If it was Thanksgiving, we’d get stories about soup kitchens, returning soldiers, and pre-Christmas sales.
If it was Christmas, we’d get shots of returning soldiers and soup kitchens.
But this is Labor Day, and doing stories about working class issues might be a little awkward in a part of the country where news anchors genuflect as Wal-Mart press releases are treated like manna from Heaven. So instead we’ll have what we always have - hard-hitting stories about how folks amuse themselves on the Labor Day weekend.
