Made In The U.S.A.

Circuit City Sayonara

From CNN Money: “Bankrupt electronics retailer Circuit City Inc. said Friday it has asked for court approval to close its remaining 567 U.S. stores and sell all its merchandise. The company said it has 34,000 employees.”

I read news like this and think various things: “Those poor people losing their jobs!” and “What does that say about the state of our economy?” and so on. No matter how much I want the empathy to win out, my thoughts quickly change to, “I bet this is the perfect opportunity to buy some discounted stuff.”

Does that make me a capitalist pig?

I wonder what percentage of Circuit City stuff is actually Made In The USA?
