Black Friday, indeed. The Wal-Mart Stampede...

You can see the craziness in their eyes.


Well, these folks got a little more than they bargained for this morning.

It's incredibly sad, but some poor and I mean that in every sense of the word Wal-Mart employee was killed by a crowd of frenzied fans of low prices.

Sure some will claim it was just an accident. But when people are getting killed over $200 computers it's time to change our priorities.

Black Friday indeed.

Of course it's one more notation added to my Why I hate Wal-Mart list. Need more incentive to join me? Check out this movie.

Reason #23 I love Illeana Douglas

She's quirky.

She's is often the best part of a shEYEt show.

And I adored her in Ghost World.

And then there's her brilliant use of her celebrity status.

When the paps are invading her privacy she holds up typed and laminated messages to encourage some sort of change in the world.

I love it.

A great actress AND a smart lady.
