    Sun Capital May Buy Hostess

    The buyer wants to maintain Hostess as an ongoing concern and thus needs employees to operate the factories.  My guess is that this mediation is just a bridge to get workers back at production before the company gets bought.

      Sun Capital has expressed interest in buying and maintaining the union presence.  Metropolous and Company wants to buy (no word about the union).  Bimbo is sniffing out the situation, and they run a lot of UFCW factories in the US.

      It would be nice to peel off Hostess' current owners, whose business strategy appears to be that of the tapeworm.
