If you thought my recent blogs on the evils of Wal-Mart were over the top, why don’t you ask Patricia VanLester? She was knocked unconscious and trampled by shoppers rushing into Wal-Mart at 6 a.m. the day after Thanksgiving to buy $29 DVD players.
VanLester had a seizure and will be hospitalized at least a week. But never fear, Wal-Mart officials did call her at the hospital and offer to put a DVD player on hold for her. They also expressed disappointment, and hope she comes back “as a shopper.”
