A New Low in American Consumerism
Well...I hope it was worth it...I hope they all got really good deals, because a Long Island Wal-Mart worker lost his life in the name of consumerism. Throngs of people apparently busted through the front doors 5 minutes before the store was slated to open...apparently they just couldn't wait any longer. A number of people were injured and one unlucky soul was killed. Here's a couple links to the story at the NY Times and the Toronto Star. We, as Americans, should be collectively embarrassed and remorseful, and hang our heads low. I pose the question again which I first posted earlier today: Do we really need any more stuff? The shoppers got a bargain...I don't think so. Black Friday...what a fitting name.
