Comments: So, In Today's Headlines

You have to go to Europe to find business clothes. The US is being "Wal-Marted" at all levels. The upscale department stores have all been consolidated into two or three chains, so they all carry the same merchandise.

As in media and everything else American the individual as fewer choices every year.

Well, I do have a small vacation planned for next week, but I think it's a bit late to try and get to Europe. (For one thing, trying to book a last-minute ticket overseas would probably result in my name being added to a "suspicious persons" database.)

It is, in fact, amazingly frustrating that this country is becoming so tastelessly homogenous.
