Jacksonville Journal Courier (Newspaper) - April 10, 1990, Jacksonville, Illinois Journal wound a Jan Aonuma im., Luaa Oay april Ioimo Barry needs a hand with his reasoning journal Courter photo by John 0. Mamun Jacksonville elks Lodge no. 682 continued their tradition of providing an easter Bunny who visited is is i Graham and pathway schools Friday. Shown from left As he left the Lodge Jack Barwick exalted ruler Gary Church Volunteer the Bunny Melanie Gotschall and Jordy Gotschall. The annual promotion will continue next week As the Bunny visits All of the nursing Homes in Jacksonville. A standing ovation is an Honor that is bestowed for a wide variety of reasons. At sporting events fans Rise to cheer dramatic game winning Home runs last second touchdowns or slam dunks. A stirring performance will bring an opera or concert crowd to its feet. Past achievements can do it too. The introduction of an aging War hero an elder statesman a Nobel laureate can touch the heart. So can the modest appearance of a Lech Walesa. Of course at any corporate or political banquet the top Boss will get a standing ovation because its a Way for some of his underlings to say a they look see me big Guy i love Admire and respect you. I Grovel so please keep that paycheck but in a not quite sure what prompted 400 people at a meeting of Black mayors to spontaneously leap to their feet to applaud the arrival of mayor Marion Barry of Washington. Particularly since it was an anti drug meeting. Some might say that the crowd was expressing admiration for the Way Barry has confronted his addictions and is trying to overcome them. The problem there is that Barry did t confront his addictions until he walked into an Fri sting operation and a As was recorded on videotape a made a cocaine buy from an old Girlfriend. Only then did he go scurrying off to the seclusion of a rehab Center which is Standard procedure for prominent substance abusers. That plus saying they be been religiously reborn which Barry Hasni to see me Mike Royko gotten to yet. But until the Fri nailed him in that hotel room. Barry Wasny to doing any confronting or overcoming of his addictions. The Only confronting he did was with those who mentioned the frequent rumours that he was using drugs and associating with Scuzzy characters. He denounced them As liars. Now As it turns out. They weren to lying. He was. But he has t found it in his heart to apologize. If anything he still seems to be fudging on the truth. He says his addictions were booze and Tranquili Zers. So what was he doing making a Coke buy he Hasni to said. Maybe he was just doing some very Early Christmas shopping after enjoying his ovation Barry listened to Jesse Jackson lambaste the Bush administration for failing to spend enough Money in the War on drugs. Later Barry held a press conference and said essentially the same thing. And he criticized Federal officials for not working closely with his administration in dealing with the drug crisis in the nation s capital. Now fancy that. Here is the mayor of one of the great cities of the world he faces trial on three drug charges and two of lying to a grand jury. But he does no to understand Why Federal drug officials Haven t sat Down with him to talk about How they can solve the problems of his City. Apparently it has t occurred to him a or if it has he prefers not to think about it that he a part of the problem not the solution. The real problem is not the inability of the government to prevent foreign drugs from coming into this country. That s just about impossible and even if they were stopped our own drug merchants would Start producing Domestic brands As they be done with the new super Jolt marijuana nor is the real problem the local drug Pusher. If there is Money to be made and a demand for a product somebody is going to provide the Supply. If you jail one crack dealer two More Are going to fight Over his old Corner. No what it boils Down to is that those who want drugs create the problem they Are the problem. And they include mayor Barry. So it does seem a bit unseemly for him to be complaining that not enough taxpayers Money is being spent to prevent people from Messing up their brains after All it s his brain. If he wants to scramble it i Don t see Why the rest of us should be held financially responsible and i done to see that he a done anything to rate a standing ovation. A quiet a Good Luck Marion a would have been More than enough. Most people never experience a standing ovation even those who might deserve them a fireman carries someone Down three smoke filled flights of stairs and his prize is a whiff from an oxygen tank. A cop talks a heavily armed crazy into releasing some hostages and his Captain slips a citation into his personnel file. An emergency room Crew brings someone Back to life and their Reward is that they get a Chance to do it again tomorrow night. But Barry gets a standing ovation. You d think that they would at least have asked him to pass a urine test first.
