City reconsiders commuter rail deal,''

ISAAC BABCOCK
B'SEFER k TA F


WTVinrer Park commissioners grap-
VV pled once more about the future
of the commuter rail system rMonday,
.this time including Orange County
Commissioner Bill Segal in the mix.
The Commission had raised ques-
tions-over the past month about Win-
ter Park taxpayers being forced to pay
more than their fair share to help bring
the rail system through the county.
The city would have a stop along
the way in its Central Park, where an
Amtrak line currently runs. That's been
argued by Orange County as an advan-
tage to the ci %, but Commissioners said
that Winter Park residents would have
to pay far more than Orange County


Arts hurting for funding


JESSICA SUNDAY
GUEST REPORTER
Going back to the drawing board is some-
thing most local non-profit arts groups
are all-too-familiar with this year. Due to a
sudden drop in arts funding last year, small
and large culturally vibrant businesses are
cutting costs and programs using their
creativity not for art, but to survive.
"Many sponsors are thinking long and
hard about donating this year," said Deb-
bie Komanski, executive director for the
Albin Polasek Museum and Sculpture Gar-
dens in Winter Park. "We are used to run-
ning on tight budgets, and we are creative
and have more volunteers this year."
The Polasek counts on community and
government support to operate. Both
streams of funding are drying up, includ-
ing from major arts supporter United Arts
of Central Florida, a government-business
fundraising alliance.
The arts funding draught didn't start
with the recent crash of America's banking

ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF

-Things were very boring
at Showalter Field for two
and a half quarters of foot-
- ball on Friday, but don't tell
that to Winter Park High
School's defense. They held
a stalemate with Colonial
for most of the game before
the Wildcats broke it open
to win 17-7.
The Wildcats' Patrick
Mputu flexed his scoring
muscle with a four-yard
run to open the scoring, but

then the Cats' offense went silent.
And when Colonial's quarterback
Steven Sanders broke free to race 70
yards downfield for a touchdown,
the score was tied 7-all.
The score would remain matted
as both teams' defenses stopped
heavily run-weighted offenses, fre-
quently before they could pass the
line of scrimmage.
Only five minutes remained on
the clock when the Wildtats' de-
fense took it upon themselves to
make a score. And when a Colo-
nial ball popped out onto the field,
215-pound defensive end Delson
Bernabel picked up the fumble and
charged into the end zone for the
second touchdown of the game. A
field goal would be the final score.
The win righted a sinking season
for the Wildcats, who had lost three
straight games against three of the
toughest teams in Central Florida.
They're now 2-3, but face the No. 2
team in the area this Friday, Oct. 17
- Apopka, which is 5-1 this year.
A win will be difficult for the
Wildcats. Apopka's only loss this
year came to a team from South Pa-
nola, Miss., that hadn't lost a game
in five years. And Apopka only fell
by 10 points. They meet at 7:30 p.m.
Friday in Apopka.

trouble against Wildwood last Fri-

day, as the visiting Wildcats ran
circles around the defense in a 23-6
win on the Saints' home field.
It already was an unusual game
from the start for the Saints, who
found themselves rapidly driven
back by the Wildwood Wildcats to
near their own goal line, and then
a sack gave Wildwood a safety. The


game's scoring would open up a
rare 2-0.
The Saints' prolific offense found
itself cut short by a seemingly all-
seeing defense that held running
back Austin Barton to 86 yards -
leEs than half what he had been av-
eraging as the Saints' offensive pow-
erhouse.


Maybe it was the Saints' offensive
line, which allowed enough pene-
tration to not only slow Barton, but
let the Wildcats sack quarterback
J.J. Wartski nine times.
The Saints, now 3-2, travel this
week, facing Berkeley Prep at 7 p.m.
Thursday, Oct. 16, in Tampa.

Mom spends a month on a bicycle


JENNY ANDREASSON
OBSERVER STAFF


Alicia' Mandigo's foot has been
pushing a different pedal lately. The
Winter Park resident ditched her
gas-drinking car to pedal around
town on her bicycle for an entire
month.
She chronicled the September
project through a blog on her Web
site, ProjectMandigo.com.
The idea came to her after she
worked on MyRegion.org, an Orlan-
do Chamber of Commerce project
that proposed plans for pedestri-
an-friendly communities. With its
continuous network of sidewalks,
Winter Park fits that exact model,
said Mandigo, a work-from-home
broadcast journalist and producer.
Jack Zimmer, owner of the Win-
ter Park bike shop LocoMotion
where Mandigo got her gear, said he
and his staff already ride their bikes
a majority of the time. "If anybody
had a reason to quit driving that
SUV, this is a great place to be able
to do that," he said.
During the month, Mandigo
biked her 8-year-old daughter, Cael-


an, to her voice lessons and to play
dates, and made almost daily trips
to pick up groceries at the Whole
Foods Market, which is only about
a mile from her home. It took about
the same amount of time as in a car,
she said.
Her bike has two rear baskets,
one fitted with a cooler to make sure
milk and other groceries stayed cold
on her way back. She carried eggs in
her backpack, after a ride in the bas-
ket proved fatal for one carton.
But there were a handful of nec-
essary car trips, such as when her
husband, Brian, needed a ride to
the airport. "Even if you live in a
community that is exceptionally
well suited to walking or biking, it
is nearly impossible to give up your
car entirely," she said.
While it worked for her, she said,
it may not work for everyone. She
has flexibility in her schedule be-
cause she-works from home and she
only has one child, who rode on a
"trail-a-bike," a child's bike that at-
taches to an adult bike.
"I do consider it a personal proj-
ect," she said. "However at the same
time, I am hoping a few people real-

ize it is doable." Giving up cars com-
pletely may be drastic, but biking
once or twice a week to get grocer-
ies isn't, she said.
Mandigo's friend Bob Giguere, an
independent filmmaker, said what
she did was inspiring. He's been tell-
ing folks about the Web site and one
family decided to pick up where the

com/bikinginstead to monitor the
Methot-family's journey.
"There are people who say we
should be doing this (using cars
less)," he said. "It's a different thing
to do it. Will people change? That's
the big unknown."


TRAIN I Winter Park leaders say 99-year deal would cost generations too much


< continued from the front page

taxpayers in order to help fund the
system.
Commissioner Beth Dillaha had
said the city's taxpayers would be
taxed double.
On Monday, Mayor David Strong
agreed.
"I'd like to see ... a fairer burden
for the city of Winter Park on the
cost of this. I think we should pay
no more, no less than any other
citizen of Orange County," he said.


"My sole concern is that we pay our
fair share and no more than our
fair share."
Dillaha added that she fears the
city may be bound to pay escalat-
ing costs in the future, due to there
being no cap in the city's financial
liability.
"There is no cap or no safety net
for those costs," she said: "It's a 99-
year agreement with only one 60-
day period for opting out. After that
60 days, that's it."
That 60-day period for the city


to decide to opt out of a continu-
ing contract to fund the rail system
would occur in 2017. After that, the
city would be locked in to help pay
for a remainder of the 99-year con-
tract to operate the rail system.
Commissioner Margie Bridges
said that today's decisions would
impact generations to come.
"I think we all share a desire for a
regional transportation solution,"
she said. "But we are shouldering
an unfair burden ... It's a tax burden
that I, my children, and my grand-


children will bear."
Segal balked at the idea of re-
visiting contract negotiations, but
said he was willing to listen to con-
cerns.
"We want to work with you," he
said. "But I don't think there's any
appetite to revisit any deal points."'
Commissioners agreed to draft
a letter listing concerns about the
contract and send it to Orange
County officials. They'll discuss the
issue at the next Commission meet-
ing.

system, though, said Margot
Knight, president and CEO
of United Arts of Central
Florida. Funding started
sinking last year as spon-
sorships fell, along with the
largest loss of public sup-
port to date and a $350,000
loss in government funding.
Major cuts to the United
Arts budget mean less mon-


ey for local arts businesses
that get a large chunk of
grant money from the orga-
nization. Knight reported an
11 percent drop in funding
for the organizations that
United Arts supports for
this fiscal year. The number
of businesses the company
supports will not change,
only the amount of grants it
can offer, Knight said.

Russell Theatre at Rollins
College is "painfully" less,
said Olivia Horn, audience
services coordinator. The
theatre is 50 percent behind
last year's fundraising.
There's no short path to
salvation, Knight said. In-
stead- local businesses are
looking out as far as 2010
or 2011 for a turnaround.
"We have to hunker down.
and hang on for a couple of
years," she said.
Jeff Prutsman, former ac-
tivities marketing director
for the Festival of Orches-
tras and the Bach Festival,
said more cuts are likely
next year.
Donations are about 2
percent of total household
income for a metro market
and tend to track the stock
market, Prutsman said. Get-
ting that money, as he not-


ed in a strategy paper from
1998, is about marketing -
not about the products.
Most of the money still
has to come from govern-
ment and sponsorships for
such businesses to operate,
Knight said. Without that
funding, the arts suffer.
"Each year has progres-
sively gotten tighter, but
the prices have shot up so
dramatically, so rapidly this
year; we're really feeling the
sting," Horn said.
Horn said her staff is ex-
perimenting with new ways
to raise funds such as creat-
ing an audience newslet-
ter containing the theater's
"wish list" and making more
personal contact with cur-
rent donors.
The impact on quality of
life with these cuts, Polasek's
Komanski said, will be grave.


"It's more than just seeing a
painting and thinking it's
pretty ... what the quality of
life with respect to the arts
does for the development of
someone's being and society
as a whole is substantial."
Michael and Aimee Ka-
kos, who donate to Winter
Park arts groups including
the Polasek, Charles Hosmer
Morse Museum of American
Art and Cornell Fine Arts
Museum, agree. They said in
an e-mail from London that
the effects of cutting back
programming in the com-
munity would be devastat-
ing. "One of the reasons we
chose Winter Park and Cen-
tral Florida in general," they
wrote, "was that it offers this
nice variety of upmarket en-
tertainment, which we have
grown used to in our 33-year
life in London and Europe."


A weekend for art in the park
Winter Park's annual
tradition, the Winter Park
Autumn Art Festival, filled
Central Park this weekend
with a mix of painters, pho-
tographers,-sculptors, craft-
ers and more, all greeted
with delightful weather and
a throng of art lovers.

Kissimmee. "With the economy and
gas prices, this location was easier
for our customers to get to," Rogan
said.
The newly opened So Sweet Bou-
tique carries holiday dresses and
outfits from infant sizes through
teens. Themes include christening
and first communion dresses, pag-
eant dresses and gowns, quincean-
era dresses, bat mitzvah dresses, and
bar mitzvah suits and tuxedos.
Formal accessories are conve-
niently available at the store, such
as girls and boys shoes as well as pet-
ticoats, fancy socks and tights, veils,
white gloves, and tiaras.
So Sweet Boutique will be expand-
ing their gift department- as well,
which varies from silver spoons and
mugs, adorable baby booties, and
heirloom jewelry to trendy tote bags
and glamour kits.
The dressing rooms have been con-
structed to better accommodate the
size of ballroom gowns, and private
dressing areas have been created for
boys trying on tuxedos and suits.
Tuxedo rental will also be available
and often proves more cost effective
for older boys, Rogan explained, be-
cause they often want the more ex-
pensive brand names.
Leighann Barna said she returns
to So Sweet Boutique every year to
select a holiday dress for her 9-year-
old daughter, Kaitlyn. "The clothes
are beautiful and really good quali-
ty," she said. "They are always so nice
and give your child way more atten-
tion than a department store."
Barna said she especially likes
that someone always greets them
when they come in. "They help you
find what you need, even if it means
going through catalogs to order it,"


she said.
In an effort to make formal dress-
ing and accessorizing more afford-
able, Rogan and Powers go to great
lengths to offer less expensive op-
tions. With 10 different children's
formal wear manufacturers, So
Sweet Boutique can offer a variety of
dresses and styles by preferred man-
ufacturers such as Dimples Apparel,
Bijan Kids and Tiffany Designs.
"Some of the labels are pricey be-
cause a lot of money was spent in
marketing so the kids know them
more," Rogan said.
"We offer those and they are fabu-
lously made. We try not to buy any-
thing that doesn't have at least a par-
tial lining or a petticoat," she said.
"There are other manufacturers
'who are not very well-known that
are in the garment districts out in
LA. and New York, and they are half
the price. It's not that the dress is
any cheaper, they just didn't spend
the money on marketing and go to
the shows," Rogan said.
"I know how hard it is to shop
with children. I enjoy knowing that
each little girl or boy feels confident,
and that we are able to help Mom or
Dad find affordable formal wear for
kids," she said.
"Kids are a lot more complicated
than people realize," Rogan said.
"They have opinions too. We want to
make sure they feel awesome."



The online store at SoSweetBoutique.com
offers a vast selection of dresses, gowns,
tuxedos and other accessories. You .can
also visit the location at State Road 436 just.
south of Red Bug Lake Road from 11 a.m. to
6 p.m. Monday-Friday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

AMY K.D. TOBIK
Elhr, ;STAFF

maginations soar on
Halloween as nightfall
stirs frightening visions of
witches, devils and ghosts,
harkening to thousands of
years of Celtic history.
Out of a fear of the
unknown and the long,
dark winter that soon ap-
proached, the Celtics creat-
ed somewhat terrifying rit-
uals surrounding the nigh.t.
Oct. 31 marked the end of
their harvest and possibly
their food supply, threaten-
ing their livelihood. It was
believed the dead returned
to roam the earth in dark-
ness.
As Christianity spread to
the Celtics by the seventh
century, Pope Boniface IV
designated Nov. 1 as All
Saints' Day, a time to honor
saints and martyrs. Later,
the church named Nov. 2 as
All Souls' Day to commemo-
rate the dead.
As beliefs and customs
have evolved over time, the
traditions related to Hallow-
een have taken on a more
lighthearted approach. As
a result, Halloween has be-
come the second-most com-
mercially popular and cel-
ebrated holiday during the
year, with a combination
of town-sponsoied events,
neighborhood parades and
parties. More than 1 billion
pounds of pumpkins were
produced last year for the
holiday, according to the
USDA, at a value of $117 mil-
lion.
As the night ofAllhallows
Eve approaches, there are
plenty of community events
to put your family in the
Halloween mood, from fall
festivals and indoor trick-
or-treating to locally spon-
sored children's parties.

It's good vision


A reader recently wrote and
accused me of being a fas-
cist for supporting Barack
Obama. I found that an in-
teresting accusation as only
my dearest friends know
*of my latent fascist ten-
dencies. It's the uniforms,
don't-cha see jodhpurs
and whips and the pistols-
on-the-hip thing and, oh, of
course the frequent Marx
Brothers' goofy hand-jive
salutes. Yes, by all means,
sign me up. Let's have more
authority in our lives. Does
that mean I have to give up
wearing pajamas in public?
What kind of self-respect-
ing fascist wears jammies in
public? Hmmm.
Let's go to the source.
"Fascism, which was not
afraid to call itself reaction-
ary... does not hesitate to
call itself illiberal and anti-
liberal," said Benito Musso-
lini. Hmmm.
I thought I would ex-
plain today why I support
Barack Obama for presi-
dent.
I am pro-choice. I will


not vote for a candidate
who does not support a
woman's right to repro-
ductive choice. A woman's
body is her own. She, and
only she will determine for
herself her future. This is a
deal-breaker for me.
I want to end the war in
Iraq now. I do not want any
troops stationed in Iraq, or
the Middle East. I remain
unconvinced that our war
policies in Afghanistan are
wise.
I want America to be re-
spected in the world. I want
America to be known for its
ideals, not its torture poli-
cies. I want the Bush policy
of pre-emptive wai-s-of-
choice against non-hostiles
repudiated. I want America
to work proactively with
both our allies and our an-
tagonists.
I want Barack Obama
elected because he is intel-
ligent, literate, savvy and
resourceful. That he is an
accomplished black man
is a definite plus to me. It
will be a watershed historic


moment for America, that
the nation can transcend
its violent history of racism
and elect a qualified man to
be president regardless of
his color or race. It will be
an electric moment for the
world, too. America walks
its talk about equality and
opportunity. I will, indeed,
feel enormous pride in the
nation if his election comes
to pass.
I want the integrity of
working for the federal
government returned. I do
not want political hacks
appointed to jobs in the
Justice Department. I want
competent, effective lead-
ers for our government
agencies (FEMA comes to
mind). I want our intel-
ligence agencies de-politi-
cized and America's finest
minds working to give our
elected officials accurate,
factual and verifiable as-
sessments of the world.
I want the current Re-
publican culture, that all
government is suspect and
therefore unworthy of sup-
port shown to be the short-
sighted nonsense that it is.
I want those government
agencies that have legiti-
mate oversight and regula-
tory responsibilities to be
reinvigorated with smart
men and women to pursue
a mission that prepares
and protects the nation
from corruption and the
excesses of partisan zeal-
otry. (Think: financial, ag-
ricultural, energy, judiciary,
environmental, national


parks, pharmacological and
media.)
,I want America's econ-
omy to be put on a sound
financial footing. This is
critical. It is our highest and
most immediate priority.
I want an energy policy
that acknowledges that
regardless of where we get
our petroleum we are de-
pendent on foreign oil and
will be until we are not. To
that end energy indepen-
dence I want an energy
plan "Marshall Plan equiva-
lent" that commits the na-
tion its resources to
securing achievable energy
goals across all sectors of
the American economy by
2020. It's good vision!
I want fewer Americans
born into poverty. To that
end, I want birth control
to be safe, available and af-
fordable (free if necessary).
I want responsible birth
control taught and encour-
aged in America. I want
every child born in America
planned and wanted. I want
to reverse Bush policies
that teach abstinence-only
as public policy. It is an in-
fantile, repulsive approach
to human sexuality and
needs to be repudiated and
eliminated. For the world,
too.
I want the elimination of
poverty in America to once
again become a national
topic of conversation.
That what the least of us
experiences is a reflection
on us all. And because we
have failed in the past (to


eliminate poverty) does not
mean new and different ap-
proaches are not called for,
nay, required.
I didn't mention health
care reform, entitlements
or any other number of is-
sues just as important or
pressing. My list of 10 could
have been in any order.
They happen to be in this
order, as I considered them.
I believe/feel/think that Ba-
rack Obama's election will
More certainly and effec-
tively deal with these issues
than a John McCain victory.
Most definitely.
One last thing: I want
full, public and exhaustive
Congressional hearings on
how America got into the
Iraq war. I want chapter
and verse. Same goes for
our current financial melt-
down. To avoid such insan-
ity in the future, let's have a
full accounting now. I want
hides hung on the wall for
decades to come.
"The next step [in a Fas-
cist movement] is to fasci-
nate the fools and muzzle
the intelligent, by emotion-
al excitement on the one
hand and terrorism on the
other," observed Bertrand
Russell. How prescient. Is
that Sarah Palin's role? To
fascinate the fools?

Letters W the dl1oDT


Orange school system 'anti-Semitic'
The Jewish year is 5769 and the
outlook once again from the Or-
ange County Public Schools district
is callousness and insensitivity
peppered with a pinch of anti-
Semitism.
Last year, my daughter Rachel,
an honors student at Chain of
Lakes Middle School in Orlando,
was absent from class to attend
Yom Kippur services. She was greet-
ed the next day to find that major
language arts exam was scheduled.
We complained. The school district
hid behind bureaucracy.
This year, since the school dis-
trict policies are oriented toward
Christians, we obtained advance
permission for the absence and
went the extra step of having each
teacher sign a note acknowledging
my daughter's absence.
What do we find when we return
home from services? A recorded
announcement from the school
advising that Rachel was absent
without notice and requires a note
from her parents.
Adding insult to injury, as oc-
curred last year, a teacher sched-
uled a test the day she returned.
Just in case there was any question
regarding this school district's lack
of sensitivity and border-line anti-
Semitism, a district-wide writing
exam occurred on Yom Kippur -
the holiest day of the entire Jewishl


calendar.
Perhaps it is unfair for me to
categorize the district's actions
in such harsh terms. I'm sure that
Superintendent Ronald Blocker
would have scheduled a district-
wide exam on Christmas or Easter
with equal callousness.
My question: Is this merely a
district-wide anti-Semitic policy or
part of a statewide curriculum?

Vote no on State Amendment 4
Conservation easements are good.
let's get that out straight. They as-
sist in preserving pristine land
across Florida for future genera-
tions. However, Amendment -I is
much more than preserving land
and preventing development.
First, it could very well allow all
land owners holding an "agricul-
tural assessment" or other current-
ly non-developed property des-
ignation to declare a "permanent
conservation easement," whether
the land was even developable
or not! Declaring a conservation
easement means they will not pay
any property taxes and other local
taxpayers will. have to make up the
shortfall! Some opponents indi-
cate this is not good politics to not
support the basic infrastructure of
their county.
Secondly, although the amend-


ment is leaving it up to the Florida
Legislature to define "conserva-
tion," in recent years all attempts
to redefine what constitutes an
agricultural assessment have been
soundly defeated in favor of the
agricultural and development in-
terests, much to the detriment of
regular homeowners. We need a
better amendment to know who
will qualify and the resulting costs
to each county!
Third, since the Florida Taxation
and Reform Commission did not
perform a standard Staff Financial
Impact Analysis, taxpayers and,
most especially, county appraisal
offices statewide, have absolutely
no idea how this reduction in taxes
will affect their county's operating
budgets.
Personally, I was able to make
a baseline estimate of a $4 million
impact to Leon County where I
live, should all 1,800 current prop-
erties designated as agricultural
take the "permanent" exemption.
This amount, however, does not
include the many other properties
that could possibly take the "non-
permanent" exemption, again,
lowering a county's tax base even
further!
Georgia is also attempting to
create.conservation easements,
however their plan is to also guar-
antee each county a maximum
reduction in taxcs! Anmendmenit


does not offer any similar assuranc-
es to Florida counties. Due to the
dire economic situation in Florida,
this may not even be feasible.
Although Amendment 4 has
good intentions of preserving pris-
tine land, it does not give assurance
that taxpayers will not have a huge
shortfall in basic county operating
budgets starting in 2010. Therefore,
please vote no on Amendment 4
and encourage the amendment be
re-written.

Iraq war's link to financial mess
The final blow, the last nail in the
coffin, the double whammy to the
John McCain presidential cam-
paign w ill be the revelation that
our financial disaster was the result
of the Bush team's with IMceCam's
support ill-conceived and ill-
executed Iriq disaster.
It's a matter of time before
someone connects these two dots.
You could be the first. Of course
nominee Barack Obama risks being
accused as a contributor because
he first supported the war, but it
may be worth it if McCain gets a
larger share of the blame.

The Laughs On Me
(A very tall tale)

I guess I'm just not with

Remember when
Jerry Seinfeld came to the
end of his TV series? He was
a "must watch" for years. -
Seinfeld was offered the
moon if he would "stay on"
a while longer. Jerry shook
his now graying head and
said "No." Finis.
So what's my point?
My point my confes-
sion is that I never even
once watched "Seinfeld."
Not once! In those glorious
years when the rest of the
country was having a ball
with Jerry, I was "on the
outside," not even peeking
in.
Once, somewhere back
in lost decades, I was
searching on TV for a David
Brinkley re-run and experi-
enced a chance encounter
with Jerry Seinfeld. That
very popular star spoke a
line that surprised me with
its complete inanity.
What surprised me even
more was the thunder-


ous roar of laughter and
applause that emerged
from the TV loudspeaker.
I sat there feeling "out
of it." What was so funny?
Then a Seinfeld colleague
said something equally
inane. He received the iden-
tical raucous laughter that
Seinfeld got.
I'm a little slow, I admit
it. But I finally caught on
that all the laughter was
"canned," and that these
"funny" TV stars were
enjoying the best insurance
policy that the entertain-
ment industry ever con-
trived.
The most vapid of jerks
command an army of taped
mannequins who roar with
maniacal laughter at any-
thing and everything when
a button is pushed.
I once went through
a shattering experience
regarding laughter, and I
recognize, that my attitude
toward "ha ha!" may no
longer be "normal" (there's
a real "vestigial structure"
of a word for you!).
You see, about 15 years
before my present beautiful
child-bride was born, I had
decided having dabbled
around disastrously in
matrimony several times
- to give marriage one last
chance.
I was living in Sicily
and singing opera at the
Massimo in Palermo. My
biggest problem was to get
the opera house to pay me
enough to cover what the
local "claques" charged me
for not booing me off the
stage, the routine treat-
ment given to stranieri
(foreigners) particularly
stranieriAmericani of non-
Italian mien, who dared to
sing Italian opera in Italy.
You see, there was this
girl... (Isn't there always in
every story that grabs you?)


Well, anyway, this girl
who hung around the stage
door looked as though she
had been born in the pret-
tiest Sicilian garden just as
the "sole" was rising in the
"cielo."
Her name was Fiordiligi,.
and her lips were naturally
the dark red color of fresh
radicchio. Her figure had
the ripeness of well-tended
fruit. Her eyes were black as
sin, a thought which kept
me awake at night.
I was an alien, and had
to bribe a magistrate no
problem in Taormina to
marry us.
There we were in Sicily,
with me singing away
and her looking the way
Lollobrigida did before
the makeup folks tried to
outdo God. The marriage
didn't work out, of course,
or I wouldn't be telling you
this story.
What went wrong is a
tip-off Is to what put me
on a shrink's couch on
both sides of the Atlantic
for a long time afterward.
You see, I always thought
of myself as quite a funny
guy. My quick wit may not
be Mark Twain's, but every
now and then I come up
with one-liners that would
have gotten laughs at
Grossinger's, even in the
old days when Henny was
still cock of the walk.
Well, anyhow, here goes.
This is what busted
Fiordiligi and me up ... See,
she thought she was very
funny. But she didn't think
I was funny at all.
Marriage between a pair
of wisecracking people has
got to be a two-way street
laugh-wise, with a kind of
noblesse oblige give-and--
take rapprochement.
I would say something
pretty damned clever to
Fiordiligi, and she would


* look straight at me without
any change of expression
at all!
If I came up with some-
thing that would have frac-
tured my old Westside pals
in New York, she would
turn slowly and look wist-
fully out the window at
Mount Etna off in the dis-
tance.
Let me tell you some-
thing ... You don't antago-
nize a Sicilian girl who was
dealt at birth a straight
flush of older brothers.
The word for revenge,
"vendetta," was invented by
a beautiful Sicilian gal who
felt slighted by a remark
from a TenoreAmericano
stupid.
One day I complained to
her that when I was saying
things that were very funny,
jealousy was the only thing
that could be keeping her
from laughing. She gave me
a quizzical look, then nod-
ded and smiled with a flash
of dazzling white teeth as
she buttoned her black ,
blouse up tight under her
chin.
The next day I said
something screamingly
funny. Nothing happened.
As soon as I looked away,
I heard Fiordiligi laugh very
loud. I quickly turned back
to her, and she wasn't even
smiling.
For a couple of weeks
this kind of game went
on her laughing aloud
at funny things I said, but
only when I wasn't looking
at her.
Slowly a fact became
clear. All of Fiordiligi's
laughs were alike like
identical. I decided to try
something ...
I told her something
funny that I had read in the
Italian equivalent of the
Inquirer. Then I turned my
head away. -


When I heard her loud
laughter start up, I immedi-
ately turned and faced her.
Her mouth was closed!
I glanced down at her
hands. Both her fists were
clenched.
I slowly opened her left
hand. It was empty.
I opened her right hand.
In its palm lay an electric-
button "remote sender."
Immediately I under-
stood what Fiordiligi had
been doing. She had been
sending her own "canned"
laughter, through our ste-
reo's central tape recorder,
into every room of our
house.
Whenever I said some-
thing I thought was funny,
she would simply wait until
I wasn't looking at her, and
then press the "laughter"
button in her hand.
Like Jerry Seinfeld's
laughs, mine were loud and
identical.
As you can imagine, after
that it was all downhill for
us. If you can't trust your
wife's laughter, what can
you trust?
Seinfeld may have been
the funniest guy ever on
TV. But I don't trust any-
one who would use phony
laughter to bamboozle
people.
My new wifie, from
Yonkers, sings leads on
Broadway. She asked me
yesterday, "What's that
funny thing you keep
doing?"
"Whaddaya mean?" I
asked.
"Well, whenever I laugh
at anything, you sorta jerk
your head around and stare
at my hands. You're gonna
like break your stupid neck
doing that."
I found myself dart-
ing a glance at her hands
... and wishing they were
Fiordiligi's.

Do you ever lose patience
with McCain when he
debates? Do you wonder
why he seems to avoid
attacking with the facts
that would win him points?

If any of the Founding .
Fathers had bought a house
with a mortgage that he
should have known was too
much for him, he would
have been foreclosed No
one would have stepped in
to cover his loss. "Freedom"
included the right to lose,
and take the responsibility
for one's own actions.

I was raised in the old
South, and to me, after hallf


a century away, the South
still maintains most of its
charms. It's in the area of
"manners" that there are
differences. The speed of
modern life has taken its
toll and populations these
days have backgrounds
that come from all over. In
the '20s and '30s Southern
boys were told to stand
when a lady entered the
room. Little things like that
are long missing. One used
to hear the words "under
obligation" frequently
from grown folks when
they discussed their social
plans. There was a clear-
cut custom of not going to
someone else's house for a
party or dinner until one
had repaid the "obligation"
of having been last in the
other's home. My mother
would say, "We must invite
the Smiths in for dinner
soon, we are under obliga-
tion to them." An invitation
to a restaurant could repay
the obligation we were
under. An elderly Southern
lady whom N\ c know well
said the other day, "There


are people who have been
in my home for dinner four
or five times, and I've never
ever even seen the inside of
their homes, or been invit-.
ed out by.them."
Times change, customs
change ...

Charley Reese quips,
"Politicians create prob-
lems, and then campaign
against them."

Even after all this time, the
Sun never says to the Earth,
"You owe me something."

We conservatives have rea-
son to be worried. For eight
years George W. promised
much and delivered insuffi-
ciently. Now, McCain seems
bent on losing by default.

Will the fact that Obama
hais raised much more
than John McCain get the


Republicans up off their
"rusty-dusties?"

Will Rogers once said of
taxes, "I'm more interested
in the return of my money,
than on my money."

Bill Kristol says that
McCain himself might
bring a few shocks as to his
Supreme Court appointees.

The refusal to vote for oil
drilling can logically bene-
fit the Global Marxists who
are bent on reducing the
U.S. to a third-rate nation.
Is George Soros rubbing
his hands in glee? If we had
acted in such ways in the
pre-World War II days, we'd
all be speaking German.

"Life's tough... it's even
tougher if you're stupid."

The first in Central Florida, Positron Emission Mammography is a new
and highly sophisticated technology that provides the sharpest and most
detailed images of breast tumors available today. With PEM, doctors can
detect breast cancer at the earliest possible stage, in some cases as small
as a grain of rice. This new technology will add to the already extensive
breast imaging capabilities available at Florida Hospital.
