Sigh. That time of year. Buy! Save! Now! More! Some suggestions: For the season, if you feel you must shop, go local and modest and ecologically palatable. For Black Friday, buy nothing. For Thanksgiving, give thanks

Billy and his Stop Shopping Choir, who are spending the day camped out with a local, organic dinner on the lawn of Monsanto's St. Louis headquarters, after which they will deliver another to activists on the front lines in Ferguson. Thus comes hope. Given our relative universe, here are lists of companies bad (forcing workers to show up on Thanksgiving) and better.
