How to Write the Great American Indian Novel

Sherman Alexie

All of the Indians must have tragic features: tragic noses, eyes, and arms.
Their hands and fingers must be tragic when they reach for tragic food.

The hero must be a half-breed, half white and half Indian, preferably
from a horse culture. He should often weep alone. That is mandatory.

and in love with a white man. But if she loves an Indian man

then he must be a half-breed, preferably from a horse culture.

The Great Society Meets Fiscal Reality

The Great Society Meets Fiscal Reality

Someone wise in matters of politics once said that programs for the poor are poor programs.  It remains true today – initiatives aimed at helping the most vulnerable in our society, be they privately or publicly funded, seem to be perpetually starved for funds.  And so the genius of those who created the Social Security system – originally aimed at older Americans whose assets were devastated by the Great Depression in 1935 – was to make the program available to all, regardless of income.
