Oh, it’s Music Night and it’s Black Friday.

I find it bizarre that the country’s retail industry would use a term traditionally fraught with angst as a positive entity. To retailers, of course, it’s the shopping day that pushes them from being in the red to being in the black — profits instead of losses. For the rest of us, it may call up images of famine, riot and death (sorry, I’m a grim sort these days). If nothing else, it gives us a kick off for Music Night. Help us celebrate commercial culture!

    Well, what if “Puff” was someone of international celebrity status and “Jackie Paper” was the media? If so, it makes perfect sense. The celebrity status fades…and Jackie Paper stops paying homage. Now, the question becomes, who was an international celebrity whose star was fading in the mid 60’s?
