    Hostess Brands, LLC, a new company with new owners, announced plans to re-open its bakery this summer in Columbus, Ga.

    The state-of-the-art baking facility will resume production on a variety of Hostess snack products, including Twinkies, Cup Cakes, HoHos and Ding Dongs, WTVM reports.

    I think I have proved you factualy wrong on a number of times. You fall in the catagory of educated idiot. If in fact you have gotten beyond the fourth grade as you have claimed a number of times. And by most on this site I think I’m correct yet again.

    Reruns of the Simpsons on FNC would draw twice the audience of anything on MSNBC.

  • JusThaFacs

    Folks are turning away from Chrissy Matthews faster than the speed of light which I always thought would be impossible for anything to be faster than the speed of light. BSnbc is dropping out of sight which is a very good thing. It proves that lying doesn’t work. All I can say is don’t let the door hit you in your collective arses on the way out, msLSD. What a pitiful excuse for a news organization. America is better off with them whiners gone!!!

    @ Coffee Steve.

    You do not have to wait until later this summer to get “Hostess” like choc cupcakes.

    If you have a Tom Thumb, Safeway, Randels et al. they have a store brand called “The Snack Artist”, tastes almost like the Hostess cupcakes. Last week $1.29 for a box of six this week $1.66 a box.

    Wheels are coming off, and they should, no one on either side of the political spectrum should defend this any longer. People are Dead and injured for life and it could be due to a failure of our Government.

    *AP: Boston Bombing Suspect Was Added to CIA Terrorist Database 18 Months Ago

    New information emerged Wednesday from U.S. officials that the name of one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects had been added to a U.S. government terrorist database long before the explosions. At the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, more than 4,000 mourners paid tribute to a campus police officer who authorities say was gunned down by the suspects.

    In a striking new development, U.S. officials said the name of the dead suspect, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was added by the CIA to a terrorist database 18 months ago. The officials spoke to The Associated press on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the ongoing case.
