Cottage Economy (1822).
His lawyer famously claimed that Dan White murdered Harvey Milk because he was out of his head on Twinkies. Nevertheless, I never told anyone that they were foolish, let alone reprehensible, to eat Twinkies; perhaps because I didn't know (m)any such people? Folks who hug trees and deliver their babies at home tend to eat lentils rather than Twinkies. But I felt a twinge of indignation when I heard that something as popular as Twinkies had become unavailable since sometime last year because of the vagaries of global capitalism. Something about Hostess going bankrupt because they had over-extended themselves in consuming rival companies. But also something about eating preferences changing from bright yellow food-products to other equally engineered food-products with better marketing departments:
"Say, Chuck, let's put a star-burst on the packet saying <Healthy, tasty, fat free>"
"Gee whizz, Barf, that's a great idea for our new caramel popcorn".
Whatever the reason, Twinkies have gone from the shops. Although, the assets having been stripped from Hostess, from July Twinkies will be back on an assembly line owned by Apollo Global Management and Metropoulos & Co. Adults can therefore again choose to eat them. Me, I'll line up with foodie Michael Pollan "'Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants". That's diversity and that's democracy!
Both, in my opinion, mostly good.
