Crunchy Cheetos vs Cheeto Puffs
The crunchy, cheesy, classic snack food that will leave an orange residue on your fingers after you eat them: Cheetos. What do you picture when you think of a Cheeto?

In Response to President Hanno
Recent communications reveal division over the nature of our crisis and the role of leadership.
