I've decided recently that I really don't like American irony. It's too...ironic. I'm tired of it.
I mean, the star of Fast and Furious dying in a car wreck?
Back to local...on Monday we had a worse day than usual. That is, fewer people shopped through our links and bought stuff on "Cyber Monday" than on a normal Monday. A mundane old nuthin' special Monday.
You know what they say: Oh well. Thanks to those of you who did.
I just don't like irony any more.

Arg: "You need a 'Like' button. Your posts are funny. Even when you're losing money. (Is that another irony?)"
Jack Nelson: "Maybe your typical TOP shopper is just a tad too sophisticated to pay attention to manufactured events like 'Cyber Monday.'"
Mike replies: Good point. After all, I can't picture TOP readers slugging it out on the floor of Wal-Mart on Black Friday.
