Transcript 'Mrs PART OF COMRADE GORBACHEV'S NEW 'OPENNESS'/" Everywhere You Go, You Must Fly Merged The Innocent Bystander by Arthur Hoppe "Good evening, sir. You'll be flying with us on Behemoth Airways tonight?" "Do I have a choice?" "Well, no you don't, do you? I guess we're the only one left since we merged with U.S. - Texas - American - Delta - Pan-American - TWA - World Airways. But as the Justice Department said in approving this very last airline merger, 'One big happy company will better service the public.'" "Well, frankly, I think the quality of your service has deteriorated badly." "Oh, yeah? Well, the quality of our customers isn't so hot either. Take you: bleary eyes, a two-day beard and that suit looks like you slept in it." "Who slept? I was in line between three screaming children and a lady with a dyspeptic St. Bernard in a box. I haven't had a wink in 48 hours." "And another thing, you customers complain a lot more than you used to. Grouse, grouse, grouse. Now, what class do you want to fly, Executive Steerage, Business Steerage or Economy Steerage?" "How much is Executive Steerage?" "If you have to ask,you can't afford it. But I can let you have a one-way ticket from San Francisco to L.A. for $787." "Don't you have a special fare good after midnight Wednesdays for the emotionally disabled without baggage because it was stolen while they were trying to fend off muggers?" "What's a special fare? Where do you want to sit?" "I'll take a window?" "What's a window?" "All right, I'll take an aisle." "What's an aisle? Look, Mac, I'll put you in 17-C." "Is that nonsmoking?" "You want nonsmoking? OK, I'll move you to 17-B. Nonsmoking's every other seat. What about your in-flight meal? Would you prefer bread or water?"- "Not both?" "Not unless you want to move up to Executive Steerage. Would you care to purchase a headset for $39.95?" "I'll read." "In the dark? Our 90-minute feature film tonight is 'Big Behemoth Loves You.' It's the warmhearted story of how the airline industry has benefited from the final merger. For example, all the pilots now speak the same technical language." "The same technical language?" "Like, you know, 'Holy criminy, look out!' Stuff like that. Now, let's see, your direct flight will stop at Manteca, Modesto, Merced, Madera and Mel's Tree Farm to take on wood." "Wood?" "Yes, this is one of our ecologically- sound, economical, wood-burning jets. Then the stewardess will demonstrate the use ofthe parachute as you try to fly over the Tehachapis." "I get a parachute?" "No, the stewardess does. Your safety features include an individual St. Christopher's medal and a Gideon Bible in the seat pocket in front of you." "Wonderful. I notice on the board up there that there's no time of departure. When will the flight take off?" "As soon as we can fill it up. That should be within several days, though." "Several days? Before the last merger, didn't you have a flight to L.A. every hour on the hour?" "Yes, we did. But for some reason, people don't seem to be flying as much these days as they used to." «M987 (S.F.) Chronicle Publishing Co. APRIL 17, 1987 / MONTROSE VOICE 19 Fortunes No More Concealed Secrets for Leo By Mark Orion Your Horoscope from the Voice For Friday evening, April 17, through Friday morning, April 23, 1987: ARIES—Feeling lethargic? Got the blahs? Motor won't turn over? Do something you've never done before. You need to get out of your humdrum routine. A midnight swim, or something even more bizarre connected with water might be the answer. Take along a Pisces or Scorpio. TAURUS—That little thing on the side keeps growing larger all the time. You just can't keep your mind off the current attraction, as it becomes a real distraction from what should be important to you. Like a silly song you can't help singing, it's forgettable but cute. GEMINI—What an idea! Why did't I think of that? Lightning stikes again: a man and a women that you're close to will both benefit from your mind-bending innovations, though not in the same way. It will be very interesting to watch their reactions as you plot it all out. Special! 15% Discount on African Chiclid Tropical Fish on Fancy Gold Fish on 20 gal.

So you'd better not blow it. Here's a respite from troubles and an opening for something special. Slide into it. Don't let it slide by! LEO—You've put away your nasty growl and you have no more secrets to conceal. The light and fun that carried you through last time can now be brought into your work and business life. You've got a lot to give, and those around you will do more than appreciate it. VtRGO—Romance gets put on the back burner while you turn the old sex drive on high. That could take you to some pretty strange places that make you unreachable to those you're close to. Maybe you should pursue your activities with some discretion, no? ■ LIBRA—What is it with your lover or close one these days? The more positive and loving you are, the more negative and distant the relationship. You're doing what comes naturally to you, so there's no point in trying to make drastic changes. Be yourself and listen for clues. SCORPIO—Put on your travelling shoes and shuffle off to—well, maybe not Buffalo, but you won't have to go far to get a thrill of adventure. You've been longing for it, so if you can't get out of town, let your mind do the travelling. A good fantasy, couldn't hurt. SAGITTARIUS—The power of love that struck you last time has a healing effect and enables you to move ahead in other areas of your life. With your nighttimes shining, your day-to-day responsibilities take on a better, brighter light. CAPRICORN—The heat is on; body heat and mental heat are high, and so are you. High, hot and somewhat more outrageous than your usual self, you can learn a lot and teach some things too. Don't let the heat get you down; it should be getting you up, up, up! AQUARIUS—Let your intuitive, yielding side guide you through this time of decisions. You can continue to stand at the crossroads, and you've got to be able to trust yourself before you choose your turn. Meditate on what's central to you, and most important. PISCES—Now comes the turning point. Balanced between yesterday's requirements and tomorrow's hopes is the part of your life that involves decision and committment. You'd love to get lost in dreams, but reality beckons.
