It Was Just A Matter Of Time

“Black Friday” stampede on Long Island kills a store worker:

A worker died after being trampled and a woman miscarried when hundreds of shoppers smashed through the doors of a Long Island Wal-Mart Friday morning, witnesses said.

The unidentified worker, employed as an overnight stock clerk, tried to hold back the unruly crowds just after the Valley Stream store opened at 5 a.m.

Witnesses said the surging throngs of shoppers knocked the man down. He fell and was stepped on. As he gasped for air, shoppers ran over and around him.

Europe has soccer games; we have Black Friday.

  1. So how many of those caring compassionate New Yorkers were Obama voters?

    I flew in to LGA a couple months ago & the thing that left the biggest impression on me was the stench! Apparently the whole area is like that.

  2. I t kinda reminds me of the long, long lines in Florida when they opened up early voting in October.
    Lemmings and sheep.

  3. Maybe that’s why blue staters are so facially-contemptuous of things like Wal-Mart, Nascar, guns and religion; they don’t trust their neighbors around crowds, fast cars, firearms and dogma.

  4. I spent part of the AM at Costco in Kona. Nothing unusual going on there — except gas was the cheapest I’d seen it two years, $2.16/gallon at the Costco pumps.
    It was beautiful in Kona, BTW. About 65 overnight, lots of fluffy clouds this AM as temps rose to the 80’s. I heartily recommend a Kona vacation this winter to all Minnesotans. With Halemamau & Pu’u O’o outgassing there is more vog over there than usual, but you still can’t beat the weather. Tourism is way down so room rates are down as well.

  5. Mr. Shirt-
    If you do go to Kona, avoid Costco in the afternoon. It’s in an industrial area out in the desert between Kailua & the airport. Hot, windless, and shadeless.
    Kailua-town is another matter. $139/night for an ocean view room at the Outrigger Keauhou, including tax and parking.
    In the morning it is cool with the promise of warmth, the air is still, the view across the blue pacific is crisp and clear. Female joggers wearing next to nothing trot along the shoulder of Ali’i drive. More Malibu than Malibu, or so I’ve heard.
    I lived in Kona for fifteen years before I moved to Volcano. Kona makes for a better vacation, but Volcano makes for a better place to live.

    Great! a whole week of my wife saying “don’t break your neck, dear.” πŸ˜‰
