Be a news source on all subjects Black Friday

Once a month, The Baltimore Sun invites everyone -- yes, you too -- to share experiences that will help us better understand how folks are dealing with day-to-day economic realities. The newest topic: Black Friday, that frenzy of post-Thanksgiving shopping.

Will you partake? Have your plans changed from previous years thanks to the downturn?

You can find the Black Friday questions here. Or go to baltimoresun.com/lightsource, our main page for our "be a news source" effort.

Why are we doing this? Because economic news coverage is better and more relevant when it's not just the pundits talking.

Grateful thanks to all who participate and -- better yet -- spread the word.

On black friday, we'll be opening a production at Single Carrot Theatre. Families are in town for the holidays and they'll need something to do after shuffling through the mall all day.

I was seriously considering bringing a video camera and filming the spectacle. How better to celebrate the life of a man who lived in poverty, gave everything he had to others, and was an advocate for the poor than to go out and buy some new stuff made by 3rd world exploited labor living in worse conditions than most of our incarcerated criminals do?
