John Goff: Yeah, this thing is in SUCH bad taste, it boggles the mind. We've got to get an amazing protest going on Saturday...and I would love it if a "new" King Phillip could speak about "his" war...and I'm going to see if maybe I could attend to photograph & film...because this is not just a Narragansett or Wampanoag issue. It's not just a Providence and RI issue. It is evidence of (sorry to say) dominant culture IGNORANCE...and this century needs to be better than that.
Dr. Carolyn Fluehr Lobban: Trust me, there would be no Wounded Knee game.
Robert Mcvay: Great article. Schmidt uses Davis's piece as a springboard for many excellent critical observations. This is good stuff.
Ann Mione: Wow--I am speechless. Unbelievable. Excellent that a protest is planned.
Ed Chandler: And the Colonial mistreatment continues towards Natives! This time, for the sake of the almight buck! Shall it ever stop? Massive and immediate protest is the only course of action.
Karen Salvucci: This is "HORRIFIC"....I feel there is no common sense any more....You used a good example, John, using the Holocaust....Another would be a game of Plantation Owners in a game of Winning Slaves....When does this all end??....There are still many prejudices amoungst Americans today toward Native Americans and a game like this only reinforces it in the minds of not only the small-minded, but their offspring....

P.S. As usual, I've cleaned up the spelling and punctuation a little to make the comments more readable.
