The Hostess bidder not mentioned

Reuters is reporting that Walmart and Kroger are interested in buying Hostess Brands out of bankruptcy along with nearly two dozen more.

Nowhere, however, is anyone mentioning Don Sheridan of Massachusetts. Sheridan sent a hand-written letter on lined paper to the Judge in the case in which he expressed an interest in buying the company in total from Hostess Brands.

Hostess Brands entered bankruptcy earlier this year and after a short strike by bakers management filed and was granted a motion to liquidate the company.

Now comes Sheridan, who said this is more evidence of the failure of unions, failure of government and failure of education.

“Of course, I’ve come to the conclusion that bankruptcy proceedings have become nothing more than a means to employ stupid lawyers and stupid judges instead of the means of teaching stupid people hard lessons in stupid management,” Sheridan wrote the court.

He looks forward to discussing a proposal, so much so, he said he sent copies of his letter to the International Teamsters Union and of course U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts.

The Hostess closure cost 50 workers their jobs in Bridgeport, and about 150 jobs in other Connecticut communities.
