No Wonder

Strike another blow to the halcyon days of our youth. In Washington State, the bakery that makes Wonder Bread for Washington and Oregon is shutting down. We didn't really eat Wonder Bread growing up, but I can't imagine a childhood without the fortified pasty white slabs of sandwich fare. What's next? Tootsie Rolls? Life Cereal?

You can always come to the State Fair and eat a deep-fried Twinkie.

Hmmm. I didn't know this. I, too, grew up with Wonder Bread. In fact, I used to watch Howdy Doody and Buffalo Bob will tell us that "Wonder Bread builds strong bodies twelve ways." I didn't know what that meant, but there were colorful circles on the wrapper which looked like balloons, so I knew it had to be great stuff. Mom wouldn't buy it, tho. Too expensive.
