EToys: ding dong the witch is dead.

For all the money they blasted through,
they couldn't build a web site that worked.

Part of me wishes I could be sympathetic...
but then I ask, "why?"

These companies were models of greed, arrogance, and excess.
Good riddance, I say.

It all gives new resonance to Network Solution's motto:
  "The dot com people [TM]"

Maybe they'll be next, eh.


Listen to music while you work.
