"I feel sad for him," the actress said in Tuesday's USA Today. "Mostly I feel sad for my 69- year-old mother, who has spent her life struggling to raise four children on her own with JODIE FOSTER d ' 8nity . a 1 d stren & th of character. In his book "Foster Child," Buddy Foster wrote: "I have always assumed Jodie was gay or bisexual" but noted she has had "love affairs with men all her life." Of their mother, he wrote she once had an affair with a woman the children called "Aunt Jo." Jodie Foster said the book is a "cheap cry for attention and money" and is filled with "hazy recollections, fantasies and borrowed press excerpts." She said her brother left home at young age, and she has had little to do with him since. Jackson ducks guard's suit LOS ANGELES — An ex-security guard's wrongful-termination lawsuit against Michael Jackson was thrown out by a judge Tuesday. Fired security guard Jerome Johnson's lawsuit was deemed without merit by Superior Court Judge David Horowitz. Johnson's lawsuit said he was fired after claiming Jackson executives tried to cover up Jackson's alleged sexual encounters with a teen-age boy. Johnson claimed to have overheard Jackson security chief Bill Bray bragging that he lied to the grand jury investigating the child-sex allegations. Prosecutors in Los Angeles and Santa Barbara counties Investigated child-molestation allegations against Jackson. In September 1994, they announced no charges would be filed because the teenage accuser refused to cooperate. Ford says drug war is in mind YORBA LINDA, Calif. — Victory in the war on drugs will have to be won in the minds of addicts, former first lady Betty Ford said. "Unless we educate and treat the drug users so there is not the demand for the drugs, we're still going to have that problem," she said Monday at the Richard Nixon Library & Birthplace. "It is just going to compound the number of drug users that we have." Ford's name has become synonymous with addiction. Since the Betty Ford Center opened in 1982, more than 30,000 people, including many who are rich and famous, have sought drug and alcohol treatment.

Ann gets trashed for taking on leftover-savers Dear Ann Landers: This is in response to the letter from "Al in Bellevue, Wash.," who was critical of the hotel guest who stuffed a plastic bag with rolls from the buffet table and walked out. You said it was "tacky." I disagree. My husband and I often stay at hotels where a continental breakfast is offered. We have three children under 5. It would not be easy to get the kids up, dress them and take them down to the lobby for that complimentary breakfast. So, either my husband or I go downstairs and get six or seven rolls and put them in the plastic bag we carry whenever we travel. We are not taking anything that does not belong to us and resent being called "tacky." Your apologies are ac- ANN LANDERS Creators Syndicate Inc. cepted. — Reston, Va. Dear Va.: Readers from everywhere climbed all over me for my response to that one. Here's a clobber from management: From Blue Bell, Pa.: My family has been in the restaurant business for two generations, so I have seen both sides of the dining room. When food, such as butter and rolls, are left on the table, the diner assumes it goes back to the kitchen and into the trash can, which it should. While you might think that's a waste, would you care to be served a roll, or anything else, that was on its third trip from the kitchen? The well-dressed lady who took the rolls in a plastic bag was not tacky. She was sensible. You owe her an apology. Los Angeles: The letter about the woman who took several rolls from the hotel buffet and put them in a plastic bag to take home had special meaning to me. My great-aunt was a refugee from Hitler's Germany who came to the United States many years ago. Whenever we went out TV TONIGHT to dinner, she would ask the waiter to put all the leftovers in a bag. She would then give the bag to a homeless person on the street. "I will never forget what it was like to always be hungry," she said. "To waste food is a sin. I could never do it." Newark, N.J.: My cousin who came from Yugoslavia many years ago has a good job in an upscale restaurant in New York. He said it took him a long time to get accustomed to seeing large quantities of food that had been left on plates and serving platters, tossed in the garbage. When he asked his boss if he could take uneaten portions from the plates home, he was told, "No. It's against the law." He didn't believe it. Later, he learned from a government inspector that it was indeed against the law to take uneaten food from the plates. "For what reason?" he asked. "Because," he was told, "the Board of Health has a responsibility to protect people against contagious diseases that can be picked up from eating food that has been contaminated by a person who has a virus, maybe even AIDS." Please tell your readers to beware. Dear Newark: Thanks for the warning, but no one has ever gotten AIDS from food. Hepatitis, however, is another story. (This is why food handlers are re- 1 quired to wear gloves.) And now, dear readers, here is the final clobber that comes from the maitre d' of an extremely upscale dining establishment in Santa Monica, Calif.: Dear Miss Landers: Taking leftovers home is not tacky, as you have indicated. It is sensible. All good restaurants have plastic-lined bags for this express purpose, and we are delighted when patrons take the leftovers home. Please tell your readers. — XXX Dear XXX: You did, and I thank you. Gem of the Day: Asking a writer what he thinks about critics is like asking a lamp post how it feels about dogs. : 5/14/97 QPBS.
