The old Indian chief sat in his home on the reservation, smoking his long pipe, eyeing the two U.S. government officials sent to interview him.

"Chief'," one official began, "You have observed the white man for many years. You have seen all his progress and all his problems." The chief nodded. The official continued, "What do you think of all the white man has done?"

The chief stared at the official for a long time, then he replied, "When white man found the land, Indians were running it. No taxes. No debt. Plenty buffalo, plenty beaver. Women did most of the work. Medicine man cost nothing. Indian men hunt and fish all day."

The chief paused, then added, "Only white man dumb enough to think he could improve system like that."
