Black Friday, Indeed

I read this headline and opening line of an article just reported and shuddered for many a reason:

Wal-Mart worker dies after shoppers knock him down

A worker died after being trampled by a throng of unruly shoppers when a suburban Wal-Mart opened for the holiday sales rush Friday, authorities said.

I swear my next post won't be so dark....

i know - i was so upset by this. and at the same time, i was glued to the news of what was happening in India - this seemed even more unreasonably ridiculous and shameful, if that is possible.

Ditto. I was so saddened by this news.

@jippert on Twitter sent me a link to your blog. Thought you might appreciate this post I wrote.

This was such a terrible shame. And so horrible that people can get into a frenzy about STUFF.
