Vienna Sausages And A Nice Chianti

Jared Loughner, the troubled 23-year old charged with shooting Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in January, passes his days in federal prison, "watching TV, looking at photos of his pets, and snacking on junk food," according to THIS article. The junk foods offered in the prison commissary are, "peanut butter cookies, rainbow sherbet, mac & cheese, jumbo pickles and Vienna sausages."

Putting to one side the semantic issue of whether 'jumbo pickles' are really a junk food, isn't it disturbing to imagine this bald headed, allegedly suicidal, heavily medicated guy sitting in his prison cell alone, endlessly flipping through a photo album of his pet turtles while snacking on a steady diet of jumbo pickles and Vienna sausages?
