  1. First, here's the story.
  2. 18,500 workers will be laid off.
  3. One cat (or person?) is distraught.
  4. Immediately, the conversation turned political.
  5. vote for stupid see stupid things go on
  6. I have to wonder why the govt cant bail out Hostess, but can Chrysler!!
  7. Not enough twinkies and ho ho's were eliminated in the election.
  8. But, hey, you can look on the bright side with Friday's news, too, right?
  9. Sad for the workers but that's one step in the fight against obesity.
  10. Don't worry, you can still make your own Twinkies.
