There was a time when summer was summer and you knew that as August was coming to a close, you were getting ready for school to begin. The last week of August generally meant school supplies and school clothes.
Now the middle of August means get ready, for school creeps further and further into summer vacation.
Is this a good thing or bad thing? Is it better to look at Labor Day Weekend as the last gasp before it all begins or as the first ray of sunshine after we have already started the grind?
You tell me what you think.
