Smell of Bread Downtown May Dissipate

Hostess Strike Continues Despite Deadline For Closure
I covered strikers at local Hostess bakeries the night before the iconic brand announced it would cease operations.. Blaming, in part, the strike.  We watched as a final deadline passed with no deal.  It's sad knowing 18,500 employees nationwide may be unemployed for the holidays.  I feel certain rights to produce Twinkies, Ding Dongs, Wonder Bread, and other items will be gobbled up by another company.  Hopefully, the landmark bakery in downtown Memphis will cook again.
