The only thing wrong with a perfect ride to work is that you end up at work.

All you health food nuts can relax, your twinkies are safe. A Mexican company is interested in buying the company. Now if we're real lucky mabye one of the cartels that deal in non pharmaceutical meds will run it for you, then you won't have to worry about unions or management, cause they will look after everything

They're made under license in Canada too. Maybe we could start a black market Twinkie empire? Triumphforever? You can manage the East Coast, me the West Coast. Haggis can have the prairies if he behaves.

Now THAT is the real reason for the decline in union membership.

I remember that commercial, actually. [shivers]

Too late. Natives already have a package deal at your local reservation; pack of "tax-free" smokes and a twinkie for under two bucks.

Seems I was a little mistaken. It's the FORMER CEO who tripled his salary, but this was still while the company was filing for bankruptcy. The current CEO (who is on 125 000 per month) was brought in to sort the company out, but it appears he was too late.

Still, it's a sordid affair.

I'm sure some of you will dismiss this altogether, as the source is clearly biased. But there ya go.

How can one be expected to live on $125,000/month? ;-)
