    This is the last thing newspapers want to hear, but another major national advertiser might be going under. Circuit City's liquidating the rest of its stores, with about 35,000 put out of work.

    I'd link up, but MSNBC doesn't have an active link yet.

    Ouch. I preferred Best Buy, but this still sucks for papers that have CC as an advertiser.

    Which is everyone, right? CC was consistent as anything with their Sunday circulars.

    Epic fail.

    Shit. Sucks for many, many reasons. 35,000 people out of work. Damn.

    Not much there now, but Circuit City is a Richmond-based company, so they'll probably update throughout the day.

    Does this mean we should all run out and buy plasma TV's at 75 percent off?

    No apostrophe needed to make something plural, Zag.

    One of the first stores to close (in the first round of cuts) was near me. Once they sold off all the merchandise, they started selling everything else. The displays, shelving, carts, even the fire extinguishers were on sale. Quite fascinating, in a really sad way.

    Delete the question mark from the slug. Circuit City has confirmed that it is liquidating.
