Does anyone know of a watch list of retailers that could go "belly-up" (e.g. Linen and Things, Circuit City, etc.) in 2009?

(As a former mortgage banker, I know in that 2007 and 2008 there was a list of mortgage companies that were on the "watch list" of companies that could easily go under. Looking backwards it turns out that this list was pretty accurate. Does anyone know of such a lsit for retailers? I think that I read recently that it is predicted that some 73,000 stores will close across the U.S. over the next 12 months.

We had a thread about that a little while ago:

I think there are a couple of Retail Implode-O-meter websites out there.

Try Google.
