Finished rereading Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee today. As sad in its way as was Rachel Carson's Silent Spring. In fact, the two books aren't all that dissimilar; both relate aspects of white man's destruction of everything he can't understand. But Dee Brown's book has more usability for strategists preparing for immanent war with the U.S. government. And drove home the disadvantage of not believing in land ownership when surrounded by people who do.

Lightning on all sides tonight. I was up on the roof eating a rice dinner and watching it. Not a drop of rain here, yet, though.
