Buy Nothing Day.

Dex has some worthwhile observations about the ultimately futile notion of making the day after Thanksgiving "Buy Nothing Day.", which he presents in the context of Boulder's never ending existential struggle between independent authenticity and wealth driven pretension. (Although I won't join his understated suggested that being a tax protestor is a better alternative to bring about social change).

Yeah, and he's getting the typical dress-down from a highly defensive Boulder type over there, too.

I swear, Boulderites are like fundamentalists- point out a flaw and they get all "persecution" on your ass.
