Saturday morning happy news: It’s the weekend. Time to reflect on the important things in life, like news in the New York Times that the prices of big screen TVs “are pretty much in a free fall.” I guess that means if the price of gas keeps going up and we can’t afford to drive anywhere, we can at least afford big screen TVs to watch while we’re stuck at home.
“When it comes to $2,000 TV-purchasing decisions, surveys show men control the purse strings.”
Obviously there was a typo in that sentence as apparently the reporter left out a couple of words. I’m assuming the sentence should have read, “When it comes to $2,000 TV-purchasing decisions, surveys show men pretend they control the purse strings.”
