On the way in yesterday, I noticed these two articles in the NYTimes:
• Rough Times Take Bloom Off a New Year’s Rite, the Rose Parade (page, 1 NYT)
• In Gloomy Economic Times, Santas Learn to Help by Curbing Expectations (section A – page 12, NYT )
Does anyone really believe sales were up 17%?
Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
