The last reports from the shopping wars at the no-man's mall consisted of some typical happenings: A man and his son bragged that they stood in line from 3 a.m. to buy the latest electronic gadgets.
A mother consoled her crying young son because the store was out of the designer shoes he wanted.
The elderly lady was shown shoving teenagers aside to grab the latest fashion apparel for herself.
Things have come to this: we Americans are ready to buy, buy, buy, and pay, pay, pay for our frivolities.
But we will try to evade bills from mechanics, carpenters, plumbers and medical services.
