Goodbye Borders

I don't want to see anyone lose their jobs.  But this, as with the demise of Circuit City, could have been avoided.  I can't remember the last time I bought a book a book at Borders.  Usually I went there to look at things that interested me, came home, and then found them cheaper online.  The same with their CD's, which were ridiculously overpriced.
Circuit City had the same problem, but there's was more of a customer service one.  It was poor, and they paid for it.  Borders had good service, but they were overpriced.  In this day and age, people are looking for bargains, and Borders failed to deliver.
So, I'm sad people will lose their jobs.  Let's not blame the workforce.  Blame the suits.
