Wrfiterfella here --
One wonders what the lady expected to find, a child's garden about Natives being displaced and slaughtered, and their survivors relegated to the farthest reaches of this nation's places and thoughts and consciousness? When GW was Governor of Texas, he declared that there would be no Indian casinoes in 'his' Texas, "'cause them Injuns have had a free ride long enough!" One wonders if he thought 'The Trail of Tears' was an attraction over at Six Flags?
Luckily or unluckily, GW's duck now is so lame (like its owner) that the matter never will come up in the NCLB initiatives and programs, over in the Nobody Cares Less Bureau.
All Best
