Trampled to Death at Wal-Mart?

The Second Essential Scary Truth

Black Friday has come and gone once again.  The actual numbers for the day and how the bad economy has been an effect on the holiday spending habits of everyday Americans has yet to be seen.  I have heard early reports that have taken both the good and bad sides of the economic argument.  The real effect of this Christmas season on retailers and economic outlets won’t be seen until sometime in January.

However, we have already seen one of the effects of the worst economy the country has seen in nearly 75 years.  In a story that garnered national headlines, a worker at a Valley Stream, Long Island Wal-Mart was trampled to death by shoppers as he opened the store on Black Friday morning.

It appears the fears of ordinary Americans have become so visceral that shopping at discount retail outlets has become a distinctly unsafe idea.  Just when you thought it was safe to walk in the South Bronx or Detroit, now going to by that new pair of badly made sneakers at PayLess Shoe Mart is worse than going to a Cincinnati Who Concert in December of 1979.

Watch your back at those K-Mart Blue Light Specials kids.
