Rick claims victory over third richest man in the world

The Wall Street Journal ran a little story the other day mentioning that the last remaining CompUSA stores will finally be put out of their misery.

I really hated CompUSA. I worked there as a 16 year old, and some of you may remember me loudly predicting the company's quick demise. Specifically, I angered the assistants to the assistant manager's assistant assistants (in other words supervisors to me) by stating specifically "CompUSA will be bankrupt or destroyed by the time I graduate from college."

Now, I didn't foresee Carlos Slim coming in and wasting $2 billion dollars of his own money to keep the whole mess on life support, so my prediction ended up being late by three years, but I'll claim victory anyway.

As it stands, the next month may be the only time I recommend you shop at CompUSA, since you may be able to get close out deals on crappy, outdated software.
