One wonders what's going to happen to the Deep Fried Twinkie carts at the Santa Cruz Boardwalk....what am I going to clog my arteries with NOW? I'm pretty sad to hear that this classic treat is going to go by the wayside because of the economy so I guess it's a good thing that Clinton put one in a time capsule. I used to think that was ridiculous, …
