Wal-Mart: Putting The "Arg!" Back Into Bargain

I can only imagine how this makes us look overseas.

Wal-Mart Employee Trampled to Death
"Suddenly, witnesses and the police said, the doors shattered, and the shrieking mob surged through in a blind rush for holiday bargains. One worker, Jdimytai Damour, 34, was thrown back onto the black linoleum tiles and trampled in the stampede that streamed over and around him. Others who had stood alongside Mr. Damour trying to hold the doors were also hurled back and run over, witnesses said."
Then, there was this that happened a few months after I got to Japan.

Are we really that desperate for a discount?
