    I am not sure how all the people who drove to Birch Run yesterday can say the saved money....yes, the stuff they bought may have been cheaper but 2 nights in a motel and gas would surely add up!
    Also heard this morning that there have been a couple of shootings somewhere in the US due to Black Friday shopping....gotta get that TV on sale and line up for hours to get into the Coach store

    Some people just like to get away for a couple days. This gives them a reason.

    Not my idea either. Apparently it's millions of people's idea of a good time. Personally I like poisoning dogs for fun.
