LETTERSTOTHEEDITOR MORE POWER TO YOU Good job on the Photo Voltaic home article (“A Brighter Future,” Apr. 29). People should know these grid-connected systems are sprouting up everywhere. Good work getting the word out. But there is a problem with KWHRs or Kilo (1000) Watt (volts times amps) Hr. (hour). Most who pay electric bills, when asked something about KWHRs, will give you a kind of goofy eyed look and say I’m clueless as to what a KWHR is. This would be like not knowing what a gallon is, and paying by the gallon for gas. If a PV system in this price range made 10 KWHRs per day, it would be doing good. But the article stated that the PV system will make 1400 Kilowatts of power. This would be the output of a full-sized power plant of 1.4 million watts. Wouldn’t that be nice. That was a big typo, dudes. I would guess that system would make about 3,500 KWHR per year or so at the most. -Franklin Russell, via email The Editor responds: Nice catch, though we are working on a 1,400 Kilowatt system for our upcoming world domination project, but the less said about that the better.
ariously express the central, collective emotions of victory, justice and struggle” left me wondering exactly what “certitude” Barukh Shalev was speaking of. If Ultimate Fighting is a masculine response to an emasculated condition then why not redirect this wealth of energy to effect meaningful change in this world in which you find yourself? The “heroes” you mention are not “heroes” because they can break bones and sweat. I think it’s time for a change in the way we define masculinity and heroism and start to become part of a solution for the societal angst of which you speak. I challenge you to this much more difficult bout. -Paula Brock, Kihei Barukh Shalev responds: The certitude I wrote of is competition and struggle, elements human beings have been identifying with since ancient times. Unapologetic masculinity and power has been, since the 1960’s, seen as something obscene and politically incorrect. Social elites tend to take a view of biology as something that can be controlled, harnessed for as you say “meaningful change.” You are seeking to implement a political ideology through biology. Marx had the same idea, this concept of controlling human strength and potential to create utopia.
MOVIE GUY Wow, did Cole Smithey see the same movie that I did? Everybody I know really enjoyed Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (“Desolation Row,” May 27). It was clever, deep and entertaining. Maybe his dislike of the characters got in the way of his enjoying the film. I thought it was great. -Bill Schoenbart, Santa Cruz, CA/Pahoa, HI

TV with a Brain

Akaku passes the hat For the first time in its history, the tiny, overcrowded, public access Akaku Maui Community Television is passing the hat. This month, Akaku will send out fundraising letters to local companies asking for donations ranging from $1,000 to $10,000. Development Director Susie Bryne-Wickey said the goal of the fundraiser is to raise an additional $100,000 to support 10 different areas that need funding, including a radio station Akaku plans to be operating this time next year. “We only get a limited amount of funding from the cable company,” said media access technician Alli Waters of the tiny Kahului-based studio created by Oceanic Time Warner Cable as part of state broadcast requirements. “And we haven’t actively been asking for funds, so we’ve really outgrown this place.” Though the cable company is required to provide three percent of its gross revenue each year to Akaku—which adds up to 70 percent of the public access station’s budget—it still needs county grants and training fee revenues. Last year, 567 people visited the nonprofit Akaku to learn some element of television production. The five-channel (5256) public access television network—created to ensure that members of the community weren’t shut out from accessing media offers three types of production certification, access to equipment after certification and free airtime for Hawaii residents who want to express themselves with the rest of the community. “Our name means vision and our mission is to empower the community’s voice through access to media,” said Waters. “We have about 200 certified producers and more and more people are realizing we are a good tool to get the word out.” Like Kevin Baker. He earned his television certification three years ago, and has since produced several television shows,
Akaku staffer Maile Ladera winning Akaku’s Best Producer award in 2003. “I always wanted to do my own show,” he said. “But I thought you had to have money, or know someone, or go to school to do it. Not to mention, before you even got started, you’d have to go buy $30,000 worth of equipment. But with Akaku, I can do it all here.” Baker’s pride and joy is his comedy show Dats’ Nuts which airs on Akaku’s Calabash Channel 52. The series is similar to The Tom Green Show or the popular MTV show Jackass, but with an island twist. One episode documented Baker and his friends skateboarding inside Haleakala Crater while wearing Santa Claus suits. “The best thing about Akaku is that you don’t have to sell out,” he said. ”You can put on what you want.” Will Moore, Akaku programmer and educator, said that unlike other stations, Akaku centers on free speech and airs anyone’s production, regardless of content, message or quality. Nancy Lee Potter, who has been producing television for less than a year, creates her own live political talk show in Akaku’s studio almost every week. Her show, Shine the Light on Maui, airs on Visions Channel 53 and allows viewers to call in and discuss their
political opinions live. “It’s not as much about my voice as it is about the community’s,” Potter said. “The more they know and see their candidates, the better officials they can elect.” Potter spends a lot of free time at the Kahului station. She said there is definitely a demand for new funding. “There is a concerted effort to do good here and it would be really nice if they had more equipment and were able to receive more funding.” Despite limited funding, Akaku is still making waves in the world of public access television. CEO Sean McLaughlin said the station is recognized nationally as being one of the most innovative. “The way Maui is, we tend to be fearlessly innovative and we’ve consistently adopted new technologies appropriate to our work,” McLaughlin said. “For example, in Maui County we have a lot of people who don’t have cable, so we figured ‘hey, since the mandate is to serve the entire community, not just cable subscribers, we better find a way to get the programs to them,’ and so we started to stream video on the internet.” That was in 1997. Today, Akaku is showing all types of programs dealing with local politics, ultimate fighting, UFOs and a host of other topics in real time with Experimental TV Channel 54. With XTV, viewers can log on to the internet and schedule programs they want to see, when they want to see them. “We are the only public access center in the country bold enough to do this,” said Pete Sullivan, another programmer. “The few times the system crashes, you get phone calls. The important thing is that XTV is what the community wants to see. And it’s refreshing that what’s being programmed isn’t all surfing or water sports.” MTW

I found myself in the Minit Stop over at the corner of Alameha and Dairy in Kahului the other night. I was with a buddy of mine, and we were buying our two female friends some drinks—two 40s of King Cobra and Mickey’s Ice, to be exact. We were doing so because a few minutes earlier they had utterly failed to complete the transaction. One of them—the one not paying, incidentally—had left her drivers’ license at home and the clerk refused the sale because she couldn’t properly card them both. If gas station and convenience mart clerks seem a little more anal about carding people these days, it’s because your Maui County Department of Liquor Control’s been dropping the hammer on them in recent months. Four of the five items on the June 3 Liquor Control Adjudication Board meeting agenda dealt with serving minors, and two of those were on small convenience stores. But the trend goes back a year, with fines slapped on over a dozen small grocery stores and gas stations. As evidenced by the Dairy Road Minit Stop, even the threat of stings can put the fear of God in store clerks. And if the store is part of a larger chain—Minit Stop, Tesoro, etc.—the backlash against whatever hapless employee got caught in the sting can be harsh. During the Apr. 2, 2004 Adjudication Board hearing, Tesoro corporate officials appeared for what was their Kihei operation’s third violation of selling booze to a minor. The penalty was automatic—a suspended license for up to 30 days. But company officials managed to get that cut back to just 10 days by impressing the Board with their response to their latest violation. Within hours of the sting, company officials had fired the “customer service associate,” even though she’d worked at that location loyally for four years. Six days later, they fired the store manager as well. “We have zero tolerance,” an attorney for Tesoro told the Board. When asked why they fired such a loyal clerk so quickly, a company official said simply, “we thought she was a good employee.” MTW

MONDAY, MAY 31 It’s Memorial Day, which this country celebrates, like most holidays, with lots of drinking and barbecuing and drinking and going to the beach to drink and barbecue. Yup, just like any other holiday, though you do get to see a lot of Tom Brokaw and Tom Hanks competing to see who can kiss the most Greatest Generation ass. Meanwhile, U.S. forces are fighting and dying in Afghanistan, Iraq and who knows where else because our government won’t say because it no longer trusts us. If so many hundreds of people weren’t dying each month, fearless leader George W. Bush’s little wars in the desert would be hilarious. Especially Iraq, where only someone like Bush could, through stupidity or corruption or perhaps a combination of both, make toppling one of the most evil men of the last 50 years look like fascist imperialism. Even funnier are the increasing numbers of current and former defense officials and intellectuals—like former National Security Agency boss William Odom and retired four-star Marine Corps General Anthony Zinni—lining up with their recommendations to get the hell out of Iraq as fast as humanly possible. Funniest of all is that a year ago—long before photos and Article 15 reports came out that American GI boys and girls were torturing Iraqi prisoners and criminals as part of some damn-fool plan to gather intelligence on terrorism—Bush and his supposedly brilliant political crew actually thought that they could run for reelection on Iraq.
TUESDAY, JUN. 1 Ka’anapali Development Corp. vice president A. James Wriston, III tells a gathering of about 30 Lahaina locals that his company will be sparing the historic old
Pioneer Mill smokestack when it demolishes the rest of the property sometime later this year. “The stack will stay,” he said. Or will it? Wriston also said “We’ve made no promises or commitments on the stack.” Though Wriston said the company would be willing to fork over $280,000 to refurbish the stack’s structure— make it so it won’t, you know, fall down and kill people—he also said the whole plan was contingent on finding a proper caretaker agency. Perhaps the Lahaina Restoration Foundation, which has done such wonders with the old Carthaginian II brig replica? In fact, what about preserving the whole mill, or at least rebuilding part of it into a kind of Pioneer Mill museum? “Whether it’s old or ancient… we’d like to see the preservation of that site,” LRF executive director Keoki Freeland said at the meeting. Ever the politician, Freeland’s comments can be interpreted as meaning the LRF would be content if the entire Mill was kept around, or just the smokestack. In any case, Wriston said that once his company got the necessary permits, it would take about six months to knock down the rusted, scary old mill hulk.
David Sereno, the Wailuku attorney who’s handling the Gregory family’s lawsuit against the county alleging Maui police officers were negligent when Pukalani resident Richard Gregory died while being arrested two years ago, has taken up the defense of Ernest Chavira, Jr. Back on the night of May 12, Chavira allegedly shot at two off-duty Maui police officers having a barbecue at Kalama Park in Kihei. Police fired back, but no one was hit in the exchange. “We expect, at the time of trial, we well be able to give a more complete account than what was revealed through newspaper articles,” Sereno told The Maui News, which was undoubtedly one of the sources of the articles he finds so questionable.

aired a special show chronicling a 2002 gig Evans played in some Key West lounge with the one and only William Shatner. And to this day, we don’t know what was more jarring—the sight of Evans belting out old Sinatra tunes or watching Captain Kirk stand on stage for 10 agonizing minutes and “sing” away whatever remained of his once-Shakespearean career. Those Priceline.com commercials were one thing, but that Key West gig… Though I do hear that Shatner’s got a good thing going on The Practice or one of them other legal drama shows the chicks love so much.
THURSDAY, JUN. 3 With great fanfare, The Maui News ran a small blurb in its “On the Campaign Trail” section announcing that Wailea’s own 34-year-old Brian Evans is officially running against 85term Democratic U.S. Senator Daniel Inouye. “What we need is a new, fresh face,” the “actor” who once appeared in such television legends as Full House and Beverly Hills, 90210 told the News in his first truly auspicious campaign soundbite. “[A]nd what we don’t need is to keep re-electing someone because they are memorabilia of a different time, and I don’t mean that disrespectfully in any way.” You know, Evans—a “pro choice, pro same-sex marriage, pro-marijuana” Democrat who bills himself as a “crooner”—actually announced his running for Senate months ago. But we at Maui Time choose the day of May 24, 2004 as the true genesis of what we hope is a long and bruising primary campaign. For on May 24, 2004, Akaku Channel 52
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again—society is coming apart at the seams. Just falling apart faster than a Bush-instigated invasion. The latest evidence: a new Cost of Government Commission report on how county workers keep losing small tools. You know—your hammers, screwdrivers, weedwhackers and such. Basically any tool that costs less than $700. “We do lose Weed Eaters and stuff, but usually police reports are done on that,” Deputy Parks Department Director John Buck told The Maui News. Then reporter Ilima Loomis wrote that Buck used the report to engage a little old-fashioned union bashing, saying pesky government employee unions prohibit the county from forcing employees to pay for things they lose. “The private sector’s a lot easier,” he told her. “Government’s a little different.”
SATURDAY, JUN. 5 A bunch of good-hearted folks who believe having U.S. troops occupy Iraq and shoot and torture people while getting shot and tortured themselves is a bad idea marched from Kamaole Beach Park III to Kamaole Beach Park I in Kihei this afternoon, completely missing the Belmont Stakes. And while guys like George W. pay absolutely no attention to popular uprisings and spontaneous assemblies of democracy—or the popular vote, for that matter—and could give a damn that a bunch of peaceniks on Maui walk up and down a beach yelling that his war is a crooked waste of men and treasure, it’s nice to see that endless sun and surf hasn’t made everyone on his rock soft.

NEWSOFTHEWEIRD POOR PORN Norwegian activists Tommy Hol Ellingsen and his girlfriend, seeking new funding sources for the environmental movement, created a Web site earlier this year that charges visitors about US $15 a month to view pornographic photos of the couple, with all profits to benefit environmental organizations (some were reportedly reluctant to accept their money). And in January, 33-year-old British woman “Vix,” who has multiple sclerosis, created a Web site featuring topless photos of herself and asking visitors to donate to the UK’s MS Resource Centre. But business is slow on both sites: As of April, Ellingsen reported only 200 visitor-months, and Vix had raised the equivalent of US $6,000 from about 100 of the site’s 125,000 visitors.
SUPER-RECIDIVISTS According to police in Atlanta in January, Nathaniel Lee Stanley, 20, just released from jail, walked out and immediately carjacked a woman in the jail’s parking lot (and was later returned to jail). And Ms. Kelly J. Handy, 37, who posted bond on burglary charges in Wheat Ridge, Colo., in March, picked up the wig and clothing that had been taken from her on her arrest, then went into a restroom, created a new look, and, according to police, immediately began stealing from residential mailboxes near the jail.

Today a small number of nation-states concluded a small meeting on a small island located near the lone, large geopolitical superpower that could have a massive financial impact on the international economic and ecological scene. The meeting will have implications for both the grassroots individual and global institutions. It was the annual Group of Eight (G8) summit, held this year in the U.S. at the exclusive Sea Island in Georgia. To many Americans and world citizens, there is an increasing awareness of the power these few nations hold over impoverished countries and alarm that the nations are doing little to alleviate poverty, protect the planet and promote peace. Since 1975, the Group has included the United States, Canada, Japan, Germany, France, the United Kingdom and Italy. Basically, their heads of states represent the world’s most powerful industrial countries in an annual summit to discuss current events and propose possible new directions for world policy. Each year, the site and state hosting rotates between the members. The last time the U.S. hosted the summit was in 1997 in Denver, when Russia got itself added as the Group’s eighth member. From June 8 to 10 of this year, Sea Island hosted the meeting. Historically, the island was promised to African American Georgians as economic reparations in a step toward reconciling the old brutal slavery system. But that didn’t happen. For this summit, the plush property provided a space for leaders to meet with little outside protest—no repeat of the big Seattle World Trade Organization protests from a few years ago. Instead, Sea Island served as an oasis for political leaders wanting quiet time to discuss plans deal with the quagmire otherwise known as the War on Terror and for encouraging the global economy. The location exemplifies the agenda and circumstances facing our world. While the summit is on an elite island, the rest of the county hosts 17 toxic waste sites and four Superfund sites, which are housed in pre-
dominantly poor, minority areas. For the last few years, the summits provided a refuge for the global elite in a world full of poverty, health problems and declining social conditions. In 1999, citizen movements came together to demand a new agenda for these states that would represent the political will of their citizens and the basic needs of the world’s population. The peaceful resistance highlighted the legacy of injustice perpetuated by the G8 members and hinted at possible reforms to protect and promote human rights in member states. It was to be nothing less than the foundation for a future foreign policy. At the Koln summit in 1999, a chain of humanity linked together around the summit site. It effectively altered the agenda for the leadership, which ultimately agreed to cancel the debts of the world’s poorest nations. But those promises haven’t been fulfilled. Because of that, people around the world are coordinating campaigns to lobby their leadership to live up to their own word and begin advocating on behalf of fundamental freedoms for people of the world—not merely for increased financial profits. In the spirit of Seattle WTO protests, citizens of the world believe that economic, ecological and social conditions should be at the heart of the G8 summits. After all, G8 policies have a broad economic impact and strong influence on impoverished states. The protestors believe the bilateral lending and export credit agencies of these governments actually do more harm than good. Specifically, they allow a small number of states to exercise tremendous political power over the daily lives of citizens in poorer countries receiving international loans. As a G8 member, we must ensure that those citizens directly affected by summit decisions have a voice at the table. We must also work for these meetings to be more open to the global public. The meetings should follow the principles of the G8 nations: democracy, equality, transparency and accountability. Before the next summit, we can begin providing local educational forums like film screenings, teachins and political clean-up projects that would assist citizens in getting to the table. MTW

MAUI TIME WEEKLY
MARCH 18, 2004
(Editor’s note: Former President Ronald Reagan died Saturday, June 5. The following story originally ran in the Feb. 1, 2002 issue of Orange County Weekly for Reagan’s 91st birthday. We’re reprinting it here to provide a balance to the current tributes.) As time goes by, it becomes clear that President Reagan was not only a great president but also one of our greatest, right up there with FDR, Lincoln and maybe George Washington. —U.S. Congressman and former Reagan speechwriter Dana Rohrabacher, 2001 Move over, Lincoln—we’d like to blast Ronald Reagan’s features onto Mount Rushmore. Erect a monument to him in every county. Engrave him on the $10 bill. Make a book extolling his character and achievements mandatory reading for school kids. He saved us from the Red Threat and from Jimmy Carter. He brought back morning in America. He is America. With a flick of his mighty pen, he turned ketchup into a vegetable. All hail Ronald Reagan! Jesus, can’t we just send him a “Best Wishes” card and leave it at that? Being president is a tough gig, even for one such as Reagan, who, according to aides, worked two to three hours per day, napped at cabinet and summit meetings, and spent more than a year of his eight years in office kicking back on his California ranch. Living in the White House entails difficult decisions, crises to be dealt with, and the dragging responsibility of being the most powerful person in the world. It ages one unnaturally. Reagan even took a bullet for us on the job. Thank the man for that. But when you talk about canonizing him, you can go suck a sprinkler head. Ronald Reagan may have been a likable guy—even in the White House, he answered his fan mail, sometimes enclosing a check
for that so much as I do the nation that so blindly followed him. And if we don’t now take the hard look that many of us were unwilling to take then, we’ll go sliding right down that phlegmy slope again.
MYTHMAKING Ronald Reagan was born 91 years ago this Tuesday in Tampico, Illinois, and as a teen growing up in Dixon, Illinois, he worked summers as a lifeguard, reputedly saving 77 swimmers from drowning. In college, he became a student leader and even led a protest against his school’s authoritarian president. After college, he landed work as a sportscaster in Davenport, Iowa, and though he’d never actually seen a major-league game, he invented vivid color to tart up the bare stats he read off a Morse code ticker tape. Many years later, he loved telling people about the time the wire went dead for six minutes and he kept going, improvising the action and passing it on as fact to his listeners. (Curiously, Walter Cronkite says that was his story, which he related to then-President Reagan one night and was surprised to later find Reagan telling the story as his own.) In Hollywood, his rugged looks, honed announcer’s voice and perfect memory landed him parts. Among his other roles, he made four films playing a secret agent named Brass Bancroft. For want of other superlatives, you could say his acting was dependable. In 1942, he went into the Army and spent the duration of the war at Hal Roach studios in Culver City making training films. Reagan became active in the Screen Actors Guild (SAG), eventually becoming its president. In 1952, rather than recuse himself because he was signed with the talent agency MCA, he led SAG in granting MCA a special waiver to go into TV production, greasing the way for it to become a media giant. Fortune smiles upon the just, and the following
conservative speaker that when he decided to run for office, he didn’t work his way up the political ranks but aimed right for governor of California. With substantial financial backing from MCA, two oilmen and a car dealer, his campaign presented a near-first in politics: instead of being managed by the party, Reagan hired outside consultants, who in turn employed psychologists at the Behavioral Sciences Corp. to package their candidate and craft position papers that would push the public’s buttons. All this for a man who touted himself as an aw-shucks, commonsense political outsider. Even before Reagan moved into the governor’s mansion, the same team of admen and psychologists went to work on a White House run. Against party wishes, he subsequently ran in presidential primaries against Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford. His record as governor is mixed. Despite his taxcutting cant as a candidate, he gave California the biggest tax increase in its history (a necessary one, granted, because exiting Governor Pat Brown, a Democrat, had left a deficit). Though he later claimed he hadn’t understood it, Reagan signed one of the nation’s most liberal abortion laws. On the other hand, when the legislature annually voted to repeal old laws that made felonies of sex acts most couples engage in, Reagan vetoed them each time, true to the Republican hypocrisy of wanting government out of the boardroom but not the bedroom. In actual accomplishment, his two terms in Sacramento were notable for their inertia; little action followed the fiery rhetoric Reagan employed on the stump. On that front, at least, he was a firebrand, with his tough-guy talk against hippies, war protesters and campus activists—“If it’s a bloodbath they want, so be it”—creating the “law and order” message his rival Richard Nixon rode to the White House. Reagan’s growing reputation for ignoring facts when they didn’t conform to his vision—such as his justification of our involvement in Vietnam by claiming it
The Real Reagan
connections may also have come in handy in the theft of Carter’s debate notes for Reagan. We will not dwell here on the controversial allegations of the October Surprise, in which the Reagan camp reputedly negotiated with Iran to deny Carter an election boost by delaying the release of 52 American hostages, beyond saying that former Reagan campaign and White House aide Barbara Honegger makes a compelling case against the man she once revered in her book, October Surprise. That treasonous deal, she asserts, explains why the secret arms shipments to Iran didn’t begin in 1985 but in 1981 and continued, she writes, “regardless of whether American captives were released, tortured, killed or seized anew in Lebanon. It explains why U.S. arms shipments to Iran continued even after Iran’s culpability in the bombing of the U.S. barracks and U.S. embassies in Beirut and Kuwait had been clearly demonstrated.” And that raises a good question: Why, unless there was an incriminating debt owed, would a U.S. administration trade arms for any reason to a country that had cold-bloodedly murdered 241 of our Marines, sailors and soldiers in their bunks in a Beirut outpost?
THE WRECKING CREW I may be wrong, but I’m never in doubt. —Ronald Reagan One thing that sets Reagan apart from Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon and other lying presidents is that Reagan believed his own lies. Even in the thick of the Iran-contra scandal—when Reagan was caught in one untruth after another and a Los Angeles Times poll showed that only 14 percent of Americans believed he wasn’t lying—he was never contrite. From his perspective, I suspect, he wasn’t lying: his reality was simply too great to be contained by the truth. Some have argued that Reagan literally couldn’t tell the difference between his role as president and roles he’d played or seen in the make-believe world of movies. When addressing an audience of Medal of Honor winners, Reagan told them the tear-welling story of one medal winner, a B-17 pilot who had gone
Ronald Reagan may not have remembered his ‘accomplishments’ in the years before his death, but we can’t forget them. By Jim Washburn to a citizen going through hard times—but his administration was also flat-out the most anti-democratic, hoodwinking, lying, Constitution-flouting, despot-coddling, rich-enriching, deficit-building, environment-despoiling, health-endangering, paranoid, cynical and fundamentally corrupt one in our nation’s history. Name a strip mine for it if you must, but no monuments, please. Chances are you’re reading this for one of two reasons: you agree with me and enjoy getting pissedoff all over again at the perfidies of the 1980s; or, more likely here in Reagan Country, you disagree and enjoy getting pissed-off reading liberal crap. It’s you latter folk I’d like to talk to here. I’ve enjoyed pissing you off, and I look forward to many more prosperous years of doing so. But even more, I want to convince you I’m right on this one because the nation we allowed ourselves to become in the 1980s was a rank perversion of the freedom and righteousness we all long for. I don’t blame Reagan

year, MCA rewarded Reagan by landing him a gig hosting the General Electric Theater program for the then-amazing sum of $125,000 per year. His duties also entailed becoming a spokesman for GE, traveling the country on their dime as he toured factories and made speeches touting free enterprise and damning “Marx-inspired” programs like Medicare and Social Security. In 1961, when questioned by a grand jury about the special consideration his union had given MCA, Reagan, known then for his nearphotographic memory, frequently said under oath that he couldn’t remember. Once a Roosevelt liberal, Reagan was by now a solid conservative, which some attribute to the influence of his second wife, Nancy. They married when she was one and a half months pregnant, a fact we note only in light of the moral standards Reagan later tried to impose on others. While his acting career had sputtered by the 1960s, he had become such a popular and well-paid
had historically been two countries—accelerated when he set his sights on the White House. Campaigning against Gerald Ford in 1976, Reagan asserted Ford was weak on defense and had let the U.S. become No. 2 in the world, neither of which was true. He repeated the same charges four years later against Jimmy Carter, who had merely served as an officer on a nuclear sub as opposed to Reagan’s sterling military record as a movie actor. Carter had backed numerous new weapons programs and increased military spending every year he was in office. Running against Carter in 1980, Reagan again campaigned as the quintessential outsider and Everyman, despite having spent his life as a Hollywood movie star, high-paid corporate shill and professional politician with a $3 million home. With ex-CIA director George Bush onboard as his running mate, most Everymen also didn’t have former and active CIA agents providing them with intelligence on the sitting president’s foreign-policy moves. Those
down with his plane rather than abandon a trapped, injured gunner. It was a touching story, but it never happened. Rather than recount the story of one of the genuine heroes seated before him, Reagan’s tale was from the 1944 film A Wing and a Prayer. He once told Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir that he had witnessed the suffering of the concentration camps firsthand, filming their liberation with the Signal Corps in World War II. Not unless there were death camps along Santa Monica Boulevard: Reagan was in California for the entire war. At one point, deep in the mire of Israel’s invasion of Lebanon, Beirut dispatched an ambassador to the White House. Reagan was awakened to meet with the man, who told the president and his aides a tale of treachery, terror and the apocalypse. The diplomat later noted that Reagan seemed to listen with real appreciation. Then the diplomat paused, and Reagan asked, “Did anyone ever tell you that you look like Danny Thomas?”
compelling argument of executive privilege, but simply because they didn’t want the people to know the people’s business. You can draw your own parallels to Dick Cheney’s stonewalling on his secret meetings with Enron officials. One bit of good environmental action emerged from the Reagan years: Congress passed an extension of the Clean Water Act. Reagan vetoed it, of course, but Congress overrode his veto. In other areas, antitrust regulations were ignored, workplace safety was compromised, medical research and services were curtailed, understaffing and underfunding of agencies contributed to everything from lax customs inspections to space shuttle explosions, AIDS was a disease Reagan couldn’t even bring himself to mention, and ketchup was almost reclassified as a vegetable for school lunch programs. Don’t like rap music? Blame Reagan. His administration slashed inner-city programs like Head Start,
and his budget cuts forced schools to drop “nonessential” programs such as the arts. Remove the music education and access to instruments from kids who still have an artistic impetus, and you get rap. As we Californians learned anew in our energyderegulation woes, a bit of government regulation isn’t necessarily a bad thing. In 1982, Reagan signed the law deregulating the savings and loan industry, announcing, “All in all, I think we’ve hit the jackpot,” which many wealthy thieves did—leaving the rest of us to pay the casino for the most expensive boondoggle in U.S. history. Though there were plenty of Democrats involved in that mess, don’t forget to thank Reagan as well for costing us hundreds of billions of dollars in freeing us from those fussy regulations. Nowhere were Reagan’s civic Luddites more cynically effective than at the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Programs intended to finance and build low-cost housing for the poor
instead became a cash trough for the administration’s cronies. In eight years of unabated corruption that only came to light during the Bush administration, HUD, Congress found, had lost billions of taxpayer dollars to fraud and mismanagement. As if cutting HUD’s budget 57 percent hadn’t been enough, much of the remaining funding was allocated by ideological appointees with no housing experience, low-cost or otherwise. They awarded contracts to persons with even less experience, such as James Watt, who, after being forced from his Interior job for telling one racist joke too many, was paid $440,000 for making a few phone calls to HUD. One outraged observer wrote, “It now appears that the taxpayers will take a loss of at least $2 billion (it ultimately was more than $8 billion) on the cozy little, sleazy little, greedy little deals that were made. Let it be said up top: the primary responsibility for this debacle lies squarely in the lap of Ronald Reagan.” The source of this quotation? Conservative columnist James J. Kirkpatrick. Like Dubya’s call to let “faith-based” organizations cure society’s ills, Reagan said he believed his budget gouges could be offset by citizens practicing the biblical notion of tithing, as he said, “the giving of a tenth to charity.” Reporters’ perusal of Reagan’s tax records found that he was giving more like a hundredth—1.4 percent—of his own earnings to charity. And the next time someone tries to tell you that Reagan was a fiscal conservative, remind them that he left the country with a financial debt that surpassed the debts accrued under all other U.S. presidents combined and that he never once submitted a balanced budget to Congress. That bit of fiscal restraint was left to a Democrat, Bill Clinton. Speaking of Bubba, the conservative-bias media went apeshit when he pardoned fugitive financier Marc Rich. Imagine the howls if Rich had gone on to kill his ex-wife, dismember her body and burn it. Oregon authorities in December 2000 arrested Robert Wendell Walker Jr. for doing just that to his former bride. Reagan had pardoned the convicted bank robber in 1981. Law-enforcement authorities could not recall another instance in which such a violent criminal had received a presidential pardon. Walker had no political ties, and no one knows to this day why Reagan cut him loose.
YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH Not every government office suffered under Reagan. He bloated the Pentagon with the largest peacetime military buildup in our history, while the National Security Council, which had a staff of 35 at the height of the Vietnam War under LBJ, swelled to 255 employees under Reagan. Spying on American citizens reached new heights, with numerous examples of government infiltration of labor unions and of organizations opposed to our involvement in Central and South America. And we were pretty involved, backing the wrong sides in El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Chile, Argentina and other military dictatorships or oligarchies where citizens were living under hideously worse circumstances than our founding fathers had endured. In many cases, they were virtual slaves, with no vote and no rights in dictatorships that routinely tortured and murdered opposition voices. (Guatemala’s three-decade-old military regime, described by Reagan as “totally committed to democracy,” killed more than 200,000 of its own people in the 1980s. In Argentina, it has since been revealed, the babies of murdered political prisoners were given

When he proposed his Strategic Defense Initiative in 1983, the Star Wars technology he spoke of bore less relation to what scientists thought possible than to an “inertia projector” he had guarded in the 1940 Warner Bros. spy movie Murder in the Air. His era of movies didn’t deal in ambiguities but clearly defined good guys and bad guys. There’s no drama if the bad guy is a pushover, so in Reagan’s real-time movie, the Soviet Union became the Evil Empire. He claimed they had superiority over us in submarine and missile technology, when the opposite was true. With our multi-warhead missiles, we had a clear atomic superiority, if such a thing even matters once you’re untold megatons beyond mutually assured destruction. Reagan stated the Soviets were engaged in a massive military buildup, while its growth had been essentially flat since 1975, with most of its new resources supporting its war in Afghanistan, which proved to be the Soviets’ Vietnam. And now, of course, it has become our Afghanistan, with our troops fighting a regime of extremist thugs, some of them “freedom fighters” the Reagan administration trained and armed to fight the Soviets. Osama bin Laden was one of the freedomhating freedom fighters enjoying our none-too-particular largesse back then. In Reagan’s world of absolutes, there were no pollution problems and the homeless were that way because they chose to be. Jobless? Reagan would wave a 30-page want ads section at you, heedless that most of the jobs required a high level of skill. Welfare was to be judged wholly on the evidence of a “Chicago Welfare Queen,” who in Reagan Anecdote Land had used 80 names and 30 addresses to bilk the system of $150,000 but in reality was a woman accused of using four names to accrue $8,000. Recall how Republicans hammered Al Gore as a habitual liar after he uttered a few half-truths? Reagan quite possibly never gave a speech without lying, and it wasn’t dopey stuff about what medications his dog was taking but instead was the material that shaped his administration. Based on a few skewed anecdotes about wasteful, bureaucratic government, Reagan set about dismantling it. The people he brought in to head the various departments were mostly persons with a noted antipathy for those departments, such as Secretary of the Interior James Watt, whose previous job was running anti-environmentalist Joseph Coors’ Mountain States Legal Foundation. Watt proudly didn’t enforce the Endangered Species Act or strip-mining laws, gave billions of dollars of publicly-held coal reserves to private companies, and tried to put another 30 million acres of public land into private hands. Watt said he saw no need to preserve our environment for future generations because he was convinced the Lord was returning soon to scourge the earth clean anyway. That’s good, solid science for you: the world is just a big cheese wheel, and Reagan’s godly men were privileged to know the expiration date, so forget about having respect or wonder for the magnificent and fragile processes that make the planet work, forget future generations or a sense of responsible stewardship. Just shut up and drink your slurry. Watt’s counterpart at the Environmental Protection Agency, Anne Gorsuch, was similarly lax about enforcing existing laws and allowed the agency’s new policies to be shaped by the same corporations accused of violating pollution laws. When Congress questioned these cozy ties, the Reagan administration initially refused to turn over requested documents (Gorsuch was cited for contempt of Congress), not for national security reasons or a

interested in policy at all,” remarked Henry Kissinger, whose impression was that Reagan knew little of foreign affairs and was uninterested in learning. “He would try to avoid policy discussions. If he couldn’t, he’d resort to his cue cards… He was an actor, the quintessential actor. What he said was what he believed.” When Reagan eventually traveled to Russia, he was reportedly astounded to learn that—contrary to his deepest beliefs about America representing truth, justice and blue Superman-like hair—many Soviet citizens lived in fear of the United States. Jeez, just because he had them ringed with nukes, derided them as the Evil Empire, and at times raised serious doubts as to whether Reagan could tell his lunch from a launch code? Him, the man with his finger on the button, who had once erroneously asserted that Trident missiles could be recalled once launched? The president whose staff members spoke in terms of a “winnable” nuclear war “if there are enough shovels to go around” to dig shelters? The leader who had joked over a live radio microphone, “My fellow Americans, I am pleased to tell you that I just signed legislation which outlaws Russia forever. The bombing begins in five minutes.”
those confines was rejected out of hand. As one of his White House aides put it, “Reagan doesn’t have the knack for weighing alternatives.” He kept to his storehouse of hoary anecdotes and invented scenarios that always arrived at the same conclusions: communism was the only threat to our wellbeing, and big government was too much like communism. You could be a sultan, a generalissimo, a puppet, whatever, just so long as you claimed not to be a communist and let American businessmen do their thing on your soil. At home, you could privatize government functions out to the sleaziest privateers, and that was preferable to effective government programs. If you didn’t see the world as he did, you were being duped. When, on June 11, 1982, nearly a million people rallied in New York’s Central Park to support a nuclear freeze, Reagan dismissed that huge and historic protest as the work of “foreign agents.” It simplifies life when you never test your beliefs or consider the views of others. Reagan took a similarly simple approach to being the chief executive, essentially working the way that he had for GE: he showed up when required, donned makeup, read a speech well and left the details to others. “It’s very unusual to have a president who is not
In his first press conference as president, Reagan said of the Soviets, “They reserve unto themselves the right to commit any crime, to lie, to cheat, in order to attain their ends.” It’s a description that eight years later would sum up the Reagan White House.

up for adoption to members of the ruling class.) Yet, by Reagan’s measure, the citizens of these countries and others like them—consider the example of Ferdinand Marcos’ Philippines—were supposed to be proud that the government torturing and murdering them wasn’t communist. Shortly after moving into the White House, Reagan told The Wall Street Journal, “Let us not delude ourselves. The Soviet Union underlies all the unrest that is going on. If they weren’t engaged in this game of dominoes, there wouldn’t be any hot spots in the world.” By that world-view, if it weren’t for Russia, South Africa would have been a nation of happily disenfranchised darkies singing in the mines. If Reagan had his way, there might still be a brisk market in “Free Nelson Mandela” T-shirts. It was only by overriding Reagan’s veto that Congress joined the rest of the civilized world in passing sanctions against the brutal, racist South African government. I know people who met Reagan, and they didn’t think he seemed like the sort of fellow who’d cozy up to murderers or enjoy blighting the environment. Was he evil? I think it was more that he simply didn’t get it. He had his beliefs, and information that didn’t fit
JUNE 10, 2004
DARK MATTER Reagan once told a story about agents of Nicaragua’s Sandinista government pulling a freedomloving newspaper editor from his home and executing him in front of his pleading children. He related this tale with unbridled anger and contempt for cowards who would do such a thing. But like many a Reagan tale told with utter conviction, it was an utter fabrication. When the Great Communicator’s press office was asked for the details of this atrocity, they had to admit it hadn’t happened—or anything like it. The Sandinistas were not the world’s most democratic government, but they were infinitely more so than the dictator they deposed, Anastasio Somoza. His family had treated Nicaragua like its own private labor camp since a U.S. intervention brought them to power in the 1930s. Perhaps Reagan had his S’s confused: in the 1970s, a Somoza business partner had an opposition newspaper editor murdered. And it
was members of Somoza’s feared National Guard who executed American ABC newsman Bill Stewart in the streets of Managua. Unlike Reagan’s fiction, that latter event was captured on film. Once the Sandinistas ousted Somoza in 1979, in a few short years, they drastically cut their nation’s malnutrition and infant-mortality rate, raised literacy and embarked on other ambitious public programs, without the benefit of the U.S. aid lavished on Somoza (who had fled the country with a fortune believed to be worth between $100 million and $500 million). They could have been more democratic than they were, but it’s hard to be perfect when the world’s most powerful nation is trying to crush you. More on that soon, but let’s first look at some of the other fronts on which the Reagan administration was staving off the communist menace. Not content with possessing enough nukes to destroy all human life several times over, the Reagan administration attempted to up the ante through a broad “reinterpreting” of the Anti Ballistic Missile treaty. This effort even attracted the ire of hawkish Georgia Senator Sam Nunn, and the Senate Foreign Relations Committee issued a report calling it “the most flagrant abuse of the Constitution’s treaty process in 200 years of American history.” In 1983 Reagan proposed his Strategic Defense Initiative, which he posited as “a shield that could protect us from nuclear missiles just as a roof protects a family from rain.” For the rest of his time in office, Reagan and his camp would routinely claim that, “genuine breakthroughs have been made,” only to have SDI scientists counter that there were no breakthroughs and that they were upset by the White House hype. Sixteen hundred U.S. scientists sent a letter to Congress asserting that the program was wasteful and only spurred the arms race. By 1987, even the top people in the SDI program were admitting it might never be able to protect the population and would, at best, only be able to shield some of our missiles from attack. To counter international fears that SDI could give the U.S. a first-strike advantage, Reagan claimed he would share the technology with the Soviets. Top military officials followed in his wake to say, no, we wouldn’t. The Soviets themselves gave little credence to Reagan’s offer, since, as Mikhail Gorbachev pointed out, the U.S. was unwilling to share even dairyfarming technology with them. The SDI research money was in addition to our military budget, which, coupled with rich-favoring tax cuts, gave us the multi-trillion dollar debt we’ve been saddled with ever since. As if all those resources weren’t enough, the White House also diverted a substantial chunk of Federal Emergency Management Agency monies to build nuke-shielded mobile communications centers, handy only if your emergency happened to be an atomic war. That left the agency shortchanged for the workaday disasters—floods, hurricanes, earthquakes and the like—that didn’t stir Reagan’s fancy the way Armageddon did. Two decades and $100 billion later, we are not one whit safer, which is what happens when you sell wishful thinking as science. After Gorbachev came to power in 1985, the White House never noticed things were changing and didn’t notice until the Bush administration was blindsided by the collapse of the Soviet Union. Reagan always enjoyed recounting his first private meeting with Gorbachev in Geneva, which he made sound like a movie scene: he coaxed the Soviet leader aside to a private room where, he said, the two of them could get to know each other man-to-
man. Unless they did it by kissing, it’s hard to see how, since neither spoke the other’s language. They might as well have done without interpreters at the summits, for all the attention Reagan paid. Members of his administration have since said they went to the Reykjavik summit mainly because they saw it as a meet ‘n’ greet that could give their man a boost in the polls. They arrived unprepared and were caught off-guard by the sweeping arms-reduction proposals the Soviets made, including an offer to reduce even conventional forces. Reagan countered by telling jokes with anti-Soviet punch lines and relating a story he’d read in People magazine about a 1,200-pound man. Even Reagan fan Colin Powell found the president’s lack of preparation offensive. After that first day of meetings, Reagan told an aide, “I’d better go do my homework. Mikhail has all those details.” The sticking point in the summits was always Reagan’s cherished if chimeral Star Wars plans. Gorbachev, whose scientists told him the same things about its feasibility that American scientists were saying, ultimately told Reagan, “Go ahead and deploy it. Who am I to tell you what to do? I think you’re wasting money. I don’t think it will work.” When the two sides did eventually forge an INF treaty, it was signed at precisely 1:45 p.m. on Dec. 8, 1987, because that’s when Nancy Reagan’s astrologer, Joan Quigley, said to sign. Quigley, it transpired, made several decisions for the White House. I know a Christian Republican who told me last year that he could never vote for John McCain because the warhero senator had once been involved with a New Age organization. This same man adores Reagan and is unbothered by the notion of a president who paid more attention to arcane mumbo jumbo than he did to the “details” of waging a nuclear war. While America continued to build guns and missiles, Gorbachev acted unilaterally to reduce Soviet conventional and nuclear forces. The tremendous political and social changes rippling through the USSR, Reagan boosters will tell you, were due to the Gipper standing tall. Bullpucky. What happened is what the grand old Republican Harold Stassen had predicted: the Soviet Union collapsed under its own dead weight. Gorbachev was a realist who recognized the system had failed. He didn’t need a fantasist like Reagan to tell him change was needed. Russians wanted what the West had, and it wasn’t missiles or Reagan’s hair dye. They wanted Levi’s and rock & roll, the very music James Watt had tried to ban from America’s Fourth of July celebration in D.C. While Reagan had little effect on the Soviet Union, he had a devastating one on Central America, where a popular revolution and a subsequent election had brought the Sandinistas to power in Nicaragua, and another revolution was raging in El Salvador. Within two months of taking office, the White House and the CIA covertly created an insurgent force to wage war on Nicaragua. Some who joined Reagan’s fight were patriots who had fought against Somoza but felt betrayed by the new regime’s move to the left. Most, though, and the ones Reagan’s CIA backed, were the same ex-National Guard totalitarian thugs the country had just rid itself of. Their anointed leader, Enrique Bermudez, had headed the National Guard and been Somoza’s military attaché in Washington. Reagan called these goons “the moral equivalent of the founding fathers” struggling at Valley Forge. U.S. support for the contras, as they were dubbed, was originally sold to Congress as a limited operation to staunch the flow of arms to rebels in El Salvador. When it became clear the White House was instead
orchestrating the overthrow of the Nicaraguan government, congressmen weren’t happy. On Dec. 8, 1982, they passed the Boland Amendment prohibiting funding for the contras. The amendment carried in the House 411 to 0. The White House later got Congress to approve limited funding for food and medical supplies. What they didn’t mention was that they were still secretly funding the contras against the wishes—and outside the knowledge—of the American public. In January 1984, Reagan secretly approved the CIA’s covert mining of Nicaraguan harbors, intended to block shipping and destroy the country’s feeble economy. Ships from several nations were subsequently damaged, including a Soviet oil tanker. When the CIA’s role was revealed by The Wall Street Journal that April, there was a new uproar, leading to a second fundsstopping Boland Amendment passed in October.
the efforts closest to Reagan’s heart: our military buildup was matched by gigantic procurement corruption scandals, and—in the only way the contras were similar to the troops at Valley Forge—the mercenaries in the field were often underfed and illequipped because everyone on down the line was grabbing a cut of the action for themselves. In trying to win overt support for the contras, Reagan sank to the lowest level of fearmongering and hucksterism when he made speeches citing the number of miles between Nicaragua and Harlingen, Texas, as if the besieged Sandinistas were going to hop on a Greyhound bus and wage war on us. This while we were mining their harbors, violating their airspace, sabotaging their economy and secretly funding a war of terror against them—burning crops; bombing power stations; and massacring men, women and children. Reagan’s scare tactics were all the more cynical
covert war to kill people who were not our enemy. While the White House paper shredders were working overtime, Reagan addressed the nation on Nov. 13, 1986. Even more emphatically than our dear Bill Clinton later intoned, “I did not have sex with that woman,” Reagan faced the familiar cameras and said, “These charges are utterly false.” He proceeded to lie about trading arms for hostages, about the amount of arms traded, and about having kept U.S. officials in the dark. Six days later, he was back on TV, repeating some of those lies and adding new ones. Though a presidential aide issued corrections within the hour and Reagan’s own diaries showed he was in the arms-for-hostages loop, he could never bring himself to admit what he’d done. Rather, he told conflicting stories to the press and three irreconcilable versions of events to Congress. Others took the fall while staffers raised the shield
If you didn’t see the world as he did, you were being duped. When, on June 11, 1982, nearly a million people rallied in New York’s Central Park to support a nuclear freeze, Reagan dismissed that huge and historic protest as the work of “foreign agents.” By law, the White House was required to inform the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence of the covert operation. It hadn’t, and committee chairman Barry Goldwater (a shining example of what a Republican can stand for) was incensed, writing to CIA director Bill Casey, “I am pissed-off. . . . This is an act violating international law. It is an act of war. For the life of me, I don’t see how we are going to explain it.” The International Court of Justice agreed when Nicaragua brought the case to the Hague. While the U.S. had frequently used the same court to enforce international agreements, Reagan chose to ignore its ruling this time, making us a rogue state in the eyes of much of the world. The covert, illegal funding of the contras continued, with Lt. Colonel Oliver North and others soliciting secret contributions from foreign states, making us beholden to them in ways we were never meant to know about. Among the nations entrusted with this potential blackmail material were Saudi Arabia, Taiwan and the Sultanate of Brunei, who sent millions to numbered Swiss bank accounts administered from the White House. One bit of comic relief: the Sultanate was given the wrong account number and deposited $10 million into some lucky stranger’s account. Other strange bedfellows were enlisted, such as Panamanian leader, CIA employee and No. 1 drug runner Manuel Noriega. Clandestine flights delivered arms to the contras and came back loaded with cocaine destined for the U.S. That several top contras were smuggling coke into the States is established fact. If you have doubts that the CIA or White House knew of this, read the literature and make up your own mind. Such allegations would be harder to believe, though, if known truths weren’t barely more conscionable. These elaborate steps—Swiss accounts, dummy corporations, secret flights, etc.—were taken not to deceive the Nicaraguans, who could pretty well figure out where the bullets were coming from, but to deceive the American Congress and public. It is a grand irony that the White House’s free-market attitude and penchant for secrecy crippled even
given that the only Americans killed in Nicaragua had been murdered by the contras. It was a similar story across the border in El Salvador, where Reagan wholeheartedly supported the military government, despite the fact that U.S.-supplied soldiers raped and murdered three American nuns, along with killing an archbishop and anyone else they felt like. Confronted with the evidence, Reagan aides argued (until even they were shamed into silence) that the nuns were rebel gunrunners. Our American tax dollars used to kill Americans, even nuns, in the name of defeating godless communism: if I had to live with a contradiction like that rattling around inside my head, I’d pray to get Alzheimer’s. In 1981, Reagan, who had criticized Carter for negotiating with Iran, declared, “America will never make concessions to terrorists” and said, “Let terrorists beware: when the rules of international behavior are violated, our policy will be one of swift and effective retribution.” We could almost imagine the missiles flying toward our avowed foes. What we couldn’t imagine was that those missiles would be flying aboard cargo jets, delivered to those enemies to use at their pleasure. Reagan also sent them a cake and a Bible. The nagging October Surprise question aside, by 1985, the administration was shipping arms to Iran, ostensibly in exchange for American hostages, and arranging for intermediary countries such as Israel to do so as well, in violation of the Arms Control Export Act, an embargo on Iran the U.S. had arranged—and in violation of the president’s own tough talk. The president is required to make a finding to Congress of covert acts, informing select members of the acts and justifying how the nation would be served by them. Reagan didn’t, another violation of the law. In October 1986, CIA recruit Eugene Hasenfus was shot down over Nicaragua while on an arms run to the contras, and the truth came oozing out in the following weeks: the White House had been arming our enemies in secret and using the profits to fund a
of “plausible deniability” high around Reagan— raised it so high that, if Bill Clinton had taken a similar tack, he might just as reasonably have argued that he didn’t know he had oral sex in the Oval Office. During the congressional hearings on the scandal, Senator John Kerry said of the Reagan White House, “They were willing to literally put the Constitution at risk because they believed there was somehow a higher order of things, that the ends do in fact justify the means. That’s the most Marxist, totalitarian doctrine I’ve ever heard of in my life. You’ve done the very thing that James Madison and others feared when they were struggling to put the Constitution together, which was to create an unaccountable system with runaway power running off against the will of the American people.”
BEDTIME FOR DEMOCRACY At the last Reagan/Gorbachev summit—by which time the changes in the Soviet Union were evident to everyone except Reagan—the Russian leader asked Colin Powell, “What are you going to do now that you’ve lost your best enemy?” A good question because, under Reagan, America had ceased being America. It no longer stood for anything, only against some other thing. While Reagan lectured Russian college students about freedom, he had debased the word beyond meaning by his actions in Central America, where we lay abed with tyrants and murderers, and at home, where his government conspired to act in secret for the selfish advantage of a few. The core values of Reagan’s governance lay not in a representative republic or, as Kerry suggested, a communist state, but instead hearkened all the way back to feudalism. Your feudal lord didn’t have to heed your wishes or act in your interests. For your allegiance, he only had to offer to protect you from the lord on the next hill, who was pointing your way and telling his vassals the same thing: that a dark woods lay between, where dark things must happen so that you might sleep secure, things you had best not ask

about, children. Who better than a movie star, America’s royalty, to convey the message that God shone his grace on some more than others? These chosen ones, your leaders and captains of industry, were more equal than others, capable of handling the secrets and backroom deals, and if they benefited from that, it’s because they deserved to. It’s no wonder that such men felt a kinship with the despots and satraps of the world, who stood for everything America supposedly didn’t. But what about Reagan’s popularity? Those who have recently been rouging Reagan’s image like to remind us that he won re-election with the largest total vote count in U.S. history. They are less keen on telling how by 1987, polls showed that Gorbachev was more popular with Americans than their own president was. Nor do they note that the candidate with the secondgreatest vote count in our history, Al Gore, wound up teaching college instead of being president. Still, there’s no ignoring that Reagan was—and remains—a very popular American figure. One explanation to me is that when our founding fathers were rebelling against the British monarchy, a lot of Americans didn’t share their fervor but preferred to go on clinging to a monarch’s hem. I doubt the percentages have changed much since then. There are still many folks who would rather have a daddy figure or lord up on the hill to tell them simple lies, rather than to be accountable themselves for the responsibilities of freedom. Oliver North and his ilk were only able to work in the dark because so few Americans were willing to shine a light there. To some, it never occurred that unchecked power might be misused. To entirely too many others, a cynical world-view prevailed that it’s a compromised, dog-eat-dog world where corruption and injustice are the accepted coin of the realm. And a lot of people simply watched TV. Eternal vigilance is the price of freedom, so listen to the voices in Washington now: the ones using the fight against “evildoers” instead of the “Evil Empire” as a reason to trample our civil rights; the ones willing to stifle a worker’s right to strike but not a power consortium’s right to imperil our state’s economy and public safety; the ones anxious to risk a new Cold War and higher deficits with their unworkable Star Wars sequel; the ones sacrificing the environment to an ideology that confuses freedom with boundless exploitation; the ones who have named Iran-contra figure John Negroponte—accused of covering up U.S.-sponsored death squad activities in Honduras (including the murder of an American priest; spot a trend here?)—to represent our nation’s ideals and aspirations in the United Nations. All this under the aegis of another fumbling, nice-guy president. Goddamn it! This is not the nation we envisioned when we were kids, proud to see our flag flying, proud of the just, kind, freedom-loving people we believed ourselves to be. This is not the reality we want our own kids to have to wake up to. Everyone says they love their country. But love is action, and the American Dream is nothing more than a dream if people don’t act on it. At a 1985 White House reception at which Elie Wiesel was awarded the Congressional Gold Medal, the famed Holocaust expert attempted to dissuade Reagan, unsuccessfully, from participating in a ceremony at Bitburg, a German cemetery where elite SS troops were interred. Having witnessed the Holocaust, Wiesel said, “I have learned the danger of indifference, the crime of indifference. For the opposite of love, I have learned, is not hate, but indifference.” MTW

It was a lazy Sunday morning, perhaps the laziest ever. I wore my housedress from the night before and shuffled around the house, cleaning the fridge, vacuuming the living room and washing some desperately-needed clothes. By noon I strolled into the living room to watch TV with one of my housemates. It was a boring kung-fu movie, so naturally we turned to each other to talk for hours about nothing and everything. Once we’d figured it all out, we went out to get some juice. Hana Bay Juice Company was started by the young couple Christina and Steve Domerego three years ago. “We’re a picnic stop disguised as a juice store,” said Christina, 26, originally from Oahu. They serve box lunches to folks driving to Hana, complete with a choice of sandwich, side salad, chips and dessert for $8.50. Hana Bay also has a selection of juices, smoothies and breakfast bagels. Shots of ginseng, spirulina, bee pollen, protein powder and noni juice can be added to drinks as well for 50 cents to a dollar. But on this particular lazy Sunday my friends and I just wanted smoothies. There’s a range of non-fat and non-dairy drinks for around $4-5 each, not counting the 10 percent kama’aina discount. One of my friends got the “Papaya Passion” flavor, with papaya, banana, strawberries and lilikoi juice. “It’s the freshest puree available,” said Christina of the lilikoi. “We pick the fruit in summer, and some of our friends bring garbage bags full of fruit for us.” Another friend enjoyed the “Black Sand Beach” smoothie with blueberries, raspberries, apple and pineapple juice. “I like the color,” he said. “It’s more like purple sand beach. It’s nice and thick, and very cold. Don’t drink too fast, you’ll get an ice-cream headache.” I asked for a blend of papayas, banana and lilikoi juice, and couldn’t stop drinking it (against the given instruction) long enough to consider why it was so good. But we all agreed that the smoothies were filling and went down fast. The next day, Monday morning, was a little bit more of a busy time, where I had stuff to do and places to go, but Hana Bay Juice Company was the first stop. “This is a place where you can pick up something quick and healthy at the same time,” Christina had said earlier. “Not everyone has time.” A tourist couple from Ft. Worth, Texas, were in there selecting their box lunches for the long drive ahead of them. Bree and Scotty heard of the Juice Company from their hotel in Wailea, where they’d
Anuhea Jenkins drinking the profits purchased the Hana Audio Tour CD. “Steve and I made the CD,” said Christina, back behind the counter. “Without revealing too much it tells you where to stop, and the history of the highway.” Christina and her assistant Anuhea Jenkins quickly made me a “Shaka” sandwich: sliced turkey and provolone with lettuce, tomato, sprouts and basil mayo served, like all their sandwiches, on a panini roll. Other sandwich options include roast beef, ham and cheese, crab salad, sundried tomato and hummus, and smoked salmon with capers, all for about $6-7. A few hours later I unwrapped my sandwich on a picnic table outside work and enjoyed the thick slices of turkey, salty cheese and sweet ripe tomato. The sprouts were pleasantly crunchy and the bread was not too filling. It was the perfect size for a mid-day meal, energizing me enough to go back to work without being heavy. My brain was alert for the rest of day, even without spirulina or ginseng. Thanks, Christina. Hana Bay Juice Company is located at 111A Hana Highway in Paia town. They’re open 7 days a week from 7:30 a.m., until 3:30 on weekdays and until 2 p.m. on Sat. and Sun. Don’t let Sunday be too lazy or you’ll miss them. MTW

EMPLOYEE OF THE
WEEK B Y A N T H O N Y P I G N ATA R O
Tracy Edelhertz Caterer, Triptop Productions It’s so weird how I got the name of my business. I was having a dream in which I was sitting in a field under a tree contemplating what I wanted to do, when somebody came up to me and said, “The name of your business is Triptop.” I woke up, and that was all I remembered from the dream. I have no idea who that person was and I never dreamed about him again. My very first job was at 14. I worked in an Italian bakery. I worked the counter, but the owner knew I was really interested. He would make special things for me to try like Ricotta Pie. Some people call it cheesecake, but it has a different kind of pastry than pie. It’s more of a bread. The filling also has lemon peel in it or something to add zest. Sometimes they add chocolate chips. I teach at the PACE program of continuing adult education at Maui Community College. I feel I have a lot to teach in regards to cooking and nutrition. Eventually I’d like to work towards writing and TV. I don’t really have a favorite type of cuisine because I’ll try anything. I really like Oriental cuisine, and I say that in the broadest sense of the word. I don’t really have a favorite. I do small party catering. I can do a pupu party for up to 80 or a sit-down dinner for up to 40 people. I also do private cheffing and in-home cooking classes. The nice thing there is we get to eat what we create. I try to do so many different things. I did a traditional Middle Eastern party at my house. We decorated the house so it was like walking into Genie’s bottle. I also did a Middle Eastern belly dance before the meal— I’ve been dancing for four years. It was a very traditional dinner: I made homemade kesra, which is a flatbread, Lamb Tagine with country salad and roasted vegetable and saffron cous cous. For dessert I did a rose-scented crème caramel. MTW

PARALLEL LINES When filmmaker Nina Davenport hops in her car and heads cross-country after the terrorist attacks of September 11th, she uses her video camera to unlock the personal stories of hope, loss and redemption of the strangers and unexpected soul mates she meets along the way. Much more than a singular portrait of 9/11, this funny, intimately insightful and life-affirming documentary is a spiritual snapshot of rural America.

MAUI FILM FESTIVAL’S CANDLELIGHT CAFÉ & CINEMA Wednesday, June 16 Peaceable Kingdom 5 p.m. Castle Theater This thoughtful documentary explores the interconnected life journeys of farm animals, former farmers and animal rescuers struggling against the overwhelming power of the corporate farmers of America. 77 min.
RAISING HELEN - (PG13) - Romantic/Comedy There might be some plot here about a single, young chick who suddenly has to care for her sister’s three kids after a tragic accident, but what this movie is really all about is how damn cute Kate Hudson is. How cute she is when she laughs and her nose crinkles up, how cute she is when she cries and her nose crinkles up—so cute, in fact, that a local pastor (played by hunky John Corbett) falls madly in love with her. SHREK 2 - (PG) - Animation - This green ogre (Mike Meyers) marries this princess (Cameron Diaz) and live in swamp with their donkey friend (Eddie Murphy). The princess’ parents happen to be the King (John Cleese) and Queen (Julie Andrews) of Far Far Away and they’re pissed so the dad plots to have the ogre, Shrek, killed by Puss ‘n Boots (Antonio Banderas) so that the princess can be freed up to marry the Fairy Godmother’s son Prince Charming (Rupert Everett), who we all know doesn’t exist anyway so what is she thinking?!
Even with weird eyes, he’s still hot SOUL PLANE - (R) - Comedy - Snoop Dogg and Method Man star in this comedy that revolves around the first all-black airline, NWA, replete with sexy stewardesses (not “flight attendants!”), funky music (no Celine Dion!) and a dance club (yeah, now we’re talking!), along with the guffaws that occur when a white family (led by Tom Arnold) is—oops!—booked on their first flight. TROY -- (R) -- Epic Adventure - Brad Pitt and Orlando Bloom put on dresses and act out that classic war epic about the war between Greek city states and Troy. They’ve got the delicious Diane Kruger playing Helen, the original blonde bombshell whose face supposedly launched a thousand ships, but the movie’s main thrust is on Pitt’s golden locks and iron biceps. VAN HELSING - (PG13) - Thriller/Suspense - In what originally looked like a remake of Abbott and Costello meet Frankenstein but actually isn’t, “monster hunter” Dr. Van Helsing (Hugh Jackman) tramps around 19th Century Eastern Europe battling vampire bimbos, Frankenstein’s monster, the Wolf Man and quite possibly the Invisible Man, Jekyll and Hide and Ming the Merciless. Also stars hottie Kate Beckinsale.

THE CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK - (PG13) Science Fiction/Adventure - For those who don’t remember—I had to look it up, so don’t feel bad—Riddick (Vin Diesel, who was actually best when he played that robot killing machine in the animated Iron Giant) was the bad-ass dude who could see in the dark in that film Pitch Black that came out a few years ago. Anyway, now he’s caught in some big 26th Century intergalactic war (small intergalactic wars never rate movies, it seems) and lots of stuff gets blown up. GARFIELD - (PG) - Comedy - Movie version of the comic strip that follows the adventures of a sleepy, orange, fat cat (voice of Bill Murray) that eats a lot of lasagna and cracks wise (of course)

Sexy, Scary and Fun 14 reasons why you should go see Pepper live It’s been said the best thing to come out of Kona is a three-man, ska-punk band called Pepper. A little bit dancehall, a little bit dub rock, Pepper hit the mainland a couple years ago in the mega-act Vans Warped Tours, gaining recognition and respect for their infectious energy and live performances. They have two albums: Kona Town, released in 2002 and their latest album, In With the Old, which was released this past March. And if you need more inspiration to see them live, here it is: 1. Pepper has stamina. They are a band so manic with energy and their love for music that they just got done playing 48 shows in 54 days on their last tour in the spring and are still fully prepared to “kill it” live on Maui. 2. Pepper loves the element of surprise. You might see bassist/vocalist Bret Bollinger give the security guard a sexy lap dance on his head or torch his armpit hair. You never know what to expect. 3. Pepper likes to play with the big boys. They’ve done the Vans Warped Tours from 2001-2003, which featured such bands as
JUNE 10, 2004
Rancid, Pennywise, Face to Face, the Dropkick Murphys and so many others. 4. Pepper is loyal. Drummer Yesod Williams, guitarist/vocalist Kaleo Wassman and Bollinger have been friends since high school, surviving drunken binges and the music industry as one solid unit. 5. Pepper isn’t sexist. They not only play music that girls can get their groove on to but also the kind of music to which guys can mosh and knock into each other. It’s a perfect Mars-Venus union. 6. Pepper’s heart remains in Hawaii. Because even though these rockers live in Southern California, all they want right now is one of those sold-out plate lunches from Kona Mixed Plate on the Big Island. 7. Pepper doesn’t discriminate musically. With a band that is influenced by everyone from the Police to Tool, Slayer to Yellowman, Led Zeppelin to Brother IZ, Kealii Reichel to Rage Against the Machine, what’s not to love? 8. Pepper goes with the flow. They don’t believe in creating set lists before each show. Instead they like to “feed off the crowd and just go into it,” sometimes even taking
Hear no evil, speak no evil.... oh, never mind requests for the occasional Clash or Fiji cover. 9. Pepper might be at Cannes next year! Okay, maybe not. But their new DVD, Searching for the Haj, will be out in July and features the boys acting with a plot and everything, along with their music as the soundtrack. So they could go to Cannes… 10. Pepper is wise. With keys-to-success advice like drummer Williams’ “Persistence is key” and “Follow your heart and just do what makes you happy,” Pepper proves they’re not only fun, but good for the kids, too! 11. Pepper is humble. The band has played something like 600 to 700 shows in their little more than five-year career, but they’re actually shocked by how far they’ve gone and still feel really lucky to be doing what they’re doing. 12. Pepper is going to be big. Really big. And because they’re going on their first headlining national tour this July, you may never have a chance to see them play the more inti-
mate venues, like Hapa’s, ever again! 13. Pepper is scared of electrocution. “Back in the day, we played down on the beach at Makalawena [Big Island] and we were playing in these puddles of mud. You ever seen that movie Almost Famous where that guy gets electrocuted? [We] have nightmares about that kind of stuff. More people die than you think from getting electrocuted at concerts,” said Williams. Awww… maybe Pepper just wants to be held? 14. They’re all pretty cute. Oh wait, I didn’t phrase that in a “Pepper is” sentence. Um, how about Pepper is all pretty cute. Yeah. Pepper will play two shows at Hapa’s Nightclub on Thursday (tonight!). The 6 p.m. show is all ages, 9 p.m. for 21 and over. Tickets are $15 in advance and are available at Borders Books & Music, all Maui Tacos locations, Hapa’s, Request Music in Wailuku and Groove 2 Music in Lahaina. For more info, call 879-9001. MTW
Maui Film Fest Begins Wed., 5 p.m. at the MACC and throughout Wailea Fast becoming one of the biggest and glitziest film festivals in the U.S., the Maui Film Festival will host dozens of great movies, shows and tons of celebrity sightings—many of which will be captured by CNN, which is pulling out the coverage stops this years. There will be premiers of movies like Two Brothers and Door in the Floor. There will be special tributes to Bill Maher, Angela Bassett, Woody Harrelson and independent filmmaker Ted Hope. There’s an opening night comedy show at Mulligans on the Blue. And there are all the usual great films and shorts at the MACC, the Sky Dome on the roof of the Marriott and, of course, on the beach. Get it? They’re showing movies on the beach… There was a movie called On the Beach… Oh, shut up. [ANTHONY PIGNATARO]
Don Carlos! Friday, 10 p.m. Hard Rock Café Don Carlos was one of the original members of reggae greats, Black Uhuru, back in ‘74, and has put out more than 20 solo albums since then. His mellow, silky smooth tenor vocals with passion and strength will be an inspiration. If you want to hear the real roots reggae sound of the ‘70s, this is it. Not a show to miss!

Little Big Man Friday, 9 p.m. at the SandBar; Saturday, 10 p.m. at Casanova Sometimes big things come in Little Big Man packages. That big reggae sound outta Seattle, that is. Little Big Man has been called “One of the best bands I’ve seen in a long time… tons of fun” by the Oregonian and “Catchy reggae with great harmonies” by the Stranger. Their sound is a blend of influences in roots reggae, jazz, funk and Hawaiian and they’ve performed with legends like Alpha Blondie, the Itals and Israel Vibrations.
David Icke: Illuminating the Illuminati Saturday, 9:30 a.m-7 p.m. at The Maui Theater, Lahaina David Icke believes that a secret society called the Illuminati has been orchestrating all world events since the ancient world. He recently told a reporter named Caleb Johns that “Hawaii is controlled financially, politically, judicially and militarily by a government working for the Illuminati agenda.” And he believes that “a secret network that controls the United States government, military and intelligence agencies” is what really destroyed the World Trade Center in 2001. Now some people call Icke an investigative journalist. Other people call the former British soccer player and sportscaster a conspiracy theorist. And still others call him a nut. So which one is he? Go and listen to him and then make up your own mind. At the very least, he’ll be interesting. [ANTHONY PIGNATARO]

BOOK YOUR AD TODAY!
ARIES: The words of love fall gently off of your lips. You’re attracted to causes that benefit the whole planet. Practice grace. Your social connections are strong. Domestic duties performed now will lead to creative freedom in the future. TAURUS: You need sandcastles and talismans. Material symbols of dreams can work for you in the same way a seed well nurtured yields a bountiful harvest. Don’t carry so much that it makes you weary. Make room for better things. GEMINI: Strut your stuff with dignity. Selfrespect is good but pride comes before the fall. You’ve got our attention, now dazzle us with brilliance. You’ve got what it takes to make a big splash. Get ready for a triumphant celebration. CANCER: As you finish one project you should be planning for the next one. Shortly after sunrise is your power time of the day for this week. Pay off bills and get rid of paperwork. Learn to move with grace even while you’re carrying something heavy. LEO: You love a good party so why not host one? You’re a natural people-pleasing person with a sense of animal magnetism. If you’re going to someone else’s party, be sure not to start your own on the spot. You have a way of getting people’s attention. VIRGO: Don’t take your coveralls off just quite yet. You still have more work to do. Call on others for help when you need to. It’s easy to fall in a relationship with political activists. Keep doing what you can to take advantage of new opportunities. LIBRA: You’re caught up in new frontiers. Vacations and explorations into uncharted territory are encouraged. As long as you’re not at work, risk taking is encouraged. It’s easier to learn and understand other languages than usual. SCORPIO: Like cement in a mixer, a piece of pottery in a kiln or wheat in a thresher, everything is a work in progress. It’s hard to see the peace when you’re in the midst of a battle. Peace is closer than you think. Meditate on calming thoughts. SAGITTARIUS: Barriers can be broken by initiating a discussion. You’ve got the best chance of making peace. Your give and take philosophy is catching on. Relationships are your number one focus. Much is tied in with other people. CAPRICORN: Breaking out into a sweat has never been easier. Hard work is everywhere for you to participate in. You could be headed for even more work. Carefully pace yourself and monitor health issues. By serving others, you welcome deeper relationships. AQUARIUS: Act up. Express yourself. This is your most creative period. It’s a good time to air your grievances. Say it in a song or in poetry. People can handle songs easier than dry truth. It’s time to get into a childlike, playful state of mind. PISCES: Get your facts together. Learn stories from older members of your family. Trust your intuition. Use less caffeine and drink more water. Be open to a positive solution. Honor your personal needs while helping others with their needs. HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Lloyd Jefferies 6/10/26, Bun E. Carlos 6/12/51, Leah Remini 6/15/70 email@example.com

‘Don’t put this in your column’ Yes, I really do everything you read about in this column. It’s not made up. And yes, there are things that happen that I don’t write about. Illegal things, or the names of sources who tip me off to illegal or sometimes just legal things that aren’t cool, romantic involvements and sometimes just intimate details of my life. All my sources have to do is ask nicely for me not to put something in the column. For the most part people have been kind and generous to me when I go out. I marvel at their warmth to me and my great luck in having such a fun and rewarding—although more frequently hangover-inducing—job. I am indebted to my supporters and gracious fellow debauchers island-wide. But to those not so warm: get over yourself. This column is intended for entertainment purposes only. The red zone is for immediate loading and unloading of passengers only. No parking, please. Last Wednesday, Sonja wanted us girls to have a “Roommate BBQ” at the Sugar Shack. So I joined Jen on the couch after work and waited for our roomie to emerge from her sleeping den, which she did—at around 6 p.m. She left as she told us that she just needed to get a few things at the store but that we would have our BBQ shortly. Cool, we said, and forgoing the usual movie at the MACC that night, Jen and I continued watching the sappy mom-daughter flick Anywhere But Here at home. When the movie ended, we wanted to ride our bikes down the street into the sunset. My bike suddenly had an extremely flat tire so I borrowed Sonja’s fancy-shmancy new bike, only to have it topple over and the basket break off. Naturally there was nowhere to go but the Sly Mongoose. When we got there around eight o’clock, who should be sitting at the bar but our lovely, barbeque-neglecting roommate, Sonja. “I’ll have food ready in 45 minutes!” she said, as she ordered another Jagermeister. So we had a few cocktails and joined in the Doors marathon that included a rousing singalong of “20th Century Fox.” “That song is so dated!” said Dennis. There was also talk of Alice, an endearing 86-year-old patron of the Goose, who had recently hankered up to the bar, slapped down her money and said, “I want a pack of Marlboro Lights, a shot of Root Beer Schnapps and a man that’s ready!” Talk about a 20th century fox.

Mind Body Spiri
Friday had TBB, BJ, Randiggity and myself caravanning—after a couple mango margaritas—down to Hapa’s in Kihei for the DJ Qbert show. Most of my favorite people were there, enjoying the amazing display of turntable scratching antics—albeit only for 45 minutes—while I was happily flirting and downing tequila shot after tequila shot with that one damn cute DJ boy I always seem to get myself into trouble with. It was an evening that ultimately ended with me in my fabulous new shoes at home, clutching the porcelain bowl and begging for purgative relief. Jen sat with me on the cold, hard floor of the bathroom, cocktail in one hand, cigarette in the other, coaxing me into action. “What would Steve McQueen do?” she asked, pointing at the large movie still poster of the Great Escape over the toilet. Jen, Sonja and I went out on Monday night, which means all the juiciest details of our escapades will be left out to protect the guilty. So really, all you need to know is that we went to the Hard Rock Café in Lahaina to say happy birthday to Marty Dread, my sometime schoolgirl crush. After I was told by some dude to “not write about me in your column” for like, the umpteenth time—come on, people, I have more important things to write about, like how laser eye surgery smells like burnt hair—Jen and Sonja downed no less than three Mind Erasers each, which meant I was deemed designated driver for the evening. We went to the Sly Mongoose after that, where Jen berated me for drinking way more than she should and Sonja explained to me in gory, Clockwork Orange-esque detail about the metal clamps, eye flaps and cornea shavings of her Lasik experience. As the daytime soap General Hospital played on the bar TV screen at 1 a.m., we discussed our own soap operas in real life and the possibilities of televising and/or web-camming the goings-on of the Sugar Shack. “Hell, my life is just like one of those reality shows with 20 contestants,” said Sonja. “Only it’s just me!” MTW
