Transcript APRIL 10, 1987/MONTROSE VOICE 23 OH, I CM* SEE SMOKEY, AU-WGOT-Ht-UST PICKS> KW> SPOT TWIT TOR ME- The Yellow Man's Burden The Innocent Bystander By Arthur Hoppe I had read nervously about the fall of the once-mighty dollar, but nothing had prepared me for the arrival of Mr. Yutaka Hibachi at my door. Mind you, he was polite and outwardly considerate as he introduced himself to me and handed me his card. What alarmed me was the announced purpose of his visit. "I wish to buy your house," he said with a little smile and a small bow. I was about to tell him, in the interests of international friendship, to get lost. But several recent experiences stayed my tongue. One was the way the edge of my paint scraper disappeared into the window sill in the bathroom last Sunday; another was the growing brown stain in the bedroom ceiling which has been much on my mind lately; and third was a small noise I heard coming from the floor joists under the living room the other night: it sounded like chewing. "Come right in, Mr. Hibachi," I said. (What did I care about international friendship?) "You're planning on moving here to live?" "Live?" he said, looking surprised. "Here? In this house? Oh, no, I am doing very well with my company in Tokyo, thank you. But my wife thought it would be nice to have a little rustic retreat. Some place to get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life." "Oh," I said. "Well, we are a couple of minutes away from downtown. But, look, it's only two bedrooms and a breakfast nook. It's not very big." "Yes," he agreed, "that's why we're buying the block. Tell me, would those interesting— ah— furnishings be included?" "I suppose I could let you have the tee-vee, the stereo and the VCR," I said. "Ah, yes," he said. "Do you have anything that is not Japanese?" "Oh, sure," I said, picking up a tea cozy my Aunt Cora had knitted. "There's this." You would've thought I'd offered him the Saudi crown jewels, the way his eyes lit up. "An authentic native handicraft!" he exclaimed, holding it up to the light. "How much are you asking for this indigenous treasure?" "Well," I said, "I happen to know she could use $10 to buy into tonight's Double Keno Game at St. Jude's." "Ten dollars?" said Mr. Hibachi. "How much is that in real money?" He punched his wrist calculator. "Why, that's less that 1500 yen!" he said . incredulously. "How many of these can this Aunt Cora turn out a day?" "Oh, maybe one a week," I said "More if there's something good on tee-vee." His shoulders sagged. "It's the poor working conditions and lack of technology that keep you Americans from reaching the economic takeoff point," he said. "It's no wonder you're a debtor nation, forced to buy your necessities from the advanced industrial powers." "Now, wait a minute," I said. "Please," he said, holding up his hand, "I happen to admire the way you easygoing Americans drift through life as though you didn't have a care in the world. We hardworking, ambitious overachievers could learn a lot from you." "Hold on there." I said. "Meanwhile, we'll get you the technical help you need to make something of yourselves, like an automated, digitally calibrated knitting machine for your Aunt Cora. It is the duty of us technologically advanced societies to assist you underdeveloped people in pulling yourself up by your own bootstraps so that you may become our equal trading partners. Someday." That did it. The heck with international friendship. I did what any vengeful victim of economic colonialism would do: I sold him my house. ©1987 (S.F.)

April 16. 1987: ARIES—While this may not be the dark night of the soul, it's no bed of roses either. It isn't realty that things are so bad, more that you have some important and difficult decisions to make when you'd rather go out and play. Sorry, Aries. Take care of buiness. TAURUS—An ability to laugh at yourself and see the humor in your ways can be a valuable asset. You won't be doing things much differently, butyou'H be able to stand back and at least giggle. Meanwhile, your plans and schemes aretaking nice shape. GEMINI—Have you learned to go with the flow yet? If so, you're swimming in some fine waters this time. If not, you may be in over your head. "Go with the flow" doesn't mean the same thing as getting carried away. The surface may be calm, but there are rip-tides and crosscurrents. CANCER—You can learn a lot about yourself. Your ability to stick with it and plan through may surprise you and impress others. Even if you always thought you could, really doing it is another thing. Congratulations. Keep on keeping on. LEO—Everyone should have a Leo for a partner right now. You've got the kind of mind and energy that knows how to give anyone the best. The danger is that you may want to give everyone your best. One at a time, please, one at a time. VIRGO—In thinking about your planning for the future, don't forget what the present requires of you. Someone close may be upset with a space case of a mate if you do. You're "there," but where else are you? Don't be isolated in dreamland. LIBRA—You were almost too hot for words last time! Now that you've cooled down a bit, merely glowing warmly, why not bring your friends together for some entertainment? Spring's here, and if anyone knows how to celebrate its pleasures, you do. SCORPIO—While everyone else is planning vacations and trips, you'll be more than satisfied to stay home. In your unusual calm and peacefulness, small everyday things will give you great pleasure and joy. Stop to smell the roses! SAGITTARIUS—You can give your best to the group now. Whether it's family, friends, business associates or an organization you're part of, you can do a lot for everyone involved. Your lack of selfishness and desire to give makes you extremely attrative. CAPRICORN—Competent is the word for Capricorns now. Calm, cool, and collected are others that describe the way you're feeling. There's a nice give-and- take with lovers, and a better understanding with coworkers. It all adds up to a fortunate time. AQUARIUS—In the serarch for that perfect lover, you keep on running into yourself. Self-discovery? While you learn some things you don't really want to know, in the long run you gain a lot. Becomming a bigger and better person' isn't always easy. PISCES—The only thing that can stop you now are self doubt and self-imposed limitations that are no longer valid. Your drive and energy could take you into a whole new period of life and understanding. Don't stop yourself. Go with the mighty flow.
