    Three strangers at the Great Falls airport are awaiting their flights.
    One is a Native American on his way to Helena for a statewide Indian Pow-Wow.

    Another a ranch hand on his way to Billings Montana for a stock show.

    The third passenger is a fundamentalist Arab student, newly arrived, and on his way to study engineering at Montana Tech.

    To pass the time they strike up a conversation on recent events, and the discussion drifts to their diverse cultures.

    Soon the westerners learn that the Arab is a devout radical Muslim, and believes his people are justified in their 'holy' war.

    The conversation falls into an uneasy lull. The cowpoke leans back in his chair, crosses his boots on a magazine table and tips his big sweat-stained hat forward over his face.

    The wind outside blows and blows and the old windsock flaps but no plane comes.

    Finally, the Native American clears his throat and softly he speaks:" Once, my people were many, now we are few."

    The radical Muslim raises an eyebrow and leans forward, "Once my people were few," he sneers, "and now we are many. Why do you suppose that is?"

    The Cowboy shifts the toothpick to one side of his mouth and from the darkness beneath his Stetson Cowboy Hat says, "That's 'cause we ain't played Cowboys and Muslims yet boy."
