Crazy with Fire in Their Eyes !
Green, American dollars are pulled from leather chain-drive wallets with snaps, sealed envelopes, inside coat pockets, front denim pockets . . . many are crumpled, $100 bills so fresh - they're stuck together, crisp and new - exchanged for rusty metal or heavy cast iron. What a zoo of emotions. It's nuts. All this happening inside, aisles filling, while the rest of the penny-pinchers line up outside. They wait for the actual 10:00am Opening time and save a whole $5 bucks, but stand in line, in the cold, talking and smoking cigarettes. I finally show up 4 hours later and get right in . . . like a cat picking through scraps.
