Each day seems to bring a new economic challenge. From the crumbling housing market and financial crisis to a careening auto industry, you may believe that things could not get much worse for America.

The Twinkie, like the cockroach, is indestructible. I knew a potter in Santa Monica who placed a Twinkie inside a small vase and put it in a kiln just to see what would happen. A kiln runs at a temperature of about 2 billion degrees. After however long it takes to dry pottery (overnight?) Gene, the potter/artist, showed me the results of his experiment. There at the bottom of the vase was a golden -white glaze. The remains of the Twinkie.

A common foe is an excellent idea to combat the the current state of affairs we are in. But perhaps we should pick a less formidable one than the dreaded Twinkie.

If the Twinkie had "vaporized" and disappeared, to your luddite mind, it would have been "destroyed"?

Moron, you cannot "destroy" matter. Not any matter. You can get it to change structure or state, but it cannot be destroyed.

Put down your comic books and read a little science.

Gee, thanks for the science lesson, Mr. Wizard. But if you were a cognizant reader you would have noticed in the first sentence I acknowledge the Twinkie is indestructible. You also missed the use of hyperbole (2 billion degrees) to inject a soupcon of humor into the post.
Relax that sphincter, dude. Now, back to my Spiderman comic.
