This past Friday, “Black Friday” to the retailers, a man was trampled to death by shoppers stampeding into a New York Wal-Mart.
A man was trampled. To death. By shoppers.
It was an atrocity I still can’t comprehend. And I haven’t written about it because I couldn’t find the words. Over at the Washington Post, however, Michelle Singletary found the words today. In “Attention, Shoppers: Where’s your humanity?” she tells it the way I wanted to. Only much, much better.
Black Friday. Indeed, it was.
