Cold Comfort

I read today that Circuit City stores was unable to find a buyer and is going to liquidate and go out of business. Considering how badly they have treated me and Lisa, including making up laws (hint: US states can't have copyright laws, so don't claim that "Oregon Copyright Law" prohibits something), I'll say it couldn't happen to a more deserving company. Electronics retailers need to learn that hiring low-paid, unskilled workers to staff their stores is not a way to keep customers. If I wanted to have no advice or help, I'd order stuff over the internet and pay less for it.
