Oh, good. After barely squeaking past having to declare bankruptcy, American Apparel chose Thomas Casey to be the new CEO of the struggling clothing company and Dov Charney's replacement. It's a good thing that Casey was available, too—until last month, he was tied up as the CFO of Blockbuster. You know, the video chain that just declared bankruptcy. That he was the head financial officer for. Good thing history doesn't repeat itself or anything. [NY Post]
