Black Friday in downtown Seattle at Westlake - and as the crowds spend money they haven't got on their credit cards, for the fifth year running the "Buy More Stuff" campaigners (BuyMoreStuff.org/) were out in force doing what those Seattle activists do best of all.
You can overhear conversations with bemused shoppers wondering what they are all about, going something like this:
"What's the message here?"
"To Buy More Stuff."
"Is this sarcastic?"
"No, ma'am. We think everyone should buy more stuff, and hurry!"
"Are you an anarchist?"
"No. I believe in spending. Either the stores will run out of stuff or you'll run out of time!"
