Skullduggery is not a family value!
As if Bush wasn't in enough trouble over the immigration mess, wait till the American Indians get hold of him. Today's LA Times reports that Bush's grandfather might have been the culprit who dug up Apache chief Geronimo's skull, so that rich white kids who belonged to the elite Skull and Bones fraternity could play their power games with it:
HARTFORD, Conn. — A Yale University historian has uncovered a 1918 letter that seems to lend validity to the lore that Yale University's secret Skull and Bones society swiped the skull of American Indian leader Geronimo.While other historians are skeptical, Geronimo's great grandson is threatening to sue.
As Geronimo left descendants, there's no reason why DNA testing couldn't establish the skull's lineage.
American Indians aren't the only people interested in the story. So are Indian Indians. The Times of India elaborates on the rites:
Alumni include US president Bush, Senator John Kerry, president William Howard Taft, numerous members of Congress, media leaders, Wall Street financiers, the scions of wealthy families and agents in the CIA.Hah! You'll never get me to do that!
(My secrets are my own affairs, and not a proper subject of group rights, or group rites.)
Has anyone asked Senator Kerry to comment?
MORE: The issue is graver than even I imagined. Look what I just dug up:
In all fairness, though, it has to be remembered that no one is accusing President Bush of invading burial grounds (which means there are no grounds for impeachment).
