This letter says it like it is. Thank you Diane Higgins.
What an important and painful tale, thank you Lynette, for the excellent research and telling of this story. It's critical that people here know this history and understand the brutality of the mindset of the whites who came here. There is no indication in this story that any of them thought of the fact that the Native residents were here first. There seems simply to have been a belief that they were entitled to take what they wanted any way in which they wanted to do so. A very ugly history this country has, very ugly.
Lynette, I hope you will turn your research, including this story, into a book.
Ellen, I am at the edge of tears. I've read much of your writings of the last decades and have always admired it but this time you've broken all records. This incredible, beautiful sentence is only a small example "They wended their way through the topography of the century, samurais for social justice." of the excellence and emotive strength of your wordsmithing. Kudos on a wonderful and important piece of work. I hope everyone will be cutting this article out and posting it and re-reading. Thank you.
Todd Heiler, not for the first time I'm impressed by a letter of yours. This one is most excellent and right on the button. Thank you for writing it. I think it would be great if you published an expanded version as a My Word in the T-S. Thanks again, Sylvia De Rooy
Amy Gustin, this is so excellent an article and so well written, I am in awe. Thank you, you've hit the salient points and I so appreciate.
Do I remember correctly that the Balloon Tract has hazardous waste in the soil so people camping there would be camping on hazardous wastes?
I wonder if the students in the Journalism Department are taught to proof read their work before submitting it for publication? Ms. Burstiner clearly did not do so with this weeks Media Maven submission.
