I hope everyone had a Happy Female Parental Unit day. I hope that, like Chri$tma$ and Ea$ter, you celebrated the true meaning of the holiday by buying gifts. Oh, wait! That is the true meaning of the holiday.

The card companies have pushed Mother's Day with a ferocity comparable only to Valentine's Day, aided and abetted by the chocolate industry. Instead of honoring mom, we buy her a card, some candy and take her to dinner. And as long as we're spending money, the big corporations are happy.

We are consumers, for sure. On Monday, the day after Mothers' Day, I received three spam emails reminding me that it wasn't too late to order for Fathers' Day.
