DOORBUSTERS ARE NOT JUST FOR WALMART…

In the category of the-problem-is-not-just-Walmart,-Walmart-is-simply-the-greatest-offender-by-virtue-of-its-size I offer this video of a trampling -- thankfully with no reported serious injuries -- at a Target store in North Buffalo, New York. From Sociological Images:
There is an analysis to be made here, and it involves something about American materialism and the orgy of consumption that is called “Christmas.” But I would be happy if we would just stop calling sales “Doorbusters” given that, y’know, sometimes people actually break down doors and people die.
I agree, doorbuster ought to henceforth be retired from the marketing lexicon. Jeff Hess: Have Coffee Will Write.
