When is this Me Too bs going to stop? Over the years I've had some bad experiences but none drove me to pretend my life was ruined! Women, you don't have to run to a lawyer or the New York Times! You can make money in other ways. Jump off this gravy train before it derails.

I love Sherman Alexie. He has the best wit and is so honest in everything he writes, but I do love his short stories and novels much more than his poems like 'The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fist Fight In Heaven.' He is great!
