What’s Up My Peeps?

If we’ve learned anything over the past few years, it’s that everything is political. Every TV show. Every family discussion. Science, truth, facts…everything. So I suppose it shouldn’t surprise you that just beneath the festive cellophane that lines your Easter basket lurks one of two billion annually-produced yellow, spongy, marshmallow, baby chickens that are loaded with sugar, corn syrup, gelatin, and yes, sadly, political and economic intrigue. At the center of the story is a lawsuit and a battle over pensions that could have a wider impact on the entire American retirement system. “The fight has featured a strike, Twinkies related bankruptcy, irreparably broken friendships, obscene T-shirts and a locked-up Peepsmobile.” From WaPo: Trouble in Candy Land.
