Numerous "business" reporters are predicting that MB will be sold to some "hedgeRead More fund", who could care less about the customers or the employees. The hedge investors will milk it the business for all they can and then sell a few locations and close all the others. This is the Bain Capital model. You know, Bain Capital of Mitt Romney fame.

@Rick- I think they need all the shareholders to approve that sale and I don't see that happening. IRead More think Artie S underestimated the impact of this, however he obviously knew enough to not name himself CEO but rather two outsiders that can take the media hit on this. If I were the two CEO's I would resign. They can't recover from this. Perhaps Artie T should have just put in a recurring dividend payment to shareholders to provide them with some liquidity and maybe that would have kept. them happy and he could continue to run the business.
This guy deserves his bad reputation.

West Heff Hobo: Even the Supreme Court has ruled that "blue laws" are constitutional.Read More State governments not only have the right to regulate businesses, they have the obligation to do so. What I find so disturbing is that people believe their freedom is somehow being eroded because of regulations such as this. Are you suggesting that every time a blue law is repealed that we are somehow more free? Do you just want the consumers to consume and the producers to produce with absolutely no restrictions at all? (And please, no more about religion)

Just because stores sell foods that are bad for you does not mean you have to buy them or eat them.Read More Folks may want to educate themselves on how to have a healthy diet.
