This is from Lines of a Layman: The Golden Rule in Every Day Living, published in 1956 by WM. B. EERDMANS PUBLISHING CO. Grand Rapids Michigan.
The author is a guy named James Cash Penney. For real, he’s the son of a preacher. He goes by J. C. Penney.
Those of us watching television this weekend are being assaulted by the company that bears his name.
I was in a Penney’s just the other day. I saw that the store was going to open at 4am, and I commented on this to the lady on the other side of the counter. She had to be there at 3.
I said I’d never met James Cash Penney, but I’d known people who had. And that I thought he would be turning over in his grave if he saw what was going on.
I know my dad is.
