And if in the course of the act of vandalizing a doorpost marker, a thief gets away with a silver casing, then, as the Jerusalem Post put it recently, "the thief will have got a double bargain." By no stretch of the imagi- nation, nor by any Halachic dictum, is a stolen Mezuzah kosher, of course. Neverthe- less, a check of Israel police records failed to come up with even a single case of apprehending a Mezuzah thief. Printed parchments for use in the Mezuzah are available in quantity but they are not considered kosher -- the parchment must be hand-inscribed, bu a true sofer, in the same manner that a Sefer Torah is made. Composer Strikes at OPEC In Phoenix, composer Brent Burns struck a responsive chord with Americans -- angry at gas prices -- in a country tune, "Cheaper Crude or No More Food." Singlehandedly, he took on OPEC with what is shaping up as a hit record of the year. "If they don't lower the gas, we're going to lowerthe boom. Quit shipping all that wheat and corn, Forget the Golden Rule. If they don't lower the price of crude, We're gonna cut off the food And in a week they'll sing a different tune. "* Burns told reporters, "The Arabs have a dagger at our throats; it's time we used our clout." A news commentator premiered "Crude" on a national program. D.J.s aired the song hourly, describing it as "the voice of heartland America." "'And if they still want to play rough We'll show'em who's really tough Let them make a loaf of bread from a gallon of crude If you folks in the Middle East are listening, You better listen to what I'm saying, 'Cause we'll take it for a while But once you got us riled You're gonna think you got a tiger by the tail. "' A woman report-=dly sert 5,000 copies to the White House. It was discLssed in the Delegates Lounge at the U.N. "Crude" concludes: "1"11 tell you folks, our farmers feed the urtd, And that includes the countries rye been talkin' about. If they don't lower the price of crude, We'll just raise the price of food; Let 'era pay ten bucks for a loaf of bread. '" " !979 Iron Blossom III I III i Eugene Flake, LFD .,   41 50 Forsyth Rd.
