what a nice/nike story! :-)

i will use it in my anthro courses when explaining that all anthros
should always be aware that the people they are describing will
read themselves what has been written about them and are likely to
comment ethnographies. E. Dolan's comment seems very arrogant as
well as ignorant to me
