OK OK.  I just could not resist.  Its like trying to drive by a car 
wreck without looking.

Anyhow, I just *happened* to be in the neighborhood of my local Circuit 
City and it just seemed a good idea to drop by and see if I were wrong 
and bargains were awaiting us all.

People were lined up 10 deep like sheep to pay for their newfound 
bargains.  Most were at a 10% discount and no recourse, no refunds etc. 
  Why would anyone choose to buy with this set of rules for only 10%?  I 
could not find a single bargain in the place.  Maybe my eyesight is 
failing but in the end, I just left without buying anything, nothing at 
all.  I can do much better dumpster diving, and of course, Hamvention.
