At this point in the discussion, I think the appropriate question
is: Do native Americans have to resemble Robert Johnson creations?

On Feb 8, another Robert Johnson post, in its entirety, stated:

>Justice in South Africa may yet have to be purchased in blood.

I think Mr. Johnson wants another tirade or is this just his
"topic of the day" announcement? Maybe it's better to not
discuss South Africa at his behest right now. We know he already
has his responses figured out- before he even sees the comments.
I'm sure there is genuine interest in South Africa on the part of
others, as well as interest in other places in the world, but it
would be sad to use more material for Mr. Johnson's indignant
flames...or should I say indigenous flames?!
