A comment on the Indian issue. I have a native American friend in northern Michigan. There are several casinos that have popped up in the area, and she says there was never even an organized tribe by the name the owner/operators are using. She doesn't mind the check they send her every month though.

The casinos pay no taxes and operate with impunity. Their payback rate is pathetic, essentially they rob old people of their social security. I cannot stand to visit these places because you stand almost no chance of winning. Of course, they highly publicize the folks who do win, usually some sort of regional combined jackpot, spread out over dozens of casinos.

Once a year the local casino will donate $1M or so to the local school system to keep the taxman off their back. I'm serious here.

I knew that and I don't agree with it by any means.

I would travel back to Egypt and prevent the burning of the library at Alexandria.

Definitely. Definitely. Definitely.

What an appalling tragedy that was.
And a superb suggestion.

If Eva didn't need any help at Alexandria then I'd be back in time and eradicating anyone who showed even the slightest religious leanings.
With any luck I might just be able to keep humankind from ever encountering it.
