To set the scene, it's a beautiful sunny day here in San Francisco. Temperature is about 70 degrees, which is pretty stunning for November 15.
I walk down the street from my office, enjoying the sunshine, and stop in the nearby Borders books to browse the magazine racks. And there it is, playing on the sound system:
"God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen." Sounded like Manheim Steamroller. On November 15!
My first edict when I take over the world: No Christmas carols until after Thanksgiving.
