It was Black Friday today (the infamous shopping day after Thanksgiving, with people trampling over one another and fighting over items that are on sale). It was wet and cold here in Seattle, and on top of all that, I saw on the news tonight that there was a ruckus in downtown (again) at the lighting of the Christmas tree there. Protestors, still over the Ferguson police shooting, crowded into the Westlake shopping mall, and tried to disrupt the proceedings at the tree lighting. So a good thing I ventured no further than the grcoery store here two blocks from my house !
On a happier note, I see our Cinerama movie theater has reopened after extensive renovations. It’s been many years since I’ve been there, and I should go check it out.
