6 July 28, 2010 Your Hometown Newspaper Bath County News-Outlook ply because people like At least it is good for They Don't Make Beans i Like They Used To I By Russ Metz I II Most women nutri- tionists have a common goal in life: they want to starve us healthy, red- blooded males into sub- mission with diets that do not include corn pone, sopping gravy and baked Alaska. Occasionally one kicks the traces and comes up with a sensible menu for the masses. Take the one who has an idea for the hunger- in-America problem. She would get rid of all the food stamp hoola and all the bureaucrats who administer it and would have the govern- ment simply put bulgur wheat, beans dried milk and some other gourmet dishes like fish meal in distinctive bags in the corner grocery stores, and people could come by and pick they up for nothing. She says that a per- son ~vho uses these four items would be well nour- ished. Bulgur wheat, by the way, is wheat, that is processed so that it is nutritious without the highly-specified flavor of corn flakes. Dried milk is milk that has all the nu- trition in it that had been taken out of diet milk. This diet, she says, is sufficient for livelihood norm except for those must have a jug of wine and thou. A jug of McI1- henny sauce will substi- tute for those who have taken the vow. As long as you include the bean menu, you are pretty safe is saving hu- manity. Our generation was saved by the bean, and except for the gap we have created with the next generation, we haven't fared too badly. But the bean today is probably the most mis- treated food item in your grocery store. Most are sold in cello- phane bags, those pretty plastic sacks that show off food so handsomely. This desecrates the bean because it exposes it to light, causing quick dete- rioration. Even a couple of weeks under a neon light is enough to do a bean in. This is why the beans you buy so often crumble or split in half while you are sorting them, making too much bean trash per pound. They do no plump up when you cook them, but instead turn into a sickly mush. This is particular- ly true of the pinto bean, the aristocrat of bean- dora. Beans should be in brown paper sacks and in the case of the gov- ernment passing them out free, the olive drab KSP issues road Preliminary sta- tistics* indicatethat thirteen people died in thirteen separate crashes on Kentucky roadways from Mon- day, July 19, through Sunday, July 25, 2010. tim was wearing a hel- met.

This is 48 less fatalities than reported for the same time period in 2009. There were 317 mo- tor vehicle fatalities and 160 of those vic- tims were not wearing seat belts. Forty-six of those crashes involved a commercial motor vehicle. Thirty-two fatal crashes involved a pedestrian and 1 in- volved a scooter. Forty crashes involved a mo- torcycle and twenty- sacks, conforming to strict GI regulations. Beans should be kept in the dark. That way they will last forever. You will remember that King Tut hadn't held too well when they dug him up, but the beans that were buried with him were still good after all those centuries. To get the best beans, you should buy them in a tow sack still in the hulls and from a farmer and set the kids to hulling. It keeps them off pot. The federal feather merchants have been fairly confused in its bean program. You might expect this would hap- pen under bureaucratic bean specialists who live in lobster. In some sections of the country, farmers plant black-eyed peas under a government soil replen- ishment program. Farm- ers cannot believe dirt has the same appetite as people and this program has caused some ripple in the ranks. "I can't harvest them," a farmer told me. "I can't use them myself and I can't feed them to my livestock. And another thing, if you are hanker- ing for a mess of black- eyed peas, I can't stop you from taking some." Now this is the kind of replenishment program even I can understand. -tpt- The thing I wrote about chewing tobacco and dip- ping snuff brought out between sneezes, the question of the signifi- cance of the bumps on the bottom of Garret Snuff Bottles. One school holds that they indicate the relative strength of the snuff, one, two or three-bump power. Others smile knowingly and say the bumps are merely mold marks to indentify the bottle so some pharma- ceutical company wont start putting aspirin tab- lets in them. Dallas columnist Paul Crume and his friend Joe K. Storey put the question squarely to the company, The American Snuff Company of Mem- phis. '"We don't want no doubletalk or historical society palaver," they told the firm. "Just the facts, ma'am" In time they got a re- ply from a company rep- resentative, who gave a sensible reason for the bumps. Originally they were indeed mold marks, back when Garrett had to get his bottles from several sources. But they do not need the mold marks now. Yet the bumps were left on the jars sire- fatality statistics three of those victims cal law were not wearing hel- agencies enforcement throughout bumps on the bottom of their snuff jars. "The bumps have absolutely no significance," the ex- ecutive said. With this, he establishes himself as a shrewd observer of hu- man nature. It is the inconsequen- tial things that make life worth living. The ordi- nary man can do nothing but Vietnam, but he can paste a flag decal on his bumper. The big things he cannot control, but he will find a way to as- sociate himself with the things that give him ex- pression. Like the bumps on snuff bottles. The company has no in- tention ever of changing the Garett Snuff bottle, and this will give many a common man heart. He has little enough to hang on to. It is good to know that while empires fade, stars are reached and kings depart, there will always be bumps on the bottle of Garrett Snuff. us who are denizens oi the world of inconse- quentialities.
