Indians Not Happy, But Why?
The Karuks up on the Klamath aren't happy with the investigation into the burning down of their sacred dance house last month. Didn't I read somewhere that this isn't the first time the dance house was burned down, or am I mixing that up with some other incident?
Nonetheless, they're not happy and they want action. State Assemblybabe Patty Berg comes to the rescue, asking the FBI to enter the case. Now why would she go to all that trouble over a simple arson?
The Sacramento Bee's, Dan Walters, offers a clue in this commentary on, not only the growing power of the indian tribes because of their casinos, but the fact that tribes are beginning to enjoy the best of both worlds, something ordinary governments don't: The ability to act as both a government and a business.
As we've already seen, I don't think any of my friends from the Left will be complaining about tribal political donations.
