Page 12 POST-GAZETTE, OCTOBER 23, 2015 Ray 15arron's I Ready for this? Springfield, MO, last month updated its indecent exposure laws to require women to cover a greater percentage of their breasts in public, in response to "Free the Nipple" rallies organized by local feminists. The law also requires that both sexes "cover 100 percent of their buttocks." A provision barring the display of"covered male genitals in a discernibly turgid" state was removed from the final law. Holy water, after Rep. Bob Brady (D-PA), stole a half-glass of water that Pope Francis drank from during his address to Congress, and used the water to "bless" his staff and family. Pope Francis called on U.S. priests to devote more time to their parishioners' spiritual needs. But 20 percent of U.S. parishes no longer have a priest in residence. For each U.S. priest, there are 2,600 parishioners. Huh? California became the fifth U.S. state to legalize doctor-assisted suicide when Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown signed a controversial bill that allows physicians to prescribe lethal doses of drugs to terminally ill patients. More news from California, A man got much more than he expected when he opened his de- livery from Domino's: $1,299 in cash. Instead of the chicken wings he expected, Mike Vegas found two thick stacks of cash Inside the box, one con- talning $666, and the other $633. Vegas called the driver, who had meant to take the money- filled box to the bank. Domino's rewarded Vegas with a year of free pizza. "Honest people are hard to find these days," said a Domino's manager. Stup/d/tyl A Michigan driver with a phobia of spiders sparked a raging fire at a gas station when he tried to kill one of the critters with a cigarette lighter. Security footage showed the man filling up his car and then peering inside the fuel door and asking, "Is that a spider in there?" When he ignited his lighter, a blaze suddenly engulfed the car, the pump and, possibly the spider. The driver put out the flames with a nearby fire extinguisher and returned to the gas station the next day to apologize. "He was sorry," said a clerk. "It's just one of those things that happen -- stupidity." Hairy news! Doctors have warned that the hipster "man bun" hairstyle popularized by Jared Leto and Leonardo DiCaprio could be causing an epidemic of premature baldness. When men yank their hair back in a tight bun, they put a damag- ing strain on follicles around their hairline, which can result in a form of hair loss known as trac- tion alopecia, explained Dr, Sabra Sullivan, a dermatologist. "I see (the condition) probably once or twice a week now," she said, waming that ff hipsters feel they have to have a bun, they should wear it loose. "You don't want to go for hair transplants later." The share of foreign-bom people living in the U.S. will rise to an all-time high within the next decade, according to a new Pew Research Center report. By 2025, at least 14.9 percent of people living in the U.S. will have been born outside the county -- topping the previous high of 14.8 per- cent set in 1890. Today, about 45 million people, or 13.7 percent, of those living in the U.S. were born elsewhere. News from Detro~ For the first time since 1950, Detroit's white population increased in 2014, by 8,000 people. White miUennials seeking housing bargains are moving in. Selling pizza to Italians: "In what looks like a case of bringing coals to Newcastle," Domino's is bringing pizza to the land where it was invented, said Clara Linnane of MarketWatctucom. The chain has opened an outlet in Milan, Italy, with plans for another three in the city by year's end. Nearly half of Domino's $8.9 billion in sales last year came from outside the U.S., but even its executives acknowledge that selling American pies to Italians won't be easy. "No major Ameri- can pizza brand has successfully entered the (Ital- ian) market," said Richard Allison, president of Domino's International. "We're going where no major pizza brand has gone before." Domino's will offer traditional Italian ingredients, like prosciutto di Parma, and locally sourced wheal But the com- pany is hoping that its online ordering tech will be its secret sauce. Takeout isn't common in Italy, despite Italians eating pizza an average of seven times a month. Carlo Scostumato thinks Domino's should also sell their own version of calzone. It's true! Sales of full-calorie soda in the United States have fallen by more than 25 percent over the past 20 years. In a scramble to adjust to changing con- sumer tastes, Coca-Cola has increased the O O O number of in- ,~ j dividual prod- ucts it offers to 700 this year, up from 400 in 2004. Good movel A new restaurant in McKinney. Texas, is giving adults with special needs a sense of purpose and a paycheck of their own. The Hugs Cafe primarily hires employees with Down Syn- drome and other developmental and intellectual disorders. Owner Ruth Thompson, who got the idea in a dream, offers competitive wages and tailorseachjob to suit her 24 teammates, as she calls them. "We're not giving them a handout," she said."We're giving them a hand up." For many, it's their first paying job. "It's a chance to show ourselves that we can work, like anyone else," said cashier Mike Sesson. The Justice Department announced that it will release about 6,000 inmates serving sentences for drug offenses -- the largest one-time release of federal prisoners in U.S. history. The move is part of an effort to reduce over-erowding in pris- ons and to free nonviolent drug offenders who were given harsh sentences in the 1980s and '90s. About a third of the inmates to be released are undocumented and will be quickly deported. In brief Most Americans receive an incorrect or delayed diagnosis at some point in their lives, a new government report finds, often with devas- tating consequences. Autopsy reports and medi- cal records show that misdiagnoses contribute to 10 percent of patient deaths, reveals the study conducted by the Institute of Medicine's Health Advisory Committee. The study also blames a lack of communication between clinicians and patients, and a medical culture that discourages doctors from admitting mistakes. Interesting news! An antioxidant in green tea boosts metabolism and thus helps bum fat. Green tea can be your caffeine source, too, and it has proven memory-enhancing powers. Yes! We do enjoy having a "spot of green tea." This can be attributed to when we were stationed in England and billited with the McCormick's. That's another story. And so, one of our paesans, Yogi Berra, born Lawrence Peter Berra, has passed away. In brief: he was raised in St, Louis by Italian immigrant parents.

When World War II began, he joined the Navy, seeing combat on D-Day and later winning a Purple Heart. So on this date, October 23, 2002, my wonder- ful wife Marilyn, mother of Karen and Robyn, passed away. She was professionally known as Marilyn Mitchell, a radio and TV hostess of children's shows on WCOP Radio and WBZ-TV. Yes, she was well-known and beautiful! We were married for 49 years. She had many, many fans! We purposely moved to Nahant for privacy. No one knocks on your door saying they were pass- ing through Nahant and came by to see us. Yes, she was active in the town reading books to chil- dren at the Nahant Public Library. It would take a whole page to write about her accomplishments! Our distinguished musicologist, and show biz genius, Albert Natale discovered a piece about Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel who wrote, "Jackie mar- ried Jack Kennedy for love, I suppose, but didn't get it. She married the Greek (Onassis) for money and got it. You tell me which marriage was the more successful." And Tony Curtis, said, "Janet Leigh was years ago! Nowadays I wouldn't be caught dead married to a woman old enough to be my wife!" Steve McQueen, said, "All McGraw is a good wife for me. We're both actors, but nei- ther of us is a great, big, fat talent, and she's not all wild-eyed about her career, which suits me fine." A poll of 2,250 Americans were asked to pick an age at which they could live in good health forever. The average person's favorite age was 50. Speaking of age, we are now so old that we no longer buy green bananas. Will I live to be 100.9 I think so. It has been said creative people live long. Irving Berlin made it to 101. Recipes From the Homeland COPYRIGHT, ALL RIGHTS RESERVED BKAC IOLETINI 20 thin slices of beef (approx. 4" x 4") I cupflavored bread crumbs 2 small garlic cloves chopped 1 tablespoon grated Romano cheese 1 tablespoon olive oil 3 metal skewers (6 or 9 inches long) MARINADE: 1 crushed garlic clove 1 tablespoon dried basil 2 tablespoons olive oil. Prepare marinade first by mixing crushed garlic clove, basil and olive oil in a bowl and set aside. Then mix bread crumbs, chopped garlic, and grated cheese in a separate bowl. Additional bread crumbs may be needed depending on the number of Braccioletini you prepare. Add olive oil to slightly moisten the bread crumbs. Take one beef slice at a time. Spread about one teaspoon of bread crumbs in the center of meat. Leave sides of meat about half-inch clear of bread crumbs. Gently roll while folding in edges forming a small rolled piece. Squeeze the rolled meat in your hands. Insert metal skewer. Add each rolled Braccioletini onto skewer. They should fit tightly up against each other. When all Braccioletini are on skewers, place them into the marinade. Marinate for about 20 minutes. Before broiling, brush extra marinade over Braccioletini after placing them on the broiling tray. Brown on both sides. Check frequently because they cook fast. Serve hot with mashed or baked potato and a vegetable or salad. NOTE: When I make Braccioletini today, I select a bottom round roast at the supermarket and ask at the dell counter to have it sliced the thickness of cold cuts. Then I cut the larger slices to the size I need. Patience and experience are required but it is well worth the effort. Braccioletini can be cooked on the gas grill, but must be watched because they burn easily.
