#7 They're buying the brand not necessarily the factories. You got to wonder how lawyers can advertize on TV so much and avoid this wonderful opportunity to create new 'injury' law against the agents that doomed people's livelihoods. If you can sue for a disease for which you have no symptoms, and thus no real injury, why can't you sue those who took your job away by reckless and willful practice?

#8 EinT, Beef Steak rye bread was my favorite for many years starting probably 40 years ago. Large slices great flavor and caraway seeds. Made wonderful sandwichs; roast beef with swiss, lettuce & tomato, etc. good stuff.
