Transcript 8 MONTROSE VOICE/DECEMBER 12. 1986 Hello to Arms The Innocent Bystander By Arthur Hoppe In this hour of crisis, Mr. Reagan can count on me to stand behind him. I'm the only person I've run into who believes the president didn't know what was going on, and I'll defend his ignorance to my last breath. I know what ^ you'll say. You'll ^ say: "Admiral Poin- ^ dexter, occasionally accompanied by Colonel North, .% briefed him directly ^ every day on what was going on. So how could he not know what was going on?" Well, I'll tell you: Scene: The Oval Office. The president is seated in his swivel chair, chin on chest, as the admiral and the colonel enter. The colonel has an Uzi submachine gun in one hand and a bayonet in the other. The Admiral: Better give him a presidential salute, Ollie, to get his attention. The President: (giving a start as the colonel fires off a quick hurst into the ceiling/ Oh, it's you Ollie. (beaming) Won any good wars lately? The Colonel: /modestly) No. sir. But I did manage to get a dozen planeloads of weapons through to the Ayatollah and those other moderate fanatics who are heleagured out there in that Iranian desert. The President: He'll need them, poor devil. Surrounded by Arabs. Probably running out of water by now. Just like Gary Cooper in "Beau Geste." Holed up in Fort Zinderneauf. Most of his fellow Legionnaires dead. The treacherous enemy... The Admiral: Yes sir. And we made $30 million on the deal. What would you think of putting it in a Swiss bank account, Mr. President? The President: Swiss, you say? (singing reedily) "The hills are alive with the sound of music.." Great place, Switzerland. The Admiral: I knew you'd agree, sir. (taking a fat file out of his briefcase) Here's a list of the secret names and the secret numbers of the secret accounts, which I'll now proceed to shred in order to keep them secret. The President: (as the shredded paper mounds up on his desk) Yes, I remember Shirley Temple trudging up the Alps with her milk pail. Remember "Heidi1" Cute little tyke. Of course, that was lit years before we rode off into the sunset together. Remember "That Hagen Girl?" The Admiral: Yes, sir. Now about what's going on in Latin America ... The President: (frowning) Don't tell me about Latin America. I starred in several movies about Latin America. Remember "The Alamo?" The Colonel: (bayonetting a pillow! Ai-yee! Remember the Alamo! Tbe President: (as feathers fly about the room) There I was, surrounded hy Mexicans. Running out of water. Holed up in the Alamo. Most of my fellow Texans dead. The treacherous enemy ... The Admiral: Yes, sir, They're just like the Sandinistas. Now, our boys, the Contra freedom fighters are the moral equivalent of. . , The President: The Cisco Kid! -lust think, thousands of Cesar Romeros dashing about the countryside, each with his trusty sidekick. Leo Carillo, righting wrongs and protecting the innocent with simple six-gun justice, the way I always did. Remember me in "Kight Days to Sunset'".' Or was that "Ten Horses to Tombstone'".' The Admiral: Then it's all right with you, Mr. President, if we air drop a couple of dozen small bills on our belea- gured (.ontra friends'.' The President: (musing) No, I think it was "Six Soliders to Hell and Mack." Or was that John Wayne? No. he was Rooster Coghurn. 1 think he was in "The Alamo." I was in "Bedtime for Bonzo." There I was, holed up in bed, surrounded by pillows ... My head slowly sinking... The Colonel: Want me to fire off another 50 rounds, Admiral? The Admiral: No, Ollie, we'll try again tomorrow. 11986 (S F ) Chronicle Publishing Co — ^nS^» Clip & Save- mm , ^^ | __ _. nUi/% )fe VIRGINIA PIWES 'JZ n Ji- Cusii om F/ockina M/ill he-sold an our lot II beautiful l/arietic5 _t C-cjjK Di-COUliTil FREE 00 off 5AT /JSWOULY DEC. li^/WDlV r- 'X Q' 5 too I J r\L[- SPRUCE i_inj ™ RYDER TREES for \hc-children 16/7 Richmonddt ManJ i Biohmorx-i jc_0upon__ Mon.-Fr'UI'30-^OO Weekends Wl-'OOJ Ujl&tlnctive ^rrolldau swear BASIC BROTHERS 1320 westhElMER HOUSTON [713] S23-1J5_?6 SPORTSWEAR/COSTUMES Rock "IN" Horse Saturday 9pm-_am Justine (All Girl Band) with Shannon, Susan, Susun, Anna Marie $2 cover Beginning Dec 19—Fri & Sat Also New Year's Eve Tuesdays: Evening Buffet & $2 Pitcher of Beer CtOMd Hominy.
