If they would stamp the word "green" somewhere on the Twinkie label and yammer on about reducing their carbon footprint, then jack the price up to $3.85 per twinkie, they could sell a gazillion Twinkies a year at Whole Foods alone.

That's the new B-school model they teach.

Whole Foods wouldn't be stupid enough to carry that crap, and their customers wouldn't buy it.

It's obvious that riding season is gone and argument season is in full swing.

Hell with it... I'm gonna go test-ride my new heated gear.

Really, I mean really. Hostess filed for bankruptcy twice in the last 10 years. They haven't changed their products in the last 40 years, and wonder bread sucks.

They are great at running their company.

Puleeze!! Enough railing about the economy, politics, unions, yada yada on a normally fun thread in the Rockies. We had one good thread going about politics centered around the election issues, but can we just keep this thread for fun stuff? For instance, Johnny Depp and his bike?

Whatever happened to being able to make decisions? Think for yourself and live with the consequences of your actions?

Seems like everyone wants to just be hand-fed whatever's "best for them", as decided by some dictator.

That boiling-frog analogy seems appropriate here...
