I was teaching in a visiting capacity one winter (a few years ago) at Colorado College. And I took a cab in Colorado Springs; the driver (not Abed, Robert Fisk's driver) was a native American. So he asked me about my job. I told him. He did not say anything. But a few minutes later, he looked back at me and very seriously said: "Do you tell your students about the White Man and what he did to our people"? It stayed with me.
