I'm frankly appalled at the disgusting behavior of so many shoppers trying to get their hands on a limited-edition shoe released this morning. Let the headlines speak for themselves (click any of them to go to the linked news report):
Race for New Air Jordan Sneakers Turns Ugly at a Metro Atlanta Mall
Crowd waiting for new Air Jordans clashes with police
WITNESS: Fight breaks out at Jefferson Mall over sneakers
Mall Gunfire Over New Jordan Shoes
Shoppers Waiting For Shoe Release Riot, Break Into Mall
So much for the "season of peace and goodwill", at least as far as these particular representatives of the underclass are concerned! I wonder how many of them will recall, much less celebrate, the reason for the season?
(On the other hand, perhaps it's a good thing that mistletoe is in very short supply this Christmas, thanks to the drought in Texas. If those idiots tried to kiss each other under the mistletoe, given the purportedly lethal mythological origins of the custom, they'd probably start a riot and cause mass casualties!)
