This Yahoo! Finance list (or maybe it's from U.S. News and World Report) of 15 companies that might not survive 2009 is pretty sobering, although I don't have any kind of knowledge on how accurate this list might or might not be. I do notice that they don't list Yahoo! itself; I know they've been making cuts themselves. And I'm glad we cashed in those free rental days from Thrifty Car Rental in Anchorage last year.
