    woe is my @ss...
    quote:
    NEW YORK (Reuters) - After a recession-plagued holiday season that punctuated the rapid decline of U.S. retailers since the Sept. 11 attacks, the first national retail chain to file for bankruptcy protection was the Museum Company Inc., a seller of art-related gift items... Museum Corp. said it would pursue strategic alternatives and believed that it would be able to restructure its operations and debt and propose a plan of reorganization.

    Full Story: Museum Company's Woes Signal Trouble That's two of my top ten performers in one week.

    Maybe I should check the rest of my top ten list... it's probably a good list of stocks to short...

    sigh... yeah, and I've got one section of my site where I'm going to risk not getting paid by leaving their links up. I don't have a backup, I can't find a back up and I have good position in several places (Valentine's day stuff). I'd rather risk not getting paid then trash my site's rep my not having the stuff there...

    But after Feb 14th, they will be gone gone gone... disappearing as we speak...

    This stinks! I can't tell you how many merchants I replaced since Christmas. This one hurts I have an entire page for this company mainly for stained glasss items. Off we go on a search for a replacement. I spent today removing fingerhut from one site, still have to remove them from another site. If anyone knows of a good merchant for tiffany or stained glass items could you let me know?
    Thanks

    Hey Cedric,

    It's not fun to be on the get screwed end is it...you can bet you won't see any money from the Museum guys.

    We could say you have been crucified on a cross of rusty nails by the museum guys.

    Did they do it literally or was the saying a metaphor? You do know what a metaphor is, I hope.

    Now multiply your dismay at losing money you thought you had made by over 100 and see how you would feel about Steve Meeser.

    Oh yeah, I had started pulling their links over the WhenU issue, but then they severed their relationship with WhenU and I put them all back. sigh...
