    Warren is claiming Cherokee blood. Why Cherokee? Why is it that everybody who wants to be an Indian wants to be Cherokee?

    This is the thing that gets me. I live in NM with Indian Pueblos and reservations in every direction. When I'm unfortunate enough to run into tourists and they start talking about the various tribes here, at least 1 in 4 says they have Cherokee blood. I've yet to have anyone claim Apache or Comanche, Ute or Cheyenne blood.

    Had she said she was part Kiowa or Shoshone, maybe she'd have got away with it.

    They're the guys that killed old Bill Williams in I think 1849.

    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    Yep, or this

    for the Southern Utes. And for any PC types who see either link (there are some here), note that they call themselves Indians, not Native Americans.

    Could be because the Cherokees were a tad more peaceful, the PC of the tribes. I guess not a bunch want to say they're Apaches or Comanches, who had a reputation for fierceness.

    rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    One of the funniest movies ever made. I never thought anybody could steal a scene from Joe Pesci, but Marisa Tomei did it every single time.

    And, I missed the joke too, and we've got the movie and watch it at least once a month. It's as funny now as the first time.
