business news in context, analysis with attitude

Over the weekend, my son and his girlfriend came over for dinner (I made fresh pizza on the grill), and she had a question for me:  "I read that Campbell Soup is buying Rao's.  Does that mean they're going to screw up the sauce? I love that sauce!" 

Luckily, I had an answer for her, since the Wall Street Journal broached exactly that subject in its story about the acquisition.  Naturally, I also had a business lesson.
