2007-08-22 Someone knew...
I am sure many people did see what was coming, but perhaps for fear of losing their jobs did not speak out.

This points to the need in some industries for anonymous whistleblowing.  It can also be abused, obviously, by individuals wanting to smear competitors, but the more concrete the information is the more likely it is of value.

If anyone knows about something like this before the fact, or if you have information to share after the fact, please submit it here.  (you can find most businesses with Tucson branches in the Business Directory).  The more transparent things are the fairer it is to all."
