(615) 523-5631 Fortunes By Tycho For Friday evening, August 20. through Friday evening. August 27, 1982: The Moon is in VIRGO as the weekend opens, enters LIBRA at 6:23 a.m. Saturday morning, enters SCORPIO at 12:22 p.m. Monday afternoon and enters SAGITTARIUS at 10:12 p.m. Wednesday night, staying thereuntil the following Saturday morning, Aug. 28. ARIES—The ram's hooves are planted firm on the ground, but his head ranges high above the clouds to a world of fantasy and dreams. What was exotic and mystifying last week is more easily understood now. TAURUS—Your words have that magic touch, so be careful who you're talking to when you whisper of love and lust. You could tell almost anyone anything and they'd believe it. Say those sexy things you love to say, but be sure you mean them! GEMINI—Self improvement week. You can clear out the cobwebs of the pest and figure out what'8 bugging your present if you sit down and talk it all out. September, coming up, can be a super month if you take care of business now. CANCER—All that support you got which made you feel like Number One last week has grown into the confidence you need to go after what you want. Share your future plans with the one you want to share the future with. LEO—In your sign this week: The Sun (leaves Monday evening) and Venus. Trying to impress the impressionable can give the wrong impression. As good as you feel about yourself, don't brag; it's confusing to the braggees. Be clear. Be specific. Be quietly authoritative. VIRGO—In your sign this week: The Sun (enters Monday evening) and Mercury (leaves next Friday, Aug. 27). Coordinate. Combine. Get it all together. Whether it's a family reunion or an orgy you're thinking of, your talent-this week is thinking about who or what goes together and seeing that it's done. LIBRA—In your sign this week: Mercury (enters next Friday, Aug. 27), Saturn and Pluto. You feel like the master of your fate; no matter what the ill winds blow your way, you know where you are, what you're doing. Don't take anything for granted, fhough. Share your surety with your first mate. SCORPIO— In your sign this week: Mars and Jupiter. Don't let your mind work overtime at the expense of your body. Take care of it. Be good to it. You do have a lot to think about, but don't forget to think about you. SAGITTARIUS—In your sign this week: Uranus and Neptune. Picky, picky! Everything has to be jsut right. That's OK, but don't be so obsessed by every little thing that you miss out on the big picture. By the way, a part of that picture should be a little romance. CAPRICORN—What a windup! You Capricorns can be so silly. You've taken all that you discovered last week and made jokes of it. Trickster, teaser, practical joker, your friends will enjoy this lighter side you show. AQUARIUS—Most ofthe signs are working overtime this week, but none more than yours. The advantage is in your ability to seek out others for help. Knowing whom you can trust and rely on can make all the difference. PISCES—Are all the old wives' tales true? Can sex make you blind? It might just be that way for you this week if you don't get your head out of the clouds and down to earth. Realism, Pisces, realism! • 1982 STONEWALL FEATURES SYNDICATE Last Word Let me see if I've got this straight By Henry McClurg Bill Elkin, president of the Houston Police Officer's Association, heard last Tuesday like many of ub that a Federal judge struck down Texas' so-called sodomy statute. Then reporters asked him what he thought of gay people becoming police officers, and he said, "We think it would be bad for our image." Now, wa-a-a-i-t a minute. "We think it would be bad for our image"? This man, head of the largest Houston police officer's group, in the U.S. city probably with the worst national reputation for ita police force, said that. Well, Mr. Elkin, let me just think this out. We're talking about image here. You were booed in the Astrodome. National TV made a movie about your throw-down guns. Houston officers were convicted of throwing a prisoner in the bayou. National statistics give Houston one ofthe highest "kill" factors for its officers. Letters-to-the-editor in both the Chronicle and Post constantly tell of instances of police misconduct. Yes, I guess you're right. We sure wouldn't want to do anything that would hurt the image of the Houston Police Department. And openly-gay cops had nothing to do in building Buch a great Houston reputation. Well, let me be serious now. As a resident of Houston, Mr. Elkin, I and many hundreds of thousands of others are embarraBed by the unprofessional conduct of many of the officers. I am embarrased by the racism that exists among many Houston officers. I am embarrased by the homophobia that exists among many Houston police officers. I am embarassed by the ignorance that many police officers have of basic constitutional rights. And I tun embarrassed by a past recruitment system that allowed such ignorant and prejudiced people to become Houston police officers. So what if a police officer is homosexual? I, and the vast majority of Houstonians, do not see where that is a factor in being a good police officer. And now a Federal judge says so too. On the other hand, being racist or being homophobic—that very well does affect the performance of an officer. The citizens of Houston want major changes at the Houston Police Department. And we're getting them.
