I thought Woolworths was closed permanently. I was flabbergasted to learn that Woolworth's stores are currently in the UK. After reading the article posted on http://www.iht.com/articles/2008/12/22/europe/london.php, Woolworths announced that after unsuccessfully trying to find a buyer, it has to close its 807 stores leaving 27,000 people unemployed. The article also discusses Woolworths closing in the United States in 2001. But get this, they reinvented themselves as Footlocker! So long, Woolworths!

It was an unpleasant surprise this morning to watch the news. Rod Blagojevich was arrested for trying to sell the Senate seat. He was quoted to have said that he needed ....around $300,000. This is unbeleiveable! I don't think he would ruin his career on such a dumb statement. Let me hear from you! Do you believe that the Govenor is that corrupt and stupid?
