So I like to gripe about consumerism. Here you go. 2,000 WalMart shoppers, 1 dead WalMart employee. The article does not mention how much merchandise the shoppers purchased, which is oddly important to this story. That's how we can determine WalMart's value of a human life. Boy, I bet its a few hundred bucks.
On a COMPLETELY unrelated note, I did not trample anyone on black friday, but still managed to pick up Left 4 Dead, along with three other friends, and since then, we've been doing LAN parties to fight off the zombie hoard. Oh fuck it rocks.
