Friendly's on the Front Page

Stephen Syre's Globe business column today noted the corporate battle between Friendly's founder Press Blake and San Antonio hedge fund manager Sardar Bilgari, on one side, and current Friendly's Ice Cream management on the other. (Ed. note: as a long-time resident of Wilbraham, I am perhaps more cognizant of the story than others might be.) Blake is 92 and Bilgari is 29. Talk about strange bedfellows!
