More Nike Shoe Riots in Orlando and Maryland

"Nike canceled the All-Star shoe release after Thursday's near riot at Orlando's Florida Mall."

"A large crowd is waiting outside a Maryland mall to buy a new Nike basketball shoe and authorities say one person has been arrested." Scroll down for story.

Again, who are these people, willing not only to pay over $200 for sneakers but willing to harm others for the privilege?

Is this a sign of an impoverished people? Only impoverished in their values and priorities.

Have we so relinquished the need for people to prioritize their expenditures that they can spend on wants rather than necessities?

What is wrong with the culture that would produce such an obsession with foolishness?
