Another connection to Abramoff?
Continuing her investigation into attempts by the Republicans in Congress to pass a bill absolving the government of its court-ordered obligations to the Indian Trust, Mary Beth Williams thinks she's found a link to Jack Abramoff in testimony by Stephen Griles to the House Appropriations Committee. Check it out, and remember that you can keep up with all of her sleuthing in her Abramoff and the Injuns archive.

Do the professional sensitives allow that term to be used these days?
I'm guessing it wouldn't pass muster with the NCAA, but I guess it's okay with progressives? ;)
Since you're apparently unfamiliar with MB's blog Wampum, I'll point out that its tagline is "Progressive Politics, Indian Issues, and Autism Advocacy", and that both MB and her husband Eric are Indians and activists within their community. I'm just guessing here, but I think they're using the term "Injuns" ironically. Feel free to ask them yourself, however.
