A sad day in America

I follow financial stuff like taxes, stocks, and real estate. Some of it’s kind of boring. But I do pay attention when ever a company that has been around a long time has financial problems. 

And I’m sad to report that the maker of Twinkies, Hostess Brands, has filed for bankruptcy.

This American icon, which Peter from Family Guy proclaimed as the ONLY food that can survive a nuclear holocaust and Bill Clinton placed in a time capsule, is falling victim to Yuppies with their fruit smoothies and power bars.

My advice: Ignore the government watchdogs who want to control every aspect of your life. And tune out the chants coming from the low-fat yogurt crowd.

Go out right now and pick up a box of Twinkies … what the heck, get two. This might be your last chance!

Then kick back and enjoy one of those snacks with the mysterious cream filling that epitomizes 150 empty calories with 4.5 grams of fat that was good enough Buffalo Bob Smith and became an American legend.  

Best wishes,
