College-Aged Daughter Against Using Straws Now

MIDDLETOWN, CT–Unveiling her latest college-acquired quirk, Wesleyan University freshman Julie Freitag, 18, informed her parents Monday that she is staunchly opposed to the use of drinking straws. "I don't know if it's an environmental-waste thing or an I'm-all-grown-up thing or maybe something else altogether, but she won't touch a straw," said Jim Freitag, her father. "Every time we see her, she's got a new one: First, she wouldn't wear deodorant because of the aluminum, then she wouldn't watch the Oscars because of something to do with the war. But not using straws? What that's about?"
