Re: We Pass Into April As If Into A Colder Month

News Gal, I do have native heritage. My mother is Anishnabek. I don't take much offence to Geoffrey. After reading many of his posts over the years especially in the politics thread he really has shown he hasn't much to say worth hearing - for me anyway. He can keep on blah-blahing all he wants. I'...

New Book About Káteri Tekahkwí:tha

There's a new book out about Káteri Tekahkwí:tha that I thought readers may enjoy:

BTW, the Mohawk are the closest ethnic relatives of the Cherokee, and our languages are very similar.

Re: We Pass Into April As If Into A Colder Month

I'll try to give things another chance, but I'll be very wary from now on of many people. Cate, what you call a generalization is part of the techniques I was taught in intercultural communication classes. Certain modes of thought DO mark a culture as a whole, and that recognizes some deviation from...

It's pretty obvious I'm not welcome here. If you want to have a cheap laugh at my expense, fine. I won't be here to see it. Thanks for driving away another poster.

Re: Removal of the Politics Category

Oh, I know what you mean regarding attacks, News Gal. I've been through a few ad hominem/ad feminem attacks myself. Attacked a few times myself, though, perhaps not in those categories. For me, though, it seems that Leonard's reputation is well known enough... that those of his supporters don't ris...

Re: Removal of the Politics Category

A germane 'problem' that I see in your complaint and suggestion is that you, News Gal, not so long ago expressed your abhorrence of censorship. Some of Leonard's books, poems, and songs support that he favours lack of censorship, as well. Sure can't say with certainty, but it seems Leonard has had ...
