Jesus, Doug R, what's the matter with your ears?

You, perhaps, enjoy being swept up in crowds of people in a semi-hypnotic trance of material acqusition, doing a mass dance of sucking up material wares and goods far beyond their needs? I am all for celebrating the amazing productivity of our economy, but that doesn't mean I enjoy heavily crowded race-mills of overloaded carts, being elbowed by shoppers who are made oblivious and semi-hypnotized by the objects around them, and aisles lined with bleeping games and inane television shows being broadcast on floor models. If you get off on these things, go hang out at Wal Mart!
