I have always made my position on Black Friday clear, and a death at Wal-Mart yesterday further enforces my disgust for this unofficial holiday. From the article:

“He was bum-rushed by 200 people,” co-worker Jimmy Overby, 43, told the Daily News. “They took the doors off the hinges. He was trampled and killed in front of me. They took me down too. … I literally had to fight people off my back.”

What the fuck, people? Is buying a Wall-E robot or an Elmo Live doll really worth the life of another human being? Haven’t things gotten way out of control when the police have to be called in?

I thought Christmas was supposed to be a Christian holiday, but the way people act on Black Friday — the first official shopping day of Christmas — is utterly appalling.
