People being trampled to death in the pursuit of discounted consumer products the day after Thanksgiving has become almost as much of a distinctly American tradition as Thanksgiving itself, but this year’s Black Friday seems to be, at this point anyway, a relatively tame one, compared to past Black Fridays at least.
