The Letter "B"
|Sunset and the Buffalo|
It had been a decade or more since I had seen "Dances with Wolves". In this movie, Kevin Costner was young and impassioned; Graham Greene was awesome in his stolid humor; and the buffalo were nearing their near-permanent decline.
A male buffalo is not to be trifled with or around. They are wild animals who may seem to be made into a pet, but this is just not so.
For some reason, when the trains were barreling across the plains, buffalo were considered to be easy-pickins', which I guess they were. The result of this needless slaughter was the almost genocide of the Native Americans.
|Today: Pay for your own buffalo hun|
The letter for today is B for buffalo. May this magnificent animal find resurgence.
