Off Topic: What Is Wrong With America

I did my best to keep politics off this blog. One way or another, i have managed to keep this about sports, with every blog I post.
And maybe I can even make this relate to sports.
Yes, I can.
Because greed is what this is about. Selfishness is what this is about. And sports has its share of greed and selfishness.
But ask yourself after reading this news article:
http://www.nytimes.com/2008/11/29/b
usiness/29walmart.html?_r=2
Who are we to say anyone else is selfish and greedy? When we are willing to kill someone to be the first person in line with an item on sale?
This is something that quite honestly shames me to call myself an American.
Folks, we really need to reexamine our priorities because, even though this death is an isolated event. the attitude that led to this death is not. This was not about inadequate security but about a group of shoppers so consumed with their own wants and desires that they transformed themselves into subhumanoids with despicable behavioral tactics and thoughts.
Have we really sunk this low as a society?
