On Dasher! On Prancer! On Donner and…Porky?

The tragic Wal Mart Black Friday Riot reminded me of this story in the Bible:

A large herd of pigs was feeding on the nearby hillside. The demons begged Jesus, “Send us among the pigs; allow us to go into them.” He gave them permission, and the evil spirits came out and went into the pigs. The herd, about two thousand in number, rushed down the steep bank, into a nearby mall and got all their Christmas shopping done.”

    I went to the rush at at Target–my first experience as a customer with early AM-post-holiday shopping in more than 39 years (except when I worked retail, but that’s a horse of a different color).

    I like to think I would not have joined the trampling–and would probably been calling the police had I been in a ruckus like was seen in New York.
