The (Native) American Dream

If you saw this woman walking down the street would you think:

a) She is a model.

b) She is a teacher.

c) She is a sales clerk.

d) She is former $60,000/day-making drug dealer.

If you chose "d" then you are absolutely right. Today's NY Times contains a feature on this woman, Eugenia Phair, who is a Native American of the Lummi tribe in Washington and a former high-level drug trafficker. Take a few minutes and read the article on her life both pre, during, and post-drug trafficking. Any reactions?

Having both Native American and black family members and friends, I thought any of the above, ie, "E".

But more to the point, I gave up reading the NYTimes in order to stay better informed about the world around me.

Point taken on the choice "E". I should have included that.

What do you mean by you giving up reading the NY Times? I don't understand what you're saying.

slugger... duuuuude. the NYT is so frikkin in bed with the bushies and neocons it's not funny. they let judith miller publish Chalabi's BS about Iraq, they withheld info on illegal wiretaps at Bush's request, the list goes on and i could share some juicy inside stuff if you want as well. also, why have you given up on the 9-11 issue? We see 20 posts about Larry's underwear problems, 30 about mohammed cartoons, and 76 stories promoting this blog. how about just one more post, maybe on Scholars for 9-11 Truth? This time you'll have the cavalry to back you up. Your call--this commons blog is still alive right? Or is everyone really going to follow the Pied Piper into the land of wire--I mean Campus Tap?
