Paul DeMain
The Truth Exposed At Last!!!

January 18, 2005

jsd note:

Enemies are necessary. Fundamental to ones health.

I do not refer to the rabid and racist. Those whose intent is to demean and belittle as a matter of course. Those seeking stature by repeated moronic assaults. Those whose talk and sniping are the truest indicators of their character.

I am referring to those whose presence serves to prod self-appraisal.

Here in Native Cyber-space there are many legitimate enemies. These are the ones we must Honor. By virtue of being an Enemy they serve to keep us healthy.

Enemies and Friends. Fundamentals.

Finally, it is with great pleasure (and at the prodding of Enemies) that we get the following about Paul DeMain out on the street where all can see! at last!:

Shotguns and death threats [nor moronic sniping] can't scare Paul DeMain, who, as editor of the Hayward-based News from Indian Country, has exposed murder and wrong-doing among icons of the American Indian Movement, including imprisoned martyr Leonard Peltier.
