    The $.04/share cent stock is worthless. They plan to sell over the internet the leftovers and takebacks.

    Nope, they still have 567 stores open.

    Some private equity firms plus Blockbuster had expressed interest in purchasing Circuit City but the deal fell through when they couldn't get the financing arranged.

    This will eventually be the fate of GM. It may take 10 years, but no company with a balance sheet as bad as GM's can survive long-term.

    That is too bad. I think it was healthy for Best Buy to have the competition.

    eh, just all part of the economic cycle, right? survival of the fittest? some make it, some don't. Isn't that the mantra of capitalism?


    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    I'd really hate to see how many of our tax dollars it would take to keep GM afloat for 10 more years. We dropped $17 billion so they could make it 3 more months.

    As far as Circuit City, are there any stores in Iowa?
