Corollary: Event-O-Dex XV
Seriously, though: Buy Nothing Day. After sending out a request for donations from Adbusters readers, the folks behind BND have been able to secure an ad spot on CNN's Lou Dobbs Moneyline. It'll air at 6:49 p.m. EST (3:49 p.m. PST) on Tuesday, Nov. 26. That's tomorrow.

Quoth Adbusters: "After you watch those 30 seconds of TV on Tuesday, make plans to party on Friday, Buy Nothing Day, Nov. 29, 2002. Here's only a glimpse of what's in the works:

"In Norway they're playing volleyball with presents; in the Netherlands they're wearing wings of dollars and flying among consumers; in London they're shooting a film with a human-sized credit card; in Japan, the Zen Santas will meditate; and all over consumerland, activists are hitting big-box stores with whirlmart actions.

"Broadcast your plans -- or locate a group to join."

Several folks in Boston are planning activities. Get involved!
