Negotiations Edition

Labor Day has the CW in the mood for productive negotiations--but the world isn't always obliging. If the IRA and the PLO can make peace, why can't the baseball owners?


Players                 Conventional Wisdom            





Cuba         +/-        U.S. policy about as effective as an 


                        exploding cigar. CW sez: send 'em back.





Haiti         -         Would cost half a billion, minimum, to    


                        invade. Where's the CIA when you need it?





N. Korea     +/-        Film-loving Kim won't talk to South. Forget





                        Carter: send Warren Beatty as envoy.





N. Ireland    +         Ceasefire puts bombmakers in the red, pub 


                        keepers in the black. Pass the stout.





Baseball      -         Season's over and so is your hold on      


                        America. Say it ain't so, greedheads.





Traffic       -         Talk about a tough thing to negotiate! 


                        Monday night on the expressway: now that's 


                        gridlock!
