    not for recipes.

    no tip, no rec, no repub

    To the Labor & Union group.

    Our fellow workers are losing their jobs, the last thing we should be saying to them is, "no problem, we'll just make our own."

    This diary is in very poor taste at this time.

    This is the fighting age, put on your fighting clothes.

          On the day the company kicks you to the curb and blames you, to the media, for firing you and destroying the company... the idea that someone is providing a way for people to make their own, so that the remaining assets of the company are worth even less... would make me smile, were I one of those employees.

          Leave the brands and the brand name toxic. Leave people empowered to make the kind of product they lost--only better--so that no one will even want to buy them if someone brings back the twinkie.

          Ah, now that's the kind of revenge that might make being fired at least feel a wee bit better.
