Today is not "Macy's Day," damn it


I hope I live long enough to witness a Thanksgiving Day when no dopey newscaster for a New York TV or radio station refers to the "Macy's Day Parade" instead of "Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade." The parade was first presented in 1924, and the mis-labeling probably started soon after.



[above] HOLY TURKEY SHIT! It's worse than I thought. I like Macy's. I'm a third-generation Macy's customer, but this is ridiculous. 



The selling of "naming rights" like "Citi (Bank) Field" and "Staples Center" is common for buildings -- but are holidays next? Will we see "Disney July Fourth," "Manischewitz Passover" or "Bud Lite News Year?"



[above] While I'm at it, I'd like to throw some mud at the media dimwits and ordinary New Yorkers who type or say "Port of Authority" (really the "Port Authority of New York and New Jersey").
