Well, if you haven't heard it yet, Circuit City is officially going out of business. While I never shopped there much, it starts to put into perspective what's going on in the economy.
While I couldn't relate so much to huge banks failing.. I never dealt directly with any of them.. it's much easier to relate to this. I've been there, bought things there, and even applied for a job there. It'll certainly be strange to have it closed. And with it, there go a few thousand jobs.
Dunno, just my thoughts.
