The pounding kept coming, the pounding of hundreds of thousands of feet, boots, heels, and bodies on the chest, heart, lungs and skull of 34 year old temporary Walmart worker Jdimytai Damour. The relentless pounding was coming from the feet of over 2000 humans in pursuit of an Xbox, a plasma screen TV, a $2.00 dvd. In pursuit of that deal they walked, ran, stomped, and charged over the body of Jdimytal until he was suffocated.

I started my 3 day journey on the Greyhound bus early Sunday afternoon. I was taking the bus from San Francisco to get to the US Social Forum in Atlanta with Seniors Organizing Seniors. Along the way, I noticed the death of small town America.

There are very few family farms left in middle America. Farms have died. They have been killed by the corporations. Main St. America, too is dead. There were vacant houses and bulidings for miles. Signs everywhere read for rent or sale.
