Short, tragic and to the point — cigarettes kill Dear Ann Landers: I am heartbroken and inconsolable. My beautiful wife and the mother of our four young children died yes- $ terday. She killed herself. Did she use a gun? A noose? Pills? A knife? No. It was cigarettes. — Grieving in New York Dear New York: My heartfelt condolences. No comment from me is necessary. Your letter said it all. ANN LANDERS Creators Syndicate Inc. Dear Ann Landers: I read your column every day in Newsday. You have printed several letters about unusual judicial decisions, and I would like to submit the following amazing example. In 1963 and '64, I was administering a Peace Corps project in Northern Somalia, a semi-desert area where camels were extremely important to the people. One day, a Somali employee who was driving a Peace Corps jeep struck a young Somali man and broke the poor fellow's leg. Under Somali law, the owner of the vehicle was legally responsible, so the victim sued the Peace Corps for damages. The judge ruled in favor of the victim and decreed that the Peace Corps pay the victim 80 camels. Since we had no camels, the victim agreed to take money instead. The problem: How much is a camel worth? None of us had anticipated that hurdle, but we were perfectly willing to pay the price of 80 old, broken-down male camels, figuring it would not be very much. The victim, however, had other ideas. He insisted on the price of 80 young, healthy, pregnant female camels. The negotiations dragged on for several weeks, and finally, we settled on $10 per camel, which would give the victim $800. TV TONIGHT This was a very large sum of money in Somalia at that time. That settlement was much greater than any Somali would have been forced to pay, and we knew it, but we were helpless. Of course, because of that huge overpayment, we became the laughingstock of Northern Somalia, and the transaction was thereafter referred to as "American compensation." — George in Wantagh, N.Y. Dear George: It was a good move, in my opinion. Better to have overpaid and been laughed at than to have cheaped out and damaged the image of our great country, which has always been one of generosity. Consider the overpayment your contribution to protecting that image of America. Dear Ann Landers: I read this in Curmudgeon's Corner and thought it was hilarious. It is supposed to be a cross-examination of a doctor. I hope you will print it in your column. Your readers can always use a good laugh. No name, please, just sign this letter — Your North Shore'.! Neighbor u : >'^ Dear Neighbor: I, too, think it is very funny and am printing it at the risk of an-V tagonizing all my friends and relatives in 1 ' • the legal profession. Here it is: Q: "Doctor, before you performed the'.. autopsy, did you check for a pulse?" i;; • :,' A: "No." •.:.",•; Q: "Did you check for blood pressure?." A: "No." :.<v< Q: "Did you check for breathing?" ;>•,; -i A: "No." .:•.••; Q: "So then it is possible the patient . was alive when you began the autopsy?'/' i A: "No." :-;.,.: Q: "How can you be so sure, doctor?"; >.. A: "Because his brain was sitting on;.' my desk in a jar." Q: "But could the patient still hav,B\, been alive nevertheless?" A: "It is possible that he could ha'CT* been alive and practicing law where." «!:' 5/18/98 9PBS, Bunker Hill-Hays UNBC, Wichita 9 FOX, WIchlta-Sallna E|CBS, Topeka ^Access 6, Salina jj|FOX, Kansas City [SPPBS, Wlchlta-Hutchlnson 9 ABC, Kansas City HjfABC, Wichita L^JCBS, Wichita [gJNBC, Kansas City fEH-ncore OpirrBS f cinemax Starzl @JHBO EH Discovery 3J CNN f f/x Amer.
