Gastric Bypass And Rikers Island Don't Mix

A former inmate at Rikers Island is suing New York City for $80 million, claiming that, because he'd had gastric bypass surgery, the type of food served at the prison, and the requirement that all inmates eat their meals in 4 minutes, put his life in danger. You can read more in today's New York Daily News HERE (including amazing photos of him before and after his surgery).

As an aside, that revelation about the 4 minute prison meals really surprised me.
