1. Honestly, there is New Mexico outside of Albuquerque.
Up here in Santa Fe we have two, count 'em two, WalMarts, and a Sam's Club. I never go to either. I did work yesterday, Thanksgiving, at the local hospital, and my drive to and from work did not take me by any of those establishments. Today, I also worked, and would have driven past the Sam's Club, but reconsidered, since that route also took me past a great number of retail outlets. Instead, I took the route that avoided them all.
I can tell you that when I was driving home on Thursday the local K-Mart looked open with a lot of cars out front. This was a little after 8pm.
It is my personal and considered opinion that anyone who shops on Thanksgiving Day is an idiot, is probably not getting as good a deal as he thinks, and should burn in hell for that. Just my opinion.
Shopping on the day after Thanksgiving is almost as bad.
What if math teachers are really pirates and want us to find X so they can get the buried treasure
