If 'The Native Blog' dealt in gossip heard through the Ojibwe and Potawatomi grapevines, I'd have a hot site like gawker.com. Take for example a week and half ago I heard Vernon Bellecourt just came back from Venezuela, then had problems breathing and had to go into the hospital...they then said it didn't look good for him. Another time a story came out here in Minnesota and I heard through the Ojibwe grapevine some rumor about it, I posted the story on my blog and then someone like from across the country ACTUALLY left a comment on the blog entry along the same lines as the rumor I heard. That could turn out to be true too!
It is the same with the Potawatomi grapevine a lot of the things I hear through that: ACTUALLY turn out to be true! Maybe I should pay people to send me what they have heard! Ha Ha!
And meanwhile in the traditional mainstream news media:the new Prairie Band Potawatomi Chairperson, Steve Ortiz, is gonna be sworn in today at nine o'clock. Mac McIntyre, the Editor of the Dekalb County newspaper has a must read article in his paper today called It is time to end the what ifs and could bes surrounding the Prairie Band Potawatomi land claim.
And then finally my son Larry turns 25 today. We are going to have ice cream and cake tonight...!
