shopping much earlier on Thanksgiving.”
I am not sure whether the American people expressed themselves by lining up at 6 p.m. precisely or whether they inundated Best Buy with a promise to start their own Thanksgiving festivities at 11 a.m.
