Notes on Indiana: Thanksgiving prep

When I think about it, this isn’t really so much an Indiana thing as an American thing (and soon to be a world thing). We went to one of the warehouse club stores (Costco) yesterday to shop in preparation for today’s Thanksgiving meal. These places represent both the best and the worst of America in my opinion. On the one hand, they are models of supply chain efficiency. On the other, they lay bare the orgy of overconsumption upon which this nation is based.

  1. I’ve been debating whether or not to hold on to my Costco membership. Especially after my Dad moves out of the country.
