Thursdays are always banner days for the newspaper flyer cartel, of course, but today especially so. Today I received six, count 'em ... six, identical flyers for Toys Backward R Us in my morning paper.
It's possible that my newspaper carrier gets paid by the kilogram. It's not unlikely that my local newspaper is secret front for the forestry industry. But my suspicion is that I have been subjected to personal espionage by the toy-makers' cabal. Somehow they know that I buy a new board game for the family every Christmas and that I have not set foot inside a Toys Backward R Us for about a dozen years.
Where's Edward Snowden when you need him?
