After watching turning on my TV news station it seems that we are rapidly heading towards total domination. I'm talking retail here. Seems like lots of big name stores are shutting up shop. Goody's, Linen and things, and now Circuit City is going for good. I'm sure they will not be the only causalities of the financial crisis either as this year things aren't expected to get any better. After watching "Wall-E" recently it's almost like life imitating art. In the movie there is one corporation that owns everything, I think it's called Buy n Save, including the gas stations, spaceships and all the robots. As more and more stores bow out of the market place it is becoming easier to imagine a world where Wal-Mart makes cars, health insurance, banks and fast food chains. A very sad and painful world indeed.
Perhaps I have been watching a little too much Armageddon week on the History Channel.
