WHAT SANTA IS DUMPING DOWN OUR CHIMNEYS THIS YEAR
O n my desk I have a pile of statistics about “consumer trends.” A bunch of numbers: Such-and-such percentage increase (or un-crease) in this, that, or the other median doohickey of whatchamacallems and thingamabobs from way back when to lately, according to the National Bureau of Whoosis and Whatzat. I’m throwing the statistics in the wastepaper basket. A better way to understand American consumer trends is simply to observe America – just look around, open your eyes... and your ears.
