Another Big name Falls: K-Mart Crumbles

K-Mart, whose shares traded as high as US$20 in mid 1998 filed for bankruptcy yesterday as its shares dropped to US$0.69. This is the biggest retail bankruptcy in the US.

K-Mart Australia is only partially affected since the local arm is a venture by Coles-Myer.

Looks like being big isn't a guarantee anymore.....

Another big name falls... looks like being blonde and busty isnt the recipe either...

Mariah Carey has been dumped by Virgin/EMI records, with a payout totalling $94 million after her breakdown and the flop of her latest album.

I'm not fussed about macca's, although it's good after a big night out. Coke cannot go anywhere though, need it for bourbon everything else just doesn't taste right....
