File this under the “Not to sound conceited, but I hate it when I’m right” department

Seven days ago, I discussed this year’s dismal economic outlook, and one snippet of that post was…

If something isn’t done now, the economy will slide further downward.  Retail stores that were in trouble before the Christmas shopping season are still in trouble, and we’re going to see a lot of them close this year.

And so it begins…

Bankrupt Circuit City Stores Inc., unable to work out a sale of the company, said Friday it will go out of business — closing its 567 U.S. stores and cutting 30,000 jobs.

If anyone wants to partake in gallows humor, we can have a betting pool over which retail outlets will close next.  Because unfortunately, there will be more.
