Rumblings on the Reservation

Things are hopping here on the Lac du Flambeau Reservation. http://www.waow.com/News/index.php?ID=23000

Police, emergency vehicles, and TV crews currently outnumber the total population of our little town. Our house is about 6-700 yards as the crow flies from all the excitement. I can walk out on my dock and see the casino across the bay.

This is an intra-tribal political fracas. And for those of you who are native or have relatives or friends, it comes as little surprise when tribal politics gets a little heated. Just hope nobody gets hurt.

It's a damned shame that we can't do that in D.C. without getting killed or other people being killed.

Update: By mid afternoon negotiations were completed and a peaceful agreement was reached. The Bureau of Indian Affairs has agreed to do an immediate audit of the tribal records and those occupying the tribal headquarters left peacefully...with some being arrested and taken to the county jail.

Interesting little side note to tie this in with hot rodding. One of the take-over leaders is my neighbor, Tom, who has been working to get me the London Taxi discussed in this thread



The taxi was basically abandoned in one of the storage facilities Tom owns. The big hold up at this point is getting clear title...which has turned out to be a bit more challenging than he originally anticipated.

Oh well, I have enough projects to keep me going until this one falls in place.
