Regarding your article on the economic development
plans of the Hualapai Tribe (HCN, 2/20/06: Tribe brings on the
tourists): Let me get this straight. You bring a bunch of porcine
asses out from Las Vegas in air-conditioned, global-warming
Hummer-Dummers to have lunch at a place called "Guano Point," and
then charge them $25 to use a giant toilet seat cantilevered out
over your own tribal land so they can defecate all over it with
helicopters and jet boats and tramways and run around with cartoon
Indians and cowboys roping straw-bale cows.
there’s some employment here, but how is this supposed to
overcome poverty of spirit, addiction, and hopelessness?
