    Ya if you didn't put the bottom link, I was going to say Blockbuster is pretty much "Busted". I remember when I was doing work at the Chicago Board of trade when Blockbuster went public. OMG, I never saw so many tards yelling Blockbuster, buy it!!!!! The bankruptcy thing has been anticipated for months.

    Yes... I'm a little "late to the party", but were you aware, Doctor Death, that Blockbuster was renting video games? I wasn't.

    And this is a Chapter 11 restructuring, not a Chapter 7 liquidation. They might come out of this a much smaller but better company... I know, I know... unlikely, but still a remote chance.
