In 2000, shareholders approved changing the name of RadioShack's parent 
company – Tandy Corporation – to RadioShack Corporation to focus attention on 
one company with one vision: To become the most powerful one-stop shop to 
connect people to the wonders of modern technology. The company's New York 
Stock Exchange symbol officiallly became "RSH" on May 31 of that year.

should understand what an expensive proposition it is to cohabitate with
a narcissistic woman built like a stripper.  --  Tony Woodlief
