The premier shopping day of the Christmas season.
And the reason it's black? Because retailers have to sell, sell, sell and sell some more or they won't be "in the black" for the year if they don't make a good showing at Christmas sales.
Christmas has been turned into an economic event. Make people want to spend money. Make them feel guilty if they don't spend or over spend.
And in the White House christmas has become a cause for patriots to rally behind the flag of retail sales which will boost the economy.
Yesterday was gluttony.
Today kicks off the season to be greedy.
Fa la la la la.
