Native American Heritage Day

An honor or an afterthought?

Federal legislation set aside the day after Thanksgiving — for this year only — to honor the contributions Native Americans have made to the United States. You didn't know? Well, you're not alone. Details from The Associated Press.

(Thanks to Ms. Cornelius, publisher of A Shrewdness of Apes, for the heads up.)

Why just for this year? Shouldn't such a commemoraton be in perpetuity? Just wondering.

Ian: I'm wondering the same thing. Let's hope that the powers-that-be do the right thing.io

John Ridley of the Huffington Post is pretty blunt when he writes about the legislation.
