Now up and running under new owners, Hostess says it plans to have Twinkies back on shelves this summer.
The company is aiming to have Twinkies in stores by July 15, but first the durable snack cakes must be retrieved from the underground vault in Pennsylvania where they’ve been stored since 1963.
Land of liberty: National Security Agency surveillance program leaker Edward Snowden continued his freedom tour of the world Sunday, flying from China to Russia, and he reportedly will seek asylum in Ecuador, where journalists can be jailed for insulting government officials.

Inside the bubble: If he’s able to catch some American TV tonight, Snowden might get a sneak preview of what’s in store for him in “Under the Dome,” a Stephen King yarn in which an entire town is trapped under an impenetrable shield.
Spoiler alert: Since the Wal-Mart that killed off the town’s small businesses is outside the bubble, everyone starves to death by Episode 10.
