CHRISTMAS CREEP shows no signs of abating, does it?
Costco, of course, has long been the retail standard-bearer for introducing holiday merchandise well ahead of the holidays themselves.
Other retailers, though, are doing their best to catch up.

But sadly, the will of the retail economy seems to be more powerful than society’s collective respect for veterans.
