THE MERCHANTS OF VENICE

First Jimmy Carter’s logistical wizards requested details for a presidential motorcade—through downtown Venice. Once on the scene, in the serene city of canals, they spurned a Venetian offer of a motorized launch, insulting untold legions of steady gondoliers.

When the girls on the fashion page slip into mohair bras and black garbage-bag dresses, don’t panic—The Clichettes (Louise Garfield, Janice Hladki and Johanna Householder) must be in town. The basse-couture triumvirate dons wigs, bikinis and wraparound boats in their satirical revue, Half Human, Half Heartache, which is about to start a back-by-popular-demand summer season at a downtown Toronto country-and-western bar with cultural pretensions.

Q&A: Muhammad Ali

Heavyweight in a larger ring

Actor, ambassador, philosopher, threetime heavyweight boxing champion of the world, Muhammad Ali is probably the most famous man on earth. Now, at 38, he is in training to come out of retirement and fight again. Against the odds and the opinions of neurosurgeons that he has already suffered brain damage and risks more, Ali dreams of defeating World Boxing Council champion Larry Holmes for an $8-million payday in a fight tentatively planned for August.

"Ahh, I can’t stand it. This is the pits.” If watching the 71st Canadian Open from a wife’s perspective is agonizing, then from Jim Nelford’s it was excruciating. Margie was standing in the right rough on the 15th hole at the Royal Montreal Golf Club on the tournament’s final afternoon.

The Buckley stops here

His father did not have to put up with any of this. When William F. Buckley Sr., a Texas lawyer turned oil wildcatter, made his millions in the first half of the century, regulators left well enough alone, shareholders—if not always complimentary—at least knew their place and governments were, in general, accommodating.

I think your reviewer misinterpreted Bob Dylan’s current album, Slow Train Coming, and his recent concert tour, as have several other critics ( The Gospel According to Dylan, Music, May 12). The general temper of your article would appear to elicit the comment, “Look how Dylan has changed.”

Question: does (or can) the individual Joe Citizen matter in today’s sea of apathy? Apathy is indifference. Apathy is convictionless opinion. Apathy is vacancy. Still, the individual must matter or the game is over. I believe the individual and the strength of the individual in our system of free thought and free speech is our only real hope for initiating positive change in present government policy regarding human rights, the environment and the critical issue of nuclear energy.

Human pawns in a power game

The conflict over the future of Cambodia (Kampuchea) last week lurched one stage further toward an open confrontation. The chances that the clash over the control of that pitiable country could be settled by compromise were always small.

The gentlemen pick their weapons

London had seen nothing like it since the great Ban-the-Bomb marches of the early 1960s. In a suitably apocalyptic thunderstorm and led by the Labor party’s deputy leader, Michael Foot, looking like some Old Testament prophet with his haggard face and long white hair, 15,000 Britons were galvanized into protest last week by the Thatcher government’s agreement to install 160 U.S. Cruise missiles at two peaceful villages deep in the English countryside.
