There is a write-up in our local paper about Hershey. Here are some of the
things they touched on...

- Hershey's new $112M computer system is fouling up deliveries
- Mars and Nestle expect insreased sales
- No Resse's cups or Milk Dud's for trick or treaters this year
- 3rd quarter earnings will drop 16% per share
- Hershey might end up missing as much as $100M in sales for 4th quarter

There was no mention of the type of computer system they installed...
