Black Friday Gets Darker

I saw this sotry entitled:
As store worker died, shoppers kept on
on the front of today's N&O. It really saddened me.

The Friday after thanksgiving supposedly marks the official beginning of the Christmas season. Even in the secular understanding of the holiday, it is supposed to be a time of goodwill and glad tidings. This year, Black Friday captured neither goodwill or glad tidings. However, it captured our greed, selfishness, and self-obsession quite well.


There is also a good post HERE by Neale Donald Walsh on Beliefnet.
