It’s September, so as far as I’m concerned we are now in the midst of the holiday season. (Yes, I start celebrating a tad earlier than most, and I’m having to resist the urge to bust out the Christmas music before November.)

In the hours leading up to Target's midnight opening, the
atmosphere was like a late-night blockbuster movie premiere.
Shoppers bundled up in coats, scarves and blankets, waiting it out
with friends and family in hopes of snagging some major deals. More

the cold hours more comfortably. Some tipped over shopping carts
for a haphazard perch off of the icy concrete.

A few years ago, I entered a local restaurant wearing my pink

always had an uneasy feeling when he walked back to his car at
night after writing a traffic citation. It takes several seconds
