And, from the peanut gallery: Has anyone considered what this country might be if the Indian (no apology for not saying Native American) had not been driven into reservations? Or subjugated?

It is not a pleasant thing to contemplate that we'd still have huge herds of buffalo roaming the range with tribes of aborigines still roaming the central plains.

What they were is nice to think about. What they have been reduced to is not so nice to think about. And I speak here only about the Plains Indians. But I don't see an alternative. If anyone has one, I'd be glad to consider it.
