Transcript 6B HOUSTON VOICE BLUE PAGES I MARCH 3, 1995 yours Truff by LeofiJ fit Za EarA View from a Banana Stand Lately, editors and lesser folks harangue me to mouth off more about the tragedy playing out in the nation's capital by Newt Gingrich and company. As if I could articulate in a way that will make clear the foolishness of Newt's "popular" effort io put a contract out on "American Liberalism" (double—thought to read idealism equals death/only money equals liberty). What can you say after you've said it's dumb? It's dumber.' Of course it is. but none are so blind as those who refuse to see the serpent whose sting they feel. How can you make anyone who supports a return to the closet for queers, easier access to assault weapons, no- choice for women, less medical care for AIDS and other patients, removal of Constitutional restraints on police, and welfare for the rich paid for by taxes from the working class see Ihe folly of their self-destruction? Is there any way to make those blind to the fact that we had a balanced Federal budget before the Vietnam War see? How can you stop people from slamming the benefits of LBJ's Greai Society while ignoring that costly 14 year war with its supply line stretching half way around the earih? Is there a way to illuminate more the military deficits of Ronald Reagan and George Bush? We try, we fail, we try again. If we had the interest—only interest—paid on Ihe Reagan/Bush deficit—only the Reagan/Bush deficit—we would have a balanced budget! See? This brave new order will do damage. bui we will weather il. And. after this national-lenten fast, we may all see more clearly. For now it is Carnival time, and all worrisome woes are forgotten before the Lenten fasi is begun. Worries, like demagogues, will be with us always, alas, Mardi Gras is but a fleeting thing. To you weary fellow travelers trudging down liberty's deserted road I offer this verse: In a hot tub. inside a heavy banana stand. embraced by morning breezes. Frayed leaves dip and turn. hopeful in the fresh air. Remembering departed winds and casting shredded shadows, like Carnival bunting across old soft bricks. The winds lift puffs of crumbling brick and tourists pass their fingers along the surface to turn them read and carry home little dust souvenirs. The bricks are disappearing. The tourists and the bananas come and go. like the wind, while I lie in.reviving waters watching a weary tomcat, with battered ears and a bloody nose, slip between the broad, green stalks. My foot dances in the water's jet. If that cat and 1 were shadow-casting b u n 11 n g the shadow would look less like Carnival, more like Ash Wednesday. University of Idaho students confront each other over gay dorm resident MOSCOW, Idaho, Wednesday, Feb. 22 (AP)—Residents of the University of Idaho's Upham Hall have expressed their dislike of having a homosexual in their midsl in some questionable ways thai have gotten the attention of other students. About a dozen people—mostly students—marched from the Student Union Building to the residence hall Tuesday to protest harassment of a gay friend who lives at Upham Hall. As protesters carried signs and passed out fliers, some Upham Hall residents taunted them and yelled obscenities from dorms windows. The gay student, who asked not to be named, has been verbally abused. Computer-generated messages also have been posted on a bulletin board at the dorm: "We. the men of Upham Hall, do not care for faggots. In fact, get out."' one read. Signs have been ripped off his door, and insults have been written on his message board.

Ore., Thursday, Feb. 23 (AP)—Nike is including an HIV-positive athlete in a new promotion for its "Just Do It" campaign. While many advertisers have carefully steered away from the AIDS issue, Nike launched an ad earlier this month featuring runner Ric Munoz. The 30-second commercial shows Munoz running through Malibu Canyon State Park in Los Angeles. As ihe scenery changes, captions say: "Rick Munoz, Los Angeles; 80 miles every week; 10 marathons every year; HIV positive; Just Do It." "Nike has never been a company that looks for the safest solution," spokesperson Keith Peters said. "Our feeling is that HIV causes a strong response, but we wouldn't want it to cause one of pity, rather one of understanding about what determination really is." "Finally, at least one mainstream marketer is acknowledging real ity—that there are millions of people living with HIV," said Bradley Johnson, a Los Angeles editor of Advertising Age magazine. Munoz, 36, works as a legal secretary in West Hollywood, Calif. He is gay and has known since 1987 that he is infected with the virus thai causes AIDS. "I really never let it affect me," he said. "It was something new to deal with, just another in a long line of challenges." The ad fits Nike's "Just Do It" slogan, said Jack Cox. a member of the Portland-based HIV Advocacy Council who was diagnosed with the virus 10 years ago. "It's an affirmation that says, 'Do what you can. Just do your life,'" he said. "The message is right on." On Wednesday. Olympic diver Greg Louganis became ihe latest star athlete to acknowledge that he has AIDS. \/J kcCl" c'o Tkevy :y e*\.e**v\ sC**Z^<k\ 54-yr "? VWlv<J Blo^k tie? 1
