    IDIOTS!!! DUMP K-Mart you dipshits! Sell Land’s End and get rid of the clothes department. Focus on tools, batteries, and appliances.

    Okay, that headline was hilarious.

    So, how long do we give Sears? One year? Two?

    “Rearranging the deck chairs of the Titanic” was my favorite line during my tenure as a software engineer. Now that I’m back to school, I use it much less often.

    Clearly, Sears has had a problem with too much support lately, so this will turn the company right around.

    Headline made me laugh.

    They’ll never make the next day delivery promise now…

    @fluiddruid: I don’t know how, but Sears
    still reports profits. So it may take longer than a year before they
    start using red pens and maybe even longer before they die. It’s not a
    question of if but when.

    200 of 5,000 headquarters employees? Seems like a huge amount of headquarters employees but probably combines the Kmart and Sears crews.
