Black Friday is aptly named
I wish merchants would stop using the term "door-busters" when describing their holiday sales. When I hear those words, all I can think of is that poor Wal-Mart employee out on Long Island who was crushed to death a few years ago when a frenzied mob of shoppers "busted" down the door he was standing behind.
For that man’s family, there’s no better description of that day than "Black Friday."
