Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think the increase in income to people is a good thing generally, but I don't think this is an appropriate vehicle for it.  At least in my area, the tribe has put in a big casino, but the Indian Health budget has not increased, and we still don't have anywhere near appropriat programs for the at-risk youth I work with every day.  It seems to also have caused much animosity and concern about who is "indian" enough to get in on the largesse.
