A Back Talk holiday tradition is our annual Black Friday shopping post. That’s where I wonder in awe and amazement that anyone would get up before breakfast to go shopping for a TV set, and our regular visitors point out that I am woefully out of touch with reality. So go at it — if you went shopping today, leave a comment. Or, if you didn’t, tell us why. The rest of the blog will be off (and I’ll be in Oklahoma without TV set, telephone or Internet access, as far away from shopping as possible).
And, as a public service (and because I think it’s odd), after the jump: A list of Dallas-area stores and when they opened today.
