Brandi Kruse has an explanation and says change is on the horizon in Seattle. // ROSS COLORED GLASSES: Turns out bakery union members were right -- Hostess was a terribly run company. For months, company execs used funds intended for employee pensions to help run the sagging business.

Luke is amazed at how much milk the average American drinks. And a Pasco man is refusing to take down a Christmas decoration that his neighborhood association says violates its rules.
