They may be re-invented in some way with new ownership down the road but until then, , , , sad times.

Get the picture, it is indeed a mess.

After seeing your reply, you are very optimistic in saying they have a good chance to survive based in the "baggage" you have mentioned. I sense something will rise from the dust in a few years.
