Good Black Friday to you

Reporter Andy Binion and myself will be out talking to shoppers today in Silverdale. Say hi to us. A protest is slated at the corner of Kitsap Mall Boulevard and Randall Way against war toys by the Ground Zero people. If you were one of the early birds this morning, post your experience here.

Not so much good news with Wal-Mart. This on the wire today:


Wal-Mart worker dies after shoppers knock him down

NEW YORK (AP) — Police say a Wal-Mart worker has died after being trampled by a throng of unruly shoppers shortly after the Long Island store opened Friday.

Nassau County police say the 34-year-old worker was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead at about 6 a.m., an hour after the store opened. The cause of death was not immediately known.

A police statement says a throng of shoppers “physically broke down the doors, knocking him to the ground.” Police also say a 28-year-old pregnant woman was taken to a hospital for observation.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc., in Bentonville, Ark., would not confirm the reports of a stampede during the day-after-Thanksgiving bargain hunting, but said a “medical emergency” caused them to close the store.
