I'm less offended by Black Friday shoppers -- whatever floats your boat -- than by the inexcusable media hype. Growing up, "Black Friday" got brief mentions in business news but that was about it. Now it's become a vulgar holiday unto itself. Watching a marathon of "Alaska, the Last Frontier" (awesome series, by the way) every other ad was about Black Friday sales. It's the lead story in every newpaper, TV news and website. The coverage is like consumerism porn. It's gross.
