  1. BLOOMINGDALE, Ill. (AP) -- Suburban Chicago officials say a Wal-Mart employee has died after setting himself on fire outside the store where he worked.

    Randy Sater is a watch commander with the Bloomingdale Police Department. He says 58-year-old Larry Graziano of Carol Stream used lighter fluid to set himself on fire late Thursday.

    Sater says Graziano told police he "couldn't take it anymore." Police say bystanders tried to help, but Graziano fought them off.

    The Cook County Medical Examiner's office says Graziano was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead about 1 a.m.

    Dan Fogleman is a spokesman for Bentonville, Ark.-based Wal-Mart. He says Graziano was a 7-year employee who worked nights stocking shelves. He says Graziano had no reported personnel issues.
  2. Tune in tomorrow when Wall Mart announces they won't be selling lighter fluid, in addition there'll be new warning labels on hot dogs, marshmellows and candles and other things that burn.

    In other news, Wall Mart bystanders will under go a redesigned training. This new and enhanced emergency procedure will be named the Graziano's "where's the goddamn fire extinguisher" in memory of Sam's service at Wall Mart. God bless Sam.
