It looks like Hostess is in the process of Chapter 7 dissolving as a company, which means no more Twinkies, Ding Dongs or Ho-Hos. Though I think we really won’t be suffering for a lack of ding dongs and hoes.
I thought of an LGBTQMIALOLPLPLTH angle on why Hostess is too big to fail — Dan White, the San Francisco Supervisor (City Alderman) who assassinated fellow Supervisor Harvey Milk and San Francisco Mayor George Moscone, tried to use the Twinkie defense at trial. Twinkies and its parent company are too important in the narrative of the first openly LGBTQMIALOLPLPLTH elected politician in the country.
Dianne Feinstein, who became Mayor upon Moscone’s assassination, should be allowed to introduce the bailout bill in the Senate.
