It is not unusual for companies to use bankruptcy protection to help them survive the tough economic times.
But this year has seen some unexpected names from the corporate world seek protection from their creditors.
As Lee Cowan reports, it is a record year for red ink.

((When US Airways landed in bankruptcy court last week -- it did a lot more than make other airlines nervous. It set a new low for corporate America.

(vo: Worldcom, Pacific Gas $ Electric etc.)

From telecommunications giants-- to public utilities -- the number of US companies seeking protection from their creditors is now officially off-the-charts-BAD.

(GRAPHICS:)

So far this year, nearly $270 billion dollars in corporate assets are tied up in court.
Three of the largest bankruptcies EVER -- WorldCom, Global Crossings, and K-Mart -- were filed in the last 8 months alone.

(NARR:)

Nevertheless -- experts warn:

(SOT/JOHN COFFEE, COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY LAW)

"Bankruptcy is not death."

(NARR)

While corporate corruption -- and questionable accounting practices have grabbed the headlines -- John Coffe believes most companies filing for bankruptcy are honestly struggling to fix honest wrongs.

(SOT/JOHN COFFEE, COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY LAW)

"Failure can occur for any number of reasons in a competitive capitalistic system without there being fraud necessarily involved."

(NARR:)

Take Malden Mills for example -- a textile company outside Boston.

NAT/SOT FIRE



(NARR:)

A devastating fire burned the family-owned mill to the ground.
It's 70 year old CEO -- Aaron Feuerstein -- could have taken the insurance money and run. He didn't.

(SOT/AARON FEUERSTEIN, CEO MALDEN MILLS)

"It would be the wrong thing to do to pull out because I could get labor cheaper elsewhere."

(NARR:)

So he kept paying his out-of-work employees while the new mill was being built. His act of generosity cost him $25 million dollars -- and forced him into bankruptcy.

(SOT/AARON FEUERSTEIN, CEO MALDEN MILLS)

"What we're doing is building our loyalty and trust amongst the people who make the quality for us. It IS the right thing to do."

(NARR:)

Indeed. His workers returned the favor -- and tomorrow morning -- Malden Mills will file a new set of papers with the court -- to EMERGE from bankruptcy -- in tact.

(SOT/SCOTT ZEVITAS, WORKER)

"We care about our jobs, we care about the company. Because he helped us we want to do the same back, ya know?

NAT/SOT UNITED



(NARR:)

It's more complicated for giants like United Airlines -- who could file THEIR bankruptcy protection within weeks.

(COWAN ON CAM:)

"But, what companies like Malden Mills proved - is bankruptcy can function the way it's supposed to -- just as long as the company's morals aren't bankrupt too. Lee Cowan, CBS News, New York."))

Thousands turned out for a glimpse of the native son they fear they may not see again. vo: But in the prayer at the end of his homily John Paul II entreated the Virgin Mary to give him strength...as he put it...

(Meeting small boy/praying various)

vo: The Pope's visit was filled with sentimental moments. And throughout it all...the ailing...aging John Paul II seemed to draw energy from the throngs who came to adore and cheer him. o/c: Before leaving this afternoon the Pope will take a helicopter flight over his birthplace of Wadowice...an official Vatican request that may have been made in case he didn't come back...not a view John Paul II now seems to share... ))
