Hualapai horror

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.

Maybe there’s some employment here, but how is this supposed to overcome poverty of spirit, addiction, and hopelessness?
