NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- When I was asked to contribute a story that is fitting of Charles Dickens' masterpiece "A Tale of Two Cities," the first name that I thought of was Sirius XM (SIRI - Get Report).After Sirius rose to prominence by signing exclusive deals with high-profile talents including Howard Stern and securing rights to the National Football League and Major League Baseball, the financial crisis brought the company to its knees. With no one buying cars -- which Sirius needed to increase its satellite radio subscriptions -- bankruptcy seemed the last resort.
