BF In Red


The plastic bag in which, this morning, the Detroit News reached my door. Amusingly Black Friday is rendered in red. And the sale begins at midnight this day at Kohl’s. It was a very thick bundle because every merchant wants a little sliver of this bonanza of a day. I separated the readable from the rest, which, in our household, is transferred straight into a Kroger paper shopping bag unseen. For recycling. What remained was 1-1/2 inches, the advertising material was 5 inches thick. Kohl’s, I am told, has pretty good prices, by the way, had such even before launching Operation: Black Friday. But rendering that name in red may be, for this merchant, courting disaster. What if you stay? In the red.

In a way this reminds me of the Greek who said, “All Greeks are liars.”
