    Three strangers strike up a conversation in the airport passenger lounge
    in Bozeman, Montana, awaiting their flights.

    One is an American Indian passing through from Lame Deer.
    Another is a Cowboy on his way to Billings for a livestock show
    And the third passenger is a fundamentalist Arab student, newly arrived at
    Montana State University from the Middle East.

    Their discussion drifts to their diverse cultures. Soon, the two
    Westerners learn that the Arab is a devout, radical Muslim and the
    conversation falls into an uneasy lull.

    Finally, the American Indian clears his throat and softly he speaks, At
    one time here, my people were many, but sadly, now we are few."

    The Muslim student 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 Montana cowboy shifts his toothpick to one side of his mouth and from
    the darkness beneath his Stetson says in a drawl:
    "That's 'cause we ain't played Cowboys and Muslims yet, but I do believe
    it's a-comin'."
