X-Mas music vs campaign ads

When I walked into Costco the day after Labor Day and found Christmas decorations already up and for sale, I was horrified. Now that we are entering the 600th week of this year’s political campaign season and my ears are actually bleeding every time another spot comes on TV – even if only for a second before I can find the mute button – I realize that the sound of Christmas music playing ad nauseum for the next two months actually looks like a welcomed relief.
