I know I will endure the wrath of many contributors to “Talkback” by writing this: Phil Schoonover, who left Circuit City as chairman, president and CEO on Monday, is not entirely to blame for the chain’s problems.
Circuit City experienced years of questionable decision-making before Schoonover got there in 2004 and took the top jobs in 2006.

More on Circuit City will be posted Monday, Sept. 29, when its quarterly financial is scheduled to be released.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
