    Montanan Mixed Race

    And So Are the Australians

    As indicated by the amount and number of reparations and apologies the government is offering.  The U.S., whose treatment of its own aboriginals is parallel, should be paying attention. In both countries, what I think disgusts me most is the attempt to beat their "...
