This is a weird time of year. Officially it’n not a holiday, unless you are a teacher or a student. Our elected officials are off having fun, but government employees (except teachers) have to work or use their vacay days.
Retail employees, on the other hand, are swamped. Good luck getting into a mall or big box store and getting out again with anything in less than an hour or two.
As of this moment there is no news worth commenting on.
