While constituents talked budgets and agendas with the commissioners at a booth near the food court, children squealed over a miniature horse, rabbits, alpacas and a 2-day-old calf set up in pens in a vacant store next to Old Navy.

As you read this, I likely will be out there among the people. I've run out of excuses, so I'm jumping into the Black Friday fray today. Maybe because I haven't done the Black Friday shopping thing in six or seven years, I'm saying to my wife, “Let's go out there and have some fun.” Huh? Yeah, what could be more fun than being on your feet for hours, waiting in line with people - some of whom are smelly and a little scary - that you don't know? Pushing and shoving - and even running - for the hot toy that is only three bucks less than it will be on Tuesday, when no one is in the store.
