    So, Wal-Mart will get another *Black Eye* for not providing adequate crowd-control measures...

    People will BUY - Order, however, must be kept, by force if necessary.

    Sad, but true ... on sale days like this, people have the mindset "It's all about me" and could care less who else gets in their way or who they injure to be "first in line" for the overpriced Wii.

    Personally, I stay away from shopping "mauls" like this ... I hate crowds and long lines anyway ... I am mostly an armchair shopper - do 80% of my shopping (except for food) online. It is delivered within days and sometimes much cheaper than if I had bought it in the retail store.

    I went to the Walmart where I live and believe me. It was either get out
    of the way or get ran over and that was yesterday when I went. The ones
    who ride those motorized wheel chairs there you really have to watch out
    for or get ran over. One guy was going one way and looking another.
    Maybe a pretty girl. Some guys are that desperate! Rudenesss is one
    factor in this madness. I do my shopping early like in october or early
    november after halloween. The crowds are not so thick. I just went to
    get some simple groceries and something for this bad cold I cought and
    can't get rid of it.

    If more people did their shopping and got their education and did work on-line there would be less road congestion, less oil being used, more time for family and friends, and more time for life as opposed to sitting in traffic jams, sitting in a cubicle, and all the nonsense that goes on in offices all over the world. The future will be that of tele-commuting instead of flying to different corners of the globe to attend meetings.

    I don't blame Walmart in the slightest I'm afraid, rather I blame those people who suffered an attack of selfishness and avarice.
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.
    —Albert Einstein.

    Indeed, CT. I was talking with one of my colleagues today about how people treat each other. She is HUGELY pregnant (due in three weeks) and told me that she offered another pregnant lady her seat on the train because no one else would stand up.
