Jackson received a achievement award Saturday from the mayor of Kaohsiung, Taiwan's second-largest city, where Jackson was to perform Sunday night. As the meeting was concluding, city council members Huang Chao- hsing and Lin Ti-chuan burst into the room and demanded to know what Jackson's qualifications were for receiving the award. Huang kicked over a tea table in front of Jackson, prompting the surprised pop star to ask, "Is that guy all right?" the Kaohsiung-based Commons Daily news^ paper reported. Told that the award to Jackson was in recognition of his international contribution, Lin replied: "His international con T tribution has been to molest little boys." Senator a closet songwriter SALT LAKE CITY — Behind his tight' lipped, buttoned-down facade, Orrin Hatch is a troubadour. The Republican senator has written more than 100 songs during the past year: He writes gospel songsj hymns and country tunes. • He wrote wife Elaine a love ballad called "All Because of You," and recorded it for their 39th wedding anniversary. • "I occasionally write in the middle of boring hearings. I write on air- HATCH planes. Sometimes I write in church," Hatch said. "It's a way of getting away from it all. It's nice to have something that's not related to politics." Solano: 'I had a breakdown' LOS ANGELES — Jose Solano is on top of the world as the new hunk on "Bay- watch." Not long ago, however, he wag mired in despair. "I had a breakdown. The outgoing, persevering person that I am wasn't ther§ anymore. I became very depressed," Solano, 25, told the syndicated program "American Journal" in an interview for broadcast today. Those dark days grew out of the death of his best friend in a helicopter crash while they were serving in the Middle East. He was*also emotionally scarred from his job as a Navy corpsman prepar ? ing bodies for shipment home during the Persian Gulf War, he said.

Ann admits underestimating birds' intelligence Dear Readers: When I said most people think of pigeons as rather ordinary birds who mess up statues in the park, bird lovers from everywhere let me know I had greatly underestimated the intelligence of our feathered friends. Here's what my mail has been like this week: Dear Ann Landers: Obviously, you don't know a thing about birds. First, you were "amazed" when a reader wrote that her parakeet had to be put in the closet whenever she undressed. It ^ seems the sight of her unclothed body turned the bird on and he screeched relentlessly. And now, you're belittling pigeons. Perhaps you have been misled by the assignation "birdbrain." Here is my story: ANN LANDERS Creators Syndicate Inc. I purchased a parrot several years ago, and the bird was a master of obscene language. "Billy's" previous owner was a saloon keeper. Several bar regulars thought it was fun to teach Billy vulgar phrases in three languages. This made a huge hit with the customers but proved to be an embarrassment when> some of my straight-laced friends came to call. I finally had to pay the saloon keeper to take Billy back, but I confess, I still miss him. — N.Y.C. Dear N.Y.C.: My apologies to all bird lovers for any disparaging comments I made about our feathered friends. Once again, the readers have educated me. Please keep reading, and you will see what I mean: Dear Ann: I once owned two parakeets. The birds hated being caged, so I let them have the run of the place. One evening when I came home from work, one of the parakeets was screeching wildly. The male was lying dead on the living room floor, TV TONIGHT and the female was circling his body. When I tried to catch the grieving bird, she refused to come to me as she had always done. Instead, she flew into the bathroom, jumped into the toilet and drowned. — Bill Fleishman in Van Nuys, Calif. Dear Bill: My heartfelt condolences. Please keep reading for more bird lore: Dear Ann: I once had a cockatiel named "Sunday." He would follow me around the house like a pet dog. If I was watching TV and not paying enough attention to him, he would peck at my earring or my hair. Sunday was the only "man" in my life until I met my husband. When Mr. B. entered the room, Sunday would peck at his neck to let him know he was an intruder. My husband did not appreciate this, but after a while, he began to see the humor in it. Our dear Sunday is no longer with us, and we both miss him. — Patricia Kelly- Bass in Union City, Calif. Dear Patricia: What a charming bird story. Thank you for more evidence that birds are a lot more like people than I thought. Here's another one. Dear Ann: The letter about the love life of pigeons brought back some fond memories. My mother and I raised a male sparrow. When I found him, he had fallen out of his nest and didn't have a feather td his name. "Birdie" fixed on me as his mama but developed romantic intentions toward my mother. Each da^ during mating sea : son, he would spread his tail, drop hi? wings, puff his chest, cluck and do a square dance in the palm of my mother's hand. "Birdie" lived in a plastic clothes basket, traveled across the United States every summer by car and could mimic al 1 most any sound'including my dog's barki He lived to be 12 years old. — Debra Wiley in Inglewood, Calif.
