Just wanted to share the contents of an email I received. I cannot vouch for the validity of the reference to "Reader's Digest or the newspaper:

Wise Old Indian:

A few years ago someone browsing through the 40th
Anniversary Issue of Reader's Digest (dated Feb. 1962) came across this
reprint from the Washington News and found it quite interesting in light
of our current border debates.

The quote reads: Vice President Lyndon Johnson received the following
Message from a Native American Indian Chief on a reservation: "Be
careful with your immigration laws. We were careless with ours. "

Native American Observation:

Recently an old Indian chief sat in his hut on
a reservation, smoking a Ceremonial pipe, and eyeing two U. S.
Government officials sent by the President to interview him. "Chief Two Eagles" asked one official, "You have observed the white man for 90 years.
You've seen his wars and his technological advances. You've seen his
progress, and the damage he's done." The Chief nodded in agreement. The
official continued, "Considering all these events, in your opinion, where did the white man go? 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 all work,
Medicine man free, Indian man spent all day hunting and fishing, all
night having sex." Then the chief leaned back and smiled. "Only white
man dumb enough to think he could improve system like that."


GOD BLESS AMERICA

Here's another email I received:

George Carlin's Solution to Save Gasoline

That's FUNNY! (And just enough truth to be scary! *LOL*)
