Born in 1899, Miss Susannah Mushatt Jones has survived two World Wars, twenty-two U.S. presidents, the Great Depression, the Cold War and the birth of the telephone, radio, TV and Internet. Still alive and well at age one hundred fifteen, Miss Susie is New York City’s oldest resident. Miss Susie abstains from alcohol and smoking, but relatives credit her longevity to bacon. “She eats it every single morning,” says her goddaughter Valerie Price. Price does not eat bacon herself and doesn’t recommend it—such is the power of propaganda over observation in today’s modern world. But maybe her goddaughter is right, maybe that bacon will catch up with Miss Susie one day (aol.com, July 9, 2014)!
