However, they have communicated indirectly. In her book Surrender the Pink, Fisher has a Simonlike playwright named Rudy, and in his new album, The Rhythm of Saints, Simon includes a song called She Moves On, in which a man succumbs to a woman's spell and pays the price. Step on it In his memoir, An American Life, former President Ronald Reagan recalls an elegant White House dinner honoring French President Francois Mitterrand. When Reagan prepared to escort the French first lady, Danielle Mitterrand, past the standing audience to their table, she suddenly froze and wouldn't move. She said something to him in French, which he couldn't understand. She repeated it. He shook his head. An interpreter then stepped alongside and said, "She's telling you that you're standing on her gown." Look who's talking "The decision by the Cincin nati jury on the Mapplethorpe exhibit was phenomenal! After all, I consider the Mapplethorpe picture one man urinating into the mouth of another (to be) merely a depiction of Ronald Reagan's trickle-down theory," so says actor Ed Asner, according to TV etc. Bush's little buddy Vice President Dan Quayle has refused an honorary membership in the Gilligan's Island Fan club, citing bothersome "ethical constraints." Author Joey Green, who wrote The Unofficial Gilligan's Island Handbook, observed: "Gilligan may have ruined almost every chance the castaways had of being rescued, but he was still the skipper's little buddy. I'm sure President Bush looks upon Dan Quayle in much the same way." Have you heard . . . ? More than 400 people crowded into the First Presbyterian Church of Lexington, Ky., Sunday to hear the Rev.

The theologian, Professor Willie Jonker, who is also an ordained minister in the Dutch Reformed Church, said the church must acknowledge responsibility for the sufferings that apartheid had inflicted on the country's black majority. The five-day conference, which attracted 85 black and white denominations, the most to Kidnapping of American investigated Communist rebels take man in Philippines Reuters MANILA, Philippines Communist rebels fleeing a gunbattle with the army kidnapped an American in the northern Philippines, military officials said Tuesday. They said the man, identified as Harvey Brown from California, was taken from a jeepney, or minibus, in Aparri, Cagayan, 250 miles north of Manila, Oct. 24 during a nationwide transportation strike called by leftist unions. State Department spokesman Richard Boucher said the U.S. Embassy in Manila was informed of a kidnapping Oct. 19 and had dispatched an officer to investigate. Earlier Tuesday, Philippine military officials said the negotiators were reportedly assassination targets of Communist hit squads operating in the capital. "We believe he was taken by the NPA (New People's Army)," U.S. Embassy spokesman Stanley Schrager said. assemble together in South Africa, was convened to work out guidelines acceptable to all Christians in a changing South Africa. Seventy-eight percent of all South Africans call themselves Christians. Jonker had been invited to speak on "understanding the church situation and obstacles to Christian witness in South Africa." But when he was into the fourth page of his prepared speech, the professor of systematic theology pulled out another piece of paper on which he had scribbled his confession by hand. It said: "I confess before you and before the Lord not only my own sin and guilt, and my personal responsibility for the political, social, economical and structural wrongs that have been done to many of you and the results of . which you and our whole community are still suffering from, but vicariously I have also to do that in the name of the NGK (Nederduitse Gereformeerde Kirk) of which I am a member, and for the Afrikaner people as a whole." Anglican archbishop Desmond Tutu unexpectedly responded to the confession. "When that confession is made, then those of us who have been wronged must say, 'We forgive you,' and together we must move to the reconstruction of our land." The audience of more than 200 delegates and observers, visibly moved by the words of both churchmen, sprang to their feet and applauded. - A fwr JAiP Vi- .: THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Residents rally in Miami against the Dade County school system, the nation's fourth-largest. Black boycott immobilizes Dade schools Correction Because of an editing error, The Palm Beach Post Tuesday incorrectly identified the woman photographed with shooting suspect Larry Jackson. The woman is Jackson's grandmother, Carol Clemons. By JOHN FERNANDEZ Palm Beach Post Staff Writer MIAMI A school boycott organized by black leaders paralyzed Dade County schools Tuesday as 30 percent of the students, 15 percent of the teachers and 72 percent of the bus drivers stayed home. The boycott of the nation's fourth-largest school system, in which blacks account for one-third of the students, was prompted by last month's appointment of Octavio Visiedo, a Cuban-American with seven years of administrative experience, as superintendent. Black leaders had supported Tee S. Greer, a 31-year black administrator who had been interim superintendent. They said Greer not only had more experience, but unlike Visiedo, he has a doctorate. Former superintendent Paul Bell, who died Oct. 16 of heart failure, had recommended Greer as his replacement. School officials said more than 700 buses were grounded because of the boycotting drivers, forcing parents to make special arrangements for students who attended classes. About 2,500 teachers also skipped school, and student attendance, normally 90 . percent to 93 percent, was 70 percent overall. Many predominantly black schools had 20 percent to 30 percent attendance. Schools would return to normal today, black leaders said, but there likely will be future boycotts. ; "If things do not change, we will stay out as long as it takes," said the Rev. Victor Curry, a boycott organizer. "The message has been sent: Our people are ready to sacrifice to bring about change for our children." Some churches in black neighborhoods held special classes for children whose parents kept them out of school Tuesday. Their lessons included discussions . about the boycott, racism and the civil rights movement. Dade school board members Oct. 24 unanimously , selected Visiedo as schools chief, saying he has the ; right "style" to take the school system into the 21st century. They have refused demands from blacks to replace Visiedo with Greer.
