    It's the same company that bought out Mrs. Baird's bread in Fort Worth, which had been a strong local business, a few years ago. Apparently, it's a pretty substantial business.

    Dallas it was in Dallas. And when growing up over at my Grandmothers the smell of baking bread....oh man I miss that. There also use to be a train that ran along there. As kids we'd hop it and flatten pennies.

    I also miss the Dr Pepper factory on Mockingbird.

    Times change.

    They had a huge facility in Fort Worth as well- right off I-30 after passing through the mixmaster- I distinctly remember the smell.

    The one in Dallas was at Central and Mockingbird. Use to go to the factory store as a kid with my mom. Took tours of the factory as a grade school kid.

    Wasn't that smell GREAT!

    I personally would like to see free Traitors chased out of this country. Considering how much opposition there is to offshoring now, it may in fact happen.
    Business majors are inferior in intelligence. Glorifying such no-talent brown-noses with their generic degrees has filled them with the megalomania in which any simple-minded tactic is justified as long as it makes more money than doing it the honest way, which these low-IQ scum are incapable of. Putting inferior people in superior positions has forced them to get by the only way such ambitious imbeciles can. People as stupid as they aredo have to outsource to sweatshops; it's not just greed, it's incompetence. They are anti-American because they didn't get their jobs the old American Way, starting from the bottom and working their way up. Instead, they start out in management after spending four years in college learning nothing relevant to their job, and especially nothing that would make them more informed than someone who had worked at the company those four years. Rodney Dangerfield in Back to School was right on the money about how real businessmen doing it the American Way made money.

    One time passing thru the Big D, there is a really cool little dinner club where they perform plays across the street from the old DP factory called "The Pocket Sandwich Theater." A lot of fun. Silly.

If I had 3 extra mouths to feed, then the options are somewhat like having the option of getting your head cut off by a lawnmower or a guillotine.

    I just read 11/19 @ 4:37 p.m. that Judge Drain ordered mediation between Hostess and the Baker's Union. Apparently the fat lady is in the wings waiting to sing, or not.

The rich didn't like such class-climbing and, for no other reason, imposed this class-biased indentured servitude in order to allow advancement only to those who would make a permanently damaging and unnecessary sacrifice to serve under their preppy classmates.

    So, if I understand you correctly, you're saying that cart-pushers do create jobs . . . in 15 or 20 years.
