  •  I encourage you to write that book! (3+ / 0-)

    Approach it as a journalist with a point of view, like Barbara Ehrenreich or Joe Bageant. Go through their entire history, then tell the stories of the mismanagement, the lying, paying huge bonuses while going through bankruptcy. Interview everyone you can. This would make a great case study of how piss-poor many companies are managed these days. Companies that were built on hard work and smart business sense are hollowed out by greedy, short-sighted, narcissistic bastards who couldn't properly manage a kiddie pool. You probably won't make much money on the book, but at least the real story would be told, instead of the anti-union mythology they are currently spinning. Call it something catchy like:

    HOSTESS
    The Ding Dongs Who Brought Down America's Bakery
