“Black Bull known as a wag and a wit, carried a bundle of papers from various white men stating that he was a chief and deserved special consideration. He told the commission that if they wanted to buy Indian land, the Indians were willing to sell it at a fair price. He suggested that they bring in a big scale. The Indians would weigh the earth and sell it by the pound.”

I love thunderstorms.
The other night I was up late, with the deck door open to the night, and I heard two of these feathery friends courting out in the inky blackness.
I never saw the love birds (these two are from Nevada), but I sure heard them, flying in big circles over the back field and house. There was an occasional screech, but mostly a weird, metallic chirping sound made in long bursts, that I could trace by sound as they made their wide circles in the night sky.
It was really cool, and something that wouldn't normally be noticed unless it was quiet, the door was open, and I was up to listen.
The Choctaws believe that if an owl flies into your house, it's bad luck, and the two I heard were so close at times that I wondered if they would be attracted to my light and fly in the open door. No bad luck for me, fortunately. Enough said for the adventures of living in the country!
What, she has no staff to research these cases? She knows full well - full well - that the judge has ruled in many cases for "the little guy," but chose instead to try this stupid game.
Further, a judge must apply the law without consideration for whether the case involves a "little guy" or a "big corporation." The law should apply equally to all. To suggest that is should not, as Feinstein appears to do here, is the real outrage.
