iBook Sale Erupts in Chaos, Stampede

Richmond Times-Dispatch:

Chaos erupted this morning at the Richmond International Raceway as thousands of people stampeded through the gates in a rush to buy iBook laptop computers for $50 each.

Several people were injured as others trampled them outside a warehouse where the 4-year-old Apple laptops were being sold. None of the injuries appeared to be serious.

For $50 iBooks, I guess I would have trampled someone, too.
