Forced to consider an unwanted audience and censor in the face of it. Appropriation of Native peoples’ spiritual practices does real harm.
In the Great American Indian novel, when it is finally written,
All the white people will be Indians and all the Indians will be ghosts.
-Sherman Alexie, "How to Write the Great American Indian Novel"
(in The Inconvenient Indian: A Curious Account of Native People in North America by Thomas King)
Buffalo Bill opens a pawn shop on the reservation
right across the border from the liquor store
and he stays open 24 hours a day,7 days a week
and the Indians come running in with jewelry
television sets, a VCR, a full-lenght beaded buckskin outfit
it took Inez Muse 12 years to finish. Buffalo Bill
takes everything the Indians have to offer, keeps it
all catalogues and filed in a storage room. The Indians
pawn their hands, saving the thumbs for last, they pawn
their skeletons, falling endlessly from the skin
and when the last Indian has pawned everything
but his heart, Buffalo Bill takes that for twenty bucks
closes up the pawn shop, paints a new sign over the old
calls his venture THE MUSEUM OF NATIVE AMERICAN CULTURES
charges the Indians five bucks a head to enter.

Today, two guys on the bus questioned my cat cred. It was totally bizarre.
Guy#1: Nice cat shirt.
Me: Thanks, funny story about this shirt, blah blah blah.
Guy #2: Yeah, but the real question is, do you actually own a cat?
Guy #1: yeah, do you really have one?
WHAT?!?! Yeah, fake cat girl up in here.
What is needed is a shirt whose colour is in stark contrast to the cats, and therefore picks up ALL THE HAIR. Cat cred forever evident on shirt. (And on pants. And in those little annoying balls of hair that stick on the inside of your socks in the dryer. Stupid cats. Stupid, lovely, cats.)
Patients taking the antidepressant Effexor (venlafaxine) should be aware that the drug manufacturer Pfizer has issued a recall of one lot of the medications after they discovered one bottle contained a heart drug used to treat atrial fibrillation.
The medication found is Tikosyn that was discovered in one bottle of Effexor XR. The heart medication could cause abnormal heartbeat that could cause symptoms of dizziness, sweating, pallor and fainting.
Patients should check their antidepressant for lot numbers 130142 and V130140, with expiration date of October 2015. Also recalled is Effexor XR with Greenstone lot number V130014, which expires in August 2015.
The antidepressant recall includes two lots of Effexor XR® 150 Mg Extended-Release Capsules and one lot of Greenstone’s Venlafaxine HCl 150 Mg Extended-Release Capsules.
The FDA warns the interaction between the heart drug Tikosyn and venlafaxine “could be fatal”.
