In Memory of Jdimytai Damour

For those who don't know, Jdimytai Damour was the 34 year-old man who was trampled to death last Friday (11/28) at a Wal-Mart store in Long Island, NY. He had gotten the job through a temp agency and was working there part time through the holidays to earn some extra money. Apparently he was a huge movie buff.

I never met Mr. Damour. But the story of his death this past weekend was one of the most tragic and sad things I've heard about recently. Trampled to death by a bunch of careless customers who wanted to spend money. It makes me sick even though it gives us a snapshot of just how screwed up our country has become.
