Dear DMC,

I’m not sure whether admitting my fondness for Twinkies, Ho Hos, Cupcakes, and Ding Dongs will jeopardize my DMC membership. I hope it won’t.

I’ve been following the outcome of Hostess Bakeries — I just now heard some breaking news about what’ll be happening to the various parts of the company.

Dear Joe,

This is interesting indeed — impressive to see business and government move so quickly. Some of our members who are lawyers (many of our members are lawyers) tell us bankruptcies usually take much longer to be resolved.
