Headline of the hour

This is simply beyond outrageous:

Black Friday Worker Rescued From Canal After Losing Control Of Car Due To Exhaustion

A 36-year-old Target employee drove her car into a 20-foot deep canal after working the night shift on Black Friday.

Florida police said the woman lost control of her vehicle due to exhaustion, reports Miami New Times.

The woman is unable to swim, but managed to call police from her cell phone and explain the situation as she and the car began to sink, notes NBC Miami.

Palm Beach County sheriff's deputy Frank Mayo dove into the canal to save the unidentified woman, reports The Palm Beach Post.

When is our society going to stop this appalling absurdity? I want to assert that everyone who shops on Black Friday is complicit in this sort of thing.
