Shopping Guernica!

The incident involving the trampling to death of a Wal Mart employee in a New York store during the Thanksgiving shopping weekend captures the mood of the moment. As the economy weakens and the purses hollow out, American consumers, unable to shake off the long cultivated addiction to shopping, are finding solace in bargain shopping.

NYT has an excellent feature on the Wal Mart incident, comparing it to a "shopping Guernica"!
