Off Topic: Blockbuster Bids for Circuit City

So, Blockbuster’s genius CEO, Jim Keyes, wants to combine his struggling retail giant with Circuit City. WHY? It’s the kind of deal you can only justify if you’re coming off a major spring break bender. Otherwise, I don’t see how two blocks of lead can float. Why? First, Netflix and Amazon are, respectively, eating each company’s lunch. Second, a successful retail experience is now either big box (Wal-Mart) or deluxe (Apple).
