Thursday, Oct. 13 2011 Page 10 Winter Park / Maitland Observer Lifestyles The s and s were periods of monumental change and upheav al in American history. It was the era of the civil rights movement, the Vietnam War, the assassination of President Kenne dy, the emergence of psychedelic hippies, daring fashions and mu time. But despite the events that characterized a turbulent time, most baby boomers reminisce on the era with great nostalgia. For residents of Winter Park, memories of places such as the Beef and Bottle, where customers knew the staff just as well as the menu, and the iconic Langford Hotel, where President Reagan and his wife celebrated their 40th anniversary, are unforgettable. But not everyone can think back to a time when telephones were not portable and there were other things to do during the day that did not include searching the Internet for YouTube videos or socializing with friends via Face book. On Wednesday, Oct. 19, the Winter Park Historical Museum hopes to reinvent those times for residents of all ages with The Way We Were: Park Avenue in the s & s. Its an exhibit cre ators hope will bring back good memories for those who lived it and create new ways to enjoy his tory for those who did not. We want it to be a heartwarm ing nostalgic walk down the Ave nue, Museum Executive Director It should be just as fun for peo ple who werent here so they can experience history in a fun way, she said. Mementos The historical exhibit of Park Av enue in the s and s features signs from old-time restaurants such as Hatties, Cottrells and La Maison de Crepes that used to create big buzz on Park Avenue. Theres documentary photogra phy from Peter Schreyer, executive director of Creald School of Art as well as a Winter Park Chamber of Commerce video from the s and a historical timeline of Winter Park from the Native American time period to the present. It is as comprehensive as we have room for, Winter Park Historical Association President Linda Kulmann said. It gives an overview of the major events. Theres also a s living room, where the opening songs from shows of the time period, put to gether by students at Valencia College, will be playing from the wooden television, and books and magazines of the time will be showcased and available for resi dents to browse. It was a monumental task, curator and exhibition designer Camilo Velasquez said. Mannequins will be dressed in clothing of the time, replicas of kiosks that were used as informa tion bulletins will be showcasing modern Park Avenue shops, and paintings from Jeannette Genius McKean will be hung to pay trib ute to her for opening the Morse Museum of American Art, home to the worlds largest collection of Louis Comfort Tiffany glass. Its also about the movers and shakers, Velasquez said. Its about the people who created the change, the business people, so to speak. People like Eve Proctor, Hattie Wolfe, Bob Miller and Rob ert Langford. They have marked the personality of the area. Ageless The exhibition team is also going above and beyond to keep chil dren just as entertained as their parents and grandparents. They have a childrens section featuring toys of the era such as the Slinky, Etch A Sketch and Rubiks Cube. We are looking forward to the kids getting rich in the s and s and kind of submerging them in that culture, Kulmann said. They will also launch a new childrens show called s Show Winter Park with main charac ters Sunny Day and Delta Dawn, which will debut on Saturday, Nov. 5, at 10 a.m. and play at 10 a.m. every Wednesday thereafter. It is a great way to introduce history to kids a great way to make it come alive and make it have relevance, Kulmann said.

Thursday, Oct. 13 2011 Page 12 Winter Park / Maitland Observer Small is beautiful again, or at least it is becoming neces sary. Thrift is reviving again, like it or not. The deepening global recession and the mushroom ing layoffs, bankruptcies and foreclosures have generated a rising wave of austerity and frugality. A recent government report revealed that Americans had steadily reduced their spending since the onset of the Great Recession. Such data suggest a dramatic shift in con sumer behavior. Business groups are worried that the austerity phenomenon may very well tip the nation into a depression. As the edi tors of Business Week ask, Will frugality become the new normal among Americans, as some people fear? Probably not. Historically, such periods of frugality dont last very long. Once the economy recovers, most people revert to traditional patterns of carefree consumption. The spendthrift pattern of the last decade will probably rebound. An old cycle is at work here. Throughout American history, the tension between ac cumulating goods and cultivating goodness has shaped our collective character. Americans over the years have assumed that nothing suc ceeds like excess, only to experience a calami tous fall from grace. Two former presidents acknowledged this cyclical pattern when John Adams asked Thomas Jefferson in 1819, Will you tell me how to prevent luxury from be coming effeminacy, intoxication, extravagance, vice and folly? Adams question shimmers with relevance. Even before the housing bubble burst in 2007, there were growing indications that consum ers were living on borrowed time. The elixir of easy money heedless borrowing by homeowners and investment bankers was a losing prescription long before 2008. Life in the fast lane had become a dead end for many people. It is in this context that the forced frugal ity of recent years may harbor a silver lining. Some people have decided that simpler, more sustainable modes of living are preferable to their old habits of conspicuous consumption. A simpler life may not appeal to the major ity, but it has always been one of the nations most renewable civic resources. In times of economic distress, global war or energy crisis, people have tapped the rich reservoir of plain living and high thinking in the American expe rience. The resilient ideal of simpler living has repeatedly served the moral health of the na tion and the spiritual health of its practitioners. Why? Simpler living can often mean more abundant living. The balm of simplicity soothes frazzled lives. Pressures are reduced and the frenetic pace of life is slowed. Simpler living also creates a greater sense of self-reliance and more opportunities for activi ties of intrinsic worth: family, faith, civic and social service, self-culture. To have all we want is said to be rich. But to be able to do without all that we desire is to enjoy true freedom. A simpler life is anything but simple, how to maintain. Yet simple living, for all its complexities good life. It can be more than an anachronism, fad or eccentricity. Living a simpler life does not mean living a destitute life. It entails a daily ordering of pri orities so as to distinguish between the neces the beautiful and vulgar. Knowing the difference between personal trappings and personal traps is the key to mastering the art of simpler living. Simplicity is essentially a state of mind rath er than a particular standard of living. Money or possessions or activities dont corrupt our serenity, but the love of money, the craving of possessions and the prison of activities do. Perhaps the painful recession will provoke at least some of us to reassess our priorities. Life is fundamentally a series of choices. Although often buffeted by forces beyond our control, most of us have this one choice: We can keep yearning for more, or we can resolve to be content with less. Choose well. David E. Shi, a fellow at the Winter Park Institute, is president emeritus of Furman University and the author of The Simple Life: Plain Living and High Thinking in American Culture. He will be speak ing at a free event at the Winter Park Institute at Rollins College on Tuesday, Oct. 18, at 7 p.m. More information is at www.rollins.edu/wpi Opinion/ Editorial Occupying shaky ground The silver lining in forced frugality Five weeks ago, as a group of sign-car rying 20-somethings walked toward the steps of the New York Stock Exchange, CNN.com was running a story about the Kim Kardashian wedding, Fox News was talking about how the presidents jobs plan would never work before it had even been presented and the New York Times was running a story about a political uprising on the other side of the globe. The Occupy Wall Street movement weeks that followed, for all that Americas largest media outlets were showing us, it didnt exist. In an absurd twist, we needed Great Britains Daily Telegraph, the BBC and Qatars Al Jazeera to tell us what was hap pening in the most media-saturated city in the world. But then, possibly out of a sense of journalistic embarrassment, the major media outlets began slowly trickling stories across televisions and monitors and news pages about the growing protest on Wall Street against the greed and corrup tion of government and the wealthy elite in general and perpetrators of broad-scale Strangely, the focus of the stories seemed to be more on mockery than information about why the protestors were place. headlines were of screaming protestors being arrested, with no mention of what they were protesting. Its as if the unspo ken message was these misguided young people were behaving badly, so they were arrested for it. End of story. Or was it? Even absent major media the fuse on the protests, the protests kept growing anyway. Soon the Occupy name geles, Portland, Chicago and now Orlando. The news stories and commentary began to get more focused on the message. Finally, the protest had a spotlight. Then the vitriol came. In one segment, conservative commentator and author Ann Coulter alternately referred to the move ment as both laughably disorganized and Nazi-esque. From that side of the political aisle, the stance was clear: Protesting is only American if it agrees with our opinion. See Sean Hannitys backing of the Tea Party protests, and subsequent derision of Occupy Wall Street, for reference. But that lopsided spin carries with it an inherent danger: If conservative commen tators cant convincingly draw a line that as left-wing enemies of America, they run the risk of alienating independents and conservatives who agree with some of the points the protestors have made. Outrage against income and wealth disparity crosses well beyond the major political party divide. As the banners car ried by the protestors plainly state: We are the 99 percent. That includes both liberals and conservatives. Thats a lot of potential protestors. That corporations have attained all the government already precludes the power wielding protestors draw from. The only strength they truly possess is in numbers, and they need those numbers to grow by reaching out to the most mainstream of Americans, and then broadening that appeal to increasingly politically diverse sides of the aisle. The biggest danger to the Occupy movement is if the only people who show up continue to be largely left-leaning, iron ically bearded, quasi-intellectual hipsters that its easy to write off as a freak show rather than a genuine political uprising. Protests live and die by whether the av erage American sees protestors as an us rather than a them. Orlando represents one of the most diverse melting pots in the country, both ethnically and politically. What better litmus test for the viability of a political movement? This weekend, the Occupy Orlando protest in front of the Orlando Regional Chamber of Commerce will see if it can make populist outrage popular with the masses, rather than merely a party for the hippest of the echo boomer generation.

Thursday, Oct. 13 2011 Page 13 Winter Park / Maitland Observer If youve been paying attention to the news headlines over the past couple of years, you have no doubt been inundated with seemingly endless talk of health care reform. The topic has been the subject of heated debate on Capitol Hill and around information to process, and so many make sense of it all. Two things are very clear. First, the sweeping changes brought on over the next four to eight years by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 and its amendments will affect each of us to some degree. Second, those who do not take proper measures to prepare for the pected and undesirable tax position. Though a thorough discussion of the act would require volumes of analysis and explanation, there are a few key points that exemplify the types of changes that are at hand. tax rate will increase by 0.9 percent for high-wage earners. Additionally, a new 3.8 percent tax on investment income, including the distribution of annuities, for those earning more than $200,000 (indi vidual)/$250,000 (married couple) will be imposed. Combined, the increased taxes are expected to offset the cost of health care reform measures. be imposed on all individuals lacking government approved health care cover age. Those without proper coverage will be subject to a tax that is the greater of $95 or 1 percent of the individuals adjusted gross income. In 2015, the tax increases to the greater of $325 or 2 percent of AGI, and in 2016 it increases to 2.5 percent or $695 per person. Families will be subject to up to three times the penalty amount for individuals, or $2,085. In short, approved coverage is mandatory, and the penalty for with an average of 50 or more full-time equivalent employees could be subject to penalties of up to $2,000 per employee for failing to offer health coverage that meets minimum essential coverage requirements. There are also potential penalties for offering coverage that is deemed unaf fordable to an employee who receives a tax credit and purchases their insurance through the exchange. The formulas for determining non-compliance and cal culating penalties are complex, which emphasizes the need to actively engage in planning strategies well in advance. The health care reform measures that will be placed into action over the next several years will be unfamiliar to most. change from that which we have been sub ject to in the past. If there is one thing to take away from this column, it is that busi nesses and individuals should be proactive in incorporating the new measures into tax planning activities so as to avoid any unwelcome surprises. It would be prudent to meet with your health care consultant, your particular situation.

Visit www.mpc-wm.com Louis Roney Whats our plan for Iran? Patriotic Americans will understand that we must very soon address Irans grow ing nuclear weapon capabilities in order that the U.S. face the future with realistic Can we live in a world with an Iran that has parity with us in modern nuclear destructive ability and considers itself our mortal enemy? If Eisenhower were in the White House instead of the non-entity who has now reduced our military to an occasional con cern, I dont think we would be worrying about Iran for long. Israel, which earlier destroyed an Iraqi nuclear facility, would probably give us a hand in any way possible to bolster our intelligence and our placing of weaponry for handling Iran. (Operation Babylon was a surprise Israeli air strike carried out in June 1981 that destroyed a nuclear reac tor under construction 10.5 miles south east of Baghdad.) If Iran were aware of the fact that the U.S. is on the verge of making a move, perhaps it would say farewell to its dreams of opposing us in the big leagues of modern nuclear politics. The appalling Mr. Obama has con signed a piteous percent of our gross national product to defense, and it makes me wonder more and more if he did not take the presidency with the idea of con verting us into a scared third-rate nation. Where are the eagles and the trum pets? wrote T.S. Eliot. Buried beneath some snow-deep Alps, he concluded. The great poet may well have been writing about the power and glory of our country, buried in the non-productive skittishness of our leader. One thing you learn as a boy in the schoolyard: When you know someone is as you can. Retaliation in warfare must be swift and terrible. When the Japanese mounted their cowardly attack on Pearl Harbor, killing thousands of sleeping American military men on Sunday, Dec. 7, 1941, the next morning I caught the subway into Boston and joined a throng of young men volunteering in our Navy. We had but one thought in mind: to kill Japanese, and make them regret the idea that they could attack the U.S. without courting their own massive destruction. The condition of Tokyo in 1945 said all there was to say about retaliation American style. Oh, for Harry Truman or Dwight Eisenhower today! Can you imagine what would happen if New York City were bombed in a nuke attack? Panic, pure panic! Would Iran dare to bomb New York? Can we afford to proceed any longer without the answer? The only deterrent is Irans knowledge that an attack on New York would bring swift and total annihilation of Iran by U.S. military might. To preserve peace one must be strong. Weakness invites attack, for the attacker is granted time and sees less risk. Most people are either bold and some what dangerous or weak and spineless. The bold may have their cards on the table, and one can negotiate with them as much as one can with anyone. I believe that much of the world sees Obama as an indecisive man with a smile on his face and one hand behind his back. In that hand he carries a dagger, which one suspects he may employ in whatever way will serve his own politics best. HarvardDistinguished Prof, Em.UCF 2004 Fla.

Thursday, Oct. 13, 2011 Page 10 Winter Park / Maitland Observer Lifestyles The s and s were periods of monumental change and upheav al in American history. It was the era of the civil rights movement, the Vietnam War, the assassination of President Kenne dy, the emergence of psychedelic hippies, daring fashions and mutime. But despite the events that characterized a turbulent time, most baby boomers reminisce on the era with great nostalgia. For residents of Winter Park, memories of places such as the Beef and Bottle, where customers knew the staff just as well as the menu, and the iconic Langford Hotel, where President Reagan and his wife celebrated their 40th anniversary, are unforgettable. But not everyone can think back to a time when telephones were not portable and there were other things to do during the day that did not include searching the Internet for YouTube videos or socializing with friends via Facebook. On Wednesday, Oct. 19, the Winter Park Historical Museum hopes to reinvent those times for residents of all ages with The Way We Were: Park Avenue in the s & s. Its an exhibit cre ators hope will bring back good memories for those who lived it and create new ways to enjoy his tory for those who did not. We want it to be a heartwarm ing nostalgic walk down the Ave nue, Museum Executive Director It should be just as fun for peo ple who werent here so they can experience history in a fun way, she said.MementosThe historical exhibit of Park Av enue in the s and s features signs from old-time restaurants such as Hatties, Cottrells and La Maison de Crepes that used to create big buzz on Park Avenue. Theres documentary photography from Peter Schreyer, executive director of Creald School of Art as well as a Winter Park Chamber of Commerce video from the s and a historical timeline of Winter Park from the Native American time period to the present. It is as comprehensive as we have room for, Winter Park Historical Association President Linda Kulmann said. It gives an overview of the major events. Theres also a s living room, where the opening songs from shows of the time period, put to gether by students at Valencia College, will be playing from the wooden television, and books and magazines of the time will be showcased and available for resi dents to browse. It was a monumental task, curator and exhibition designer Camilo Velasquez said. Mannequins will be dressed in clothing of the time, replicas of kiosks that were used as informa tion bulletins will be showcasing modern Park Avenue shops, and paintings from Jeannette Genius McKean will be hung to pay trib ute to her for opening the Morse Museum of American Art, home to the worlds largest collection of Louis Comfort Tiffany glass. Its also about the movers and shakers, Velasquez said. Its about the people who created the change, the business people, so to speak. People like Eve Proctor, Hattie Wolfe, Bob Miller and Rob ert Langford. They have marked the personality of the area.AgelessThe exhibition team is also going above and beyond to keep chil dren just as entertained as their parents and grandparents. They have a childrens section featuring toys of the era such as the Slinky, Etch A Sketch and Rubiks Cube. We are looking forward to the kids getting rich in the s and s and kind of submerging them in that culture, Kulmann said. They will also launch a new childrens show called s Show Winter Park with main characters Sunny Day and Delta Dawn, which will debut on Saturday, Nov. 5, at 10 a.m. and play at 10 a.m. every Wednesday thereafter. It is a great way to introduce history to kids a great way to make it come alive and make it have relevance, Kulmann said.

Thursday, Oct. 13, 2011 Page 12 Winter Park / Maitland Observer Small is beautiful again, or at least it is becoming necessary. Thrift is reviving again, like it or not. The deepening global recession and the mushrooming layoffs, bankruptcies and foreclosures have generated a rising wave of austerity and frugality. A recent government report revealed that Americans had steadily reduced their spending since the onset of the Great Recession. Such data suggest a dramatic shift in con sumer behavior. Business groups are worried that the austerity phenomenon may very well tip the nation into a depression. As the edi tors of Business Week ask, Will frugality become the new normal among Americans, as some people fear? Probably not. Historically, such periods of frugality dont last very long. Once the economy recovers, most people revert to traditional patterns of carefree consumption. The spendthrift pattern of the last decade will probably rebound. An old cycle is at work here. Throughout American history, the tension between accumulating goods and cultivating goodness has shaped our collective character. Americans over the years have assumed that nothing succeeds like excess, only to experience a calami tous fall from grace. Two former presidents acknowledged this cyclical pattern when John Adams asked Thomas Jefferson in 1819, Will you tell me how to prevent luxury from be coming effeminacy, intoxication, extravagance, vice and folly? Adams question shimmers with relevance. Even before the housing bubble burst in 2007, there were growing indications that consum ers were living on borrowed time. The elixir of easy money heedless borrowing by homeowners and investment bankers was a losing prescription long before 2008. Life in the fast lane had become a dead end for many people. It is in this context that the forced frugal ity of recent years may harbor a silver lining. Some people have decided that simpler, more sustainable modes of living are preferable to their old habits of conspicuous consumption. A simpler life may not appeal to the major ity, but it has always been one of the nations most renewable civic resources. In times of economic distress, global war or energy crisis, people have tapped the rich reservoir of plain living and high thinking in the American expe rience. The resilient ideal of simpler living has repeatedly served the moral health of the na tion and the spiritual health of its practitioners. Why? Simpler living can often mean more abundant living. The balm of simplicity soothes frazzled lives. Pressures are reduced and the frenetic pace of life is slowed. Simpler living also creates a greater sense of self-reliance and more opportunities for activities of intrinsic worth: family, faith, civic and social service, self-culture. To have all we want is said to be rich. But to be able to do without all that we desire is to enjoy true freedom. A simpler life is anything but simple, howto maintain. Yet simple living, for all its complexities good life. It can be more than an anachronism, fad or eccentricity. Living a simpler life does not mean living a destitute life. It entails a daily ordering of pri orities so as to distinguish between the necesthe beautiful and vulgar. Knowing the difference between personal trappings and personal traps is the key to mastering the art of simpler living. Simplicity is essentially a state of mind rath er than a particular standard of living. Money or possessions or activities dont corrupt our serenity, but the love of money, the craving of possessions and the prison of activities do. Perhaps the painful recession will provoke at least some of us to reassess our priorities. Life is fundamentally a series of choices. Although often buffeted by forces beyond our control, most of us have this one choice: We can keep yearning for more, or we can resolve to be content with less. Choose well. David E. Shi, a fellow at the Winter Park Institute, is president emeritus of Furman University and the author of The Simple Life: Plain Living and High Thinking in American Culture. He will be speaking at a free event at the Winter Park Institute at Rollins College on Tuesday, Oct. 18, at 7 p.m. More information is at www.rollins.edu/wpi Opinion/ Editorial Occupying shaky ground The silver lining in forced frugality Five weeks ago, as a group of sign-car rying 20-somethings walked toward the steps of the New York Stock Exchange, CNN.com was running a story about the Kim Kardashian wedding, Fox News was talking about how the presidents jobs plan would never work before it had even been presented and the New York Times was running a story about a political uprising on the other side of the globe. The Occupy Wall Street movement weeks that followed, for all that Americas largest media outlets were showing us, it didnt exist. In an absurd twist, we needed Great Britains Daily Telegraph, the BBC and Qatars Al Jazeera to tell us what was hap pening in the most media-saturated city in the world. But then, possibly out of a sense of journalistic embarrassment, the major media outlets began slowly trickling stories across televisions and monitors and news pages about the growing protest on Wall Street against the greed and corrup tion of government and the wealthy elite in general and perpetrators of broad-scale Strangely, the focus of the stories seemed to be more on mockery than information about why the protestors were place. headlines were of screaming protestors being arrested, with no mention of what they were protesting. Its as if the unspo ken message was these misguided young people were behaving badly, so they were arrested for it. End of story. Or was it? Even absent major media the fuse on the protests, the protests kept growing anyway. Soon the Occupy name geles, Portland, Chicago and now Orlando. The news stories and commentary began to get more focused on the message. Finally, the protest had a spotlight. Then the vitriol came. In one segment, conservative commentator and author Ann Coulter alternately referred to the move ment as both laughably disorganized and Nazi-esque. From that side of the political aisle, the stance was clear: Protesting is only American if it agrees with our opinion. See Sean Hannitys backing of the Tea Party protests, and subsequent derision of Occupy Wall Street, for reference. But that lopsided spin carries with it an inherent danger: If conservative commentators cant convincingly draw a line that as left-wing enemies of America, they run the risk of alienating independents and conservatives who agree with some of the points the protestors have made. Outrage against income and wealth disparity crosses well beyond the major political party divide. As the banners car ried by the protestors plainly state: We are the 99 percent. That includes both liberals and conservatives. Thats a lot of potential protestors. That corporations have attained all the government already precludes the power wielding protestors draw from. The only strength they truly possess is in numbers, and they need those numbers to grow by reaching out to the most mainstream of Americans, and then broadening that appeal to increasingly politically diverse sides of the aisle. The biggest danger to the Occupy movement is if the only people who show up continue to be largely left-leaning, iron ically bearded, quasi-intellectual hipsters that its easy to write off as a freak show rather than a genuine political uprising. Protests live and die by whether the av erage American sees protestors as an us rather than a them. Orlando represents one of the most diverse melting pots in the country, both ethnically and politically. What better litmus test for the viability of a political movement? This weekend, the Occupy Orlando protest in front of the Orlando Regional Chamber of Commerce will see if it can make populist outrage popular with the masses, rather than merely a party for the hippest of the echo boomer generation.

Thursday, Oct. 13, 2011 Page 13 Winter Park / Maitland Observer If youve been paying attention to the news headlines over the past couple of years, you have no doubt been inundated with seemingly endless talk of health care reform. The topic has been the subject of heated debate on Capitol Hill and around information to process, and so many make sense of it all. Two things are very clear. First, the sweeping changes brought on over the next four to eight years by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 and its amendments will affect each of us to some degree. Second, those who do not take proper measures to prepare for the pected and undesirable tax position. Though a thorough discussion of the act would require volumes of analysis and explanation, there are a few key points that exemplify the types of changes that are at hand. tax rate will increase by 0.9 percent for high-wage earners. Additionally, a new 3.8 percent tax on investment income, including the distribution of annuities, for those earning more than $200,000 (individual)/$250,000 (married couple) will be imposed. Combined, the increased taxes are expected to offset the cost of health care reform measures. be imposed on all individuals lacking government approved health care cover age. Those without proper coverage will be subject to a tax that is the greater of $95 or 1 percent of the individuals adjusted gross income. In 2015, the tax increases to the greater of $325 or 2 percent of AGI, and in 2016 it increases to 2.5 percent or $695 per person. Families will be subject to up to three times the penalty amount for individuals, or $2,085. In short, approved coverage is mandatory, and the penalty for with an average of 50 or more full-time equivalent employees could be subject to penalties of up to $2,000 per employee for failing to offer health coverage that meets minimum essential coverage requirements. There are also potential penalties for offering coverage that is deemed unaffordable to an employee who receives a tax credit and purchases their insurance through the exchange. The formulas for determining non-compliance and cal culating penalties are complex, which emphasizes the need to actively engage in planning strategies well in advance. The health care reform measures that will be placed into action over the next several years will be unfamiliar to most. change from that which we have been sub ject to in the past. If there is one thing to take away from this column, it is that busi nesses and individuals should be proactive in incorporating the new measures into tax planning activities so as to avoid any unwelcome surprises. It would be prudent to meet with your health care consultant, your particular situation.

Visit www.mpc-wm.com Louis Roney Whats our plan for Iran? Patriotic Americans will understand that we must very soon address Irans grow ing nuclear weapon capabilities in order that the U.S. face the future with realistic Can we live in a world with an Iran that has parity with us in modern nuclear destructive ability and considers itself our mortal enemy? If Eisenhower were in the White House instead of the non-entity who has now reduced our military to an occasional con cern, I dont think we would be worrying about Iran for long. Israel, which earlier destroyed an Iraqi nuclear facility, would probably give us a hand in any way possible to bolster our intelligence and our placing of weaponry for handling Iran. (Operation Babylon was a surprise Israeli air strike carried out in June 1981 that destroyed a nuclear reac tor under construction 10.5 miles southeast of Baghdad.) If Iran were aware of the fact that the U.S. is on the verge of making a move, perhaps it would say farewell to its dreams of opposing us in the big leagues of modern nuclear politics. The appalling Mr. Obama has consigned a piteous percent of our gross national product to defense, and it makes me wonder more and more if he did not take the presidency with the idea of con verting us into a scared third-rate nation. Where are the eagles and the trum pets? wrote T.S. Eliot. Buried beneath some snow-deep Alps, he concluded. The great poet may well have been writing about the power and glory of our country, buried in the non-productive skittishness of our leader. One thing you learn as a boy in the schoolyard: When you know someone is as you can. Retaliation in warfare must be swift and terrible. When the Japanese mounted their cowardly attack on Pearl Harbor, killing thousands of sleeping American military men on Sunday, Dec. 7, 1941, the next morning I caught the subway into Boston and joined a throng of young men volunteering in our Navy. We had but one thought in mind: to kill Japanese, and make them regret the idea that they could attack the U.S. without courting their own massive destruction. The condition of Tokyo in 1945 said all there was to say about retaliation American style. Oh, for Harry Truman or Dwight Eisenhower today! Can you imagine what would happen if New York City were bombed in a nuke attack? Panic, pure panic! Would Iran dare to bomb New York? Can we afford to proceed any longer without the answer? The only deterrent is Irans knowledge that an attack on New York would bring swift and total annihilation of Iran by U.S. military might. To preserve peace one must be strong. Weakness invites attack, for the attacker is granted time and sees less risk. Most people are either bold and somewhat dangerous or weak and spineless. The bold may have their cards on the table, and one can negotiate with them as much as one can with anyone. I believe that much of the world sees Obama as an indecisive man with a smile on his face and one hand behind his back. In that hand he carries a dagger, which one suspects he may employ in whatever way will serve his own politics best. HarvardDistinguished Prof, Em.UCF 2004 Fla.

Taking the right steps at the right time can prevent many foreclosures. The public is invited to attend a free foreclosure-prevention workshop presented by the Orlando Regional Realtor Association and learn about the programs, resources and services available to help navigate the current mortgage crisis. ORRA will be holding its free foreclosure-prevention workshop for homeowners on Tuesday, Oct. 18, from 6 p.m.-8:30 p.m. in the Whispering Oak Elementary School cafeteria in Winter Garden. Speakers will include a representative from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, a mortgage specialist and a panel of attor neys specializing in foreclosures and short sales. Immediately following the program, both housing counselors and real estate attorneys will be available for individual homeowner consultations. Spanishspeaking volunteers will be on hand for language assistance. The foreclosure-prevention workshop is part of a series produced by ORRA, which was awarded a $5,000 grant from the National Association of Realtors in support of the program. ORRA is matching the grant with its own funds, and the Central Florida Real Estate Council is contributing the time of its attor ney members for both the panel and one-on-one consultations.
