Dateline: Serbia—A union official said he cut off his own finger and ate it to show how desperate he and other workers are over wages that have gone unpaid for years. “We, the workers, have nothing to eat. We had to seek some sort of alternative food and I gave them an example,” Reuters news service quoted Zoran Bulatovic as saying. The Raska Holding textile factory union leader used a hacksaw to chop the little finger off his left hand last week in the town of Novi Pazar in southwest Serbia. “It hurt like hell,” said Bulatovic. Bulatovic said the worker’s demands will not stop, but that further self-mutilations will be postponed until expected talks with government officials.
It's been awhile since I picked up an Alibi. I recently needed to visit a public restroom and an Alibi was handy—apparently for more than just reading. I guess I missed a letter from that crazy guy "The Don" [Re: Letters, “The Don’s Raw Food Manifesto,” April 23-29] I thought he was dead or something. I realized why I hadn't picked [up] an Alibi; You're still printing the same tired crap and sickening preachy letters from that insane and worn-out meathead. Really. There are a lot of nuts in this town. Can't you give them a chance and retire Meathead? And, ¡Ask a Mexican!? Give me a break. I can't wait to visit another public restroom to see how you have progressed.
