    The old Cherokee chief sat in his reservation hut, smoking
    the ceremonial pipe, eyeing the two US government officials
    sent to interview him.

    "Chief Two Eagles," one official began, "you have observed
    the white man for many generations, you have seen his wars
    and his products, you have seen all his progress, and all
    his problems."

    The chief nodded. The official continued, "Considering
    recent events, in your opinion, where has the white man
    gone wrong?"

    The chief stared at the government officials for over a
    minute, and then calmly replied.

    "When white man found the land, Indians were running it.

    * No taxes.

    * No debt.

    * Plenty buffalo

    * Plenty beaver

    * Women did the work

    * Medicine man free

    * Indian men hunted and fished all the time..."

    The chief smiled, and added quietly, "White man dumb enough
    to think he could improve system like that."
