New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - October 8, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas New Texas October Andy Rooney is puzzled by fast food inions Editor and General Manager Managing Editor FINANCIAL Mike Royko Andy Rooney America loves eating junk food According to an article in Fortune a marketing survey shows that people eat more popcorn in the DallasFort Worth area than anywhere If 1 lived in either Dallas or Fort Id resent always being slashed DallasslashFort but Id feel even worse about being as the place that eats the most Popping corn over a fire in a basket made of metal screening used to be one of the things kids did to amuse themselves on cold winter nights before they had While the corn was they melted butter on the They poured the butter over the popped corn in a big bowl and then sprinkled more salt than was good for The butler made the salt to the There was a certain homemade class to popcorn then like so many popcorn has lost social popcorn is made in one those glass fishbowLs in the lobby a seedy movie house and then covered with greasy fake The Fortune article lists Atlanta as the place where people buy the most aspirin and It would be easy to infer that Atlantans have more headaches and upset stomachs than people in other cities but that doesnt necessarily Some people just take a Jot of aspirin and others for no particular It doesnt have much to with whether they need it or The same thing is true with all medicines in all Two families living next door to each other may have roughly the same number of headaches and stomach upsets over the years but one will have a full medicine cabinet which theyre always going to and the other wont use up a roll of Tunis or a bottle of Bayer in five The people of Atlanta must be born Medicine is often just a bad Miami drinks the most prune which is understandible considering the size of its over70 population and the reputation for encouraging regularity that prune juice claims for Salt Iake City consumes the most candy bars and per I spent four days in Salt Lake City years ago and when I wanted a drink or bourbon before I had to pay to get a Utah State license to buy I suppose if they officially discourage drinking liquor in people are bound to turn to con suming things like I think a Mormon who had consumed a number of marshmallows would probably drive more safely than someone whod been drinking bourbon but I suspect over the long marshmallows might be as detrimental to a persons health as The Fortune survey says that New Orleans uses the most New the home of some of our best native American ought to be ashamed of itself for using so much Ketchup is nothing but a cover for food that isnt good enough without It is not so much a food enhancer as it is a food Anyone who puts a lot of ketchup on something doesnt really like what hes Denver consumes the most per capita and this un Alberquerque and the smaller cities near like Boulder and Santa are the new meccas for young people who are dissatisfied with the way of life traditionally has been lived in the United For many of these mildmannered revolutionaries dont eat three square meals a day like the rest of They graze all day on health Many of them prefer marijuana to either bourbon or marshmallows but theyre smart enough to be concerned about their physical wellbeing so they sup plement the pot with an alphabet of I

poignant words A mothers Especially when the mother says she is fighting for the life of her And as Delores Maxey describes the situation does sound Her happens to be an inmate in an Illinois state first in and most recently at Maxey writes My sons life is at risk because of violent inmates and gang members who control the inside living of other Last she her son was brutally stabbed in the face by prison gang members because he refused to join a The wound required 32 stitches and he has almost lost the sight of one Because of the she she pleaded that her son be tran sferred to a safer But she he was transferred from Joliet to which isnt any The she are still after She has written to state prison anybody she thinks might help in her crusade to save Brians And she has had some After I read her most recent let I phoned Maxey and asked her to Brian wouldnt go along with the he wouldnt so they came to his cell and two of them stabbed Now he might lose the sight of his They have put him in protective That means nobody can get near Hes isolated from the other But that wouldnt have to be if they would just transfer him to one of the other where the gangs dont operate that She was talking about one of the more benign where there are fewer hardened After she talked about I asked her what her son had done to get into She has never mentioned that in her She then But she was vague about details of the She turned the con versation back to her sons They keep saying they are reviewing the they are always reviewing But my son is in And he should be better He should be After talking to I decided to check on how her landed in We can begin with Sarah age She was in a Chicago disco and rejected Brians amorous ad he followed her from the raped strangled and dumped her body into a South Side Then there was Katrina age He dcdided to have sex with And when he finished the he strnagled her and left her body to rot in a nearby forest He pleaded guilty to those two as well as to another rape along an expressway in which he allowed the victim to He was also accused of a rape murder in but never stood trial for that And thats why who is now has been in prison for the last seven Simply he liked raping and strangling teenage state prisons can be harsh as Brian has Inmates do get hurt or There are gangs that are extensions of the city street But those brutal prison conditions are something that a person should really think about before he squeezes the life out of some kids throat and tosses her into a muddy Thats one of the reasons why many of the prisons are over even dangerous places most of society knows that they are filled with people like And the majority of the people arent interested in spending a lot of money to make Brians living conditions more The fact if Brians fate was put to a most people would vote aye to having Brian taken from prison and tossed into that same the state is obliged to protect So I talked to state prison officials about his mothers fears for his One sounding said we know about her let And Maxey writes her letters and tells her these things are hap The facts are that Maxey was cut when he and another inmate had a Both of them entered into the fight He had eight stitches and his eye was not We havent been able to take action because Maxey refuses to For whatever reasons and Brian wont say he has been in several other And thats why hes now in protective He keeps getting into although he wont say Protective custody isnt a very interesting way to while away a Kind of although he does have TV and reading But if its any comfort to his he does eat regularly and is being kept And when you think about thats a better deal than he gave those Your representatives Tom Loeff ler House of Representatives 1212Longworth
