disaffection with the media is always sharpest when it doesnt like what it sees on television hears on the radio or reads in the Tom Johnson television news executive 1994 EDITORIAL Say No to Unabomber Dilemma faced by New York Times Washington Post really a nobrainer The Unabomber that crafty domestic terrorist whose bombs have killed three and injured 23 in the last 17 years has drawn a line in the sand Unless the New York Times and the Washington Post publish the Unabombers 62page singledspaced manifesto more bombs will go off and more people will be killed the Unabomber said Management at both papers was said to be weighing the issue Fri day realizing that by not publishing what would be seven full newspaper pages of terrorist rantings bloodshed may ensue They were also talking with authorities about the dilemma But there really is no question about how to answer the Unabombers threats they should tell him outright Hell No Newspapers are an open forum but the content of that forum should never be dictated by a terrorist who hangs threats and warn ings of the heads of journalists By buckling under this demand its frightening to think of what may follow Kooks and crazies would come crawling out of the woodwork if they felt they could get on the front page of their towns newspapers All they would have to do threaten and frighten sufficiently to ihave their way And of few of them through if their demands were But in this instance thelJnabornber is expecting something jfrom both the New York Times and the Washington Post without iproviding real proof of his sincerity to stop his terroristic actions Do we really trust this nut case enough We shouldnt Hes just as liable to get his way and then turn around and make demands The answer is C And as for those who might blame newspapers if the Unabomber good on his threats youve got it all wrong t The only person responsible for the Unabombers actions f both past and future is the Unabomber ff Spreading blame around for a terrorists actions is unfair and I unwise I Todays editorial was written by Managing Editor Doug Love fWrite us New Braunfels HeraldZeitung welcomes letters on any public tissue The

layer of through a white cloth and had a glass Oh I should mention the mold was supposed to be there Its called a kombucha mush room although it is not really a mushroom but a mold formed by a symbiosis of yeast cells and bacteria A growing number of kom bucha drinkers claim the fer mented tea cleanses poisons from the body prevents increases the Tcell court in AIDS patients grows hair elim e kitchen and got out I found a thick layer e floating on the top mold strained the tea ice inates wrinkles causes wei terol helps insomnia con ht loss lowers choles tipation hemorrhoids diabetes bronchitis asthma the list goes on and on Frankly Im skeptical I interesting conversation top c and I just like saying Heres how it works Yoi my older sister gave me min of Uptons black tea add si gar let it cool and put it in a big nonmetallic bow kombucha mushroom on Then you float your lie top cover it with a think testing will deter some Braunfels TX 78130 o are accepted Deadline for this sur Roger Croteau ut it does give me an get a kombucha mold You brew a few quarts cloth and put it in a dark cabinet for a week After a week your tea is ready and the mush room has reproduced itself A new kombucha mush room has grown on top of the old one So now you can make two batches of tea or find some sucker to give your extra mold to like my sis ter did So what does it taste like Not great My sister credits the tea with helping her lose 12 pounds I believe it Youre supposed to drink four ounces first thing in the morning on an empty stom ach To tell you the truth I havent felt much like eat ing for hours after drinking the tea It tastes kind of like flat sour hard cider although the literature that I got with my mushroom says it tastes like a light Moselle wine So anyway my first batch of kombucha tea is in the refrigerator Ive gagged down a small glass each morning Well see if I have any amazing health results to report in a few months In the mean time I had this extra kombucha mold to get rid of it seemed a shame to throw it away and Ill have enough trou ble polishing off one pitcher a So Ive been trying to sell my coworkers on it The average conversation goes like this You look a lit tle run down you should try some kombucha teal Coworker Whats Me Well kombucha is this mold It looks like a big slimy pancake and you float it in your tea for a week in a closet and it ferments Then you drink Coworker gives me a stranger look than usual I think Ill So I threw away my first kombucha baby thats what they call the new mold that grows on the top of the Then I thought to ask Allene Blaker our editorial assistant and an adventurous type She once sailed to Hawaii with her husband Clay 22 days at sea At first she was skeptical I think Ill let you drink it for a week or two and if your still alive I might take she told me So I brought her a glass of the tea and she actually liked the taste Now shes down for my next kombucha Sue England one of our reporters also tried a sip She said it didnt taste too bad but it smells like sweaty feet I dont think shell be growing kombucha in her cabinets any time soon Erica Nies who works on the other side of the wall in advertising here at the Herald is another adven turous type I know shes adventurous because she has a pierced naval So I gave her the kombucha sales pitch and now shes down for my second kom bucha baby But I think thats about all Ill be able to give away here at work So if you want to jump on the kombucha band wagon and join the thousands of crystal worshipping treehugging New Age types who swear allegiance to the Mushroom with a Mission give me a call at the Herald 6259144 and Ill give you your own slab of mold and directions on how to get started And you too can join the kombucha generation Roger Croteau is the HeraldZeitung city Do you support drug testing of athletes A recent Supreme Court has thi doprto random drug testing of public school athletes Justices voted 63 to al

But the measure has the backing of the White House and most Senate Democrats since it restores mil lion to certain programs that Congress had tried to cut in a bill the president vetoed earlier in the year Its better than half a said Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle Clinton embraced the measure in a statement The new bill achieves the same amount of deficit reduction as the pre vious bill but it

responded to last weeks survey question Do you sup port the death and all were in favor of capital punishment Some of the responses received to the survey question included Yes I support the death penalty Anyone intentionally taking life should pay with his own Most murders are savage brutal and terrify ing to the victim No appeal possible The only problem is the delay in Today In History By The Associated Fress the time that the penalty is executed If they are found guilty execute them the next week They should be punished for the crime as they dished it out Death is painless if controlled by God Death is brutal if caused by acci dent or deserve a brutal death Dead criminals commit no further crimes To improve the effectiveness and impact of the death penalty the time between conviction and execu tion needs to be greatly reduced Justice should be swift The death penalty is not getting even or revenge God will do that The death penalty is dealing out justice Dead murderers
