Seminole success story

Joseph Brown writes about the Seminole Tribe's remarkable transformation in Gators to Casinos | An American Success Story in Miami. An excerpt:We hear a lot of talk these days about the “death of the American Dream,” usually from people who stand to benefit politically from such statements. But I have to say that making the leap from fighting a war of extermination against the U.S. government to wrestling alligators in the Everglades to managing a multi-million dollar business is an American success story that some people would do well to take note of.Comment:  It's always good to see someone recognize Indian gaming for the incredible boon it's been.
