Call me Russ L

The genocide of the North American Indian took place at least partly because of the clash of cultures.

On the one hand you had a culture in which ‘horse rustling’ was considered one of the worst crimes anyone could commit.

On the other, stealing a horse was seen as an important right of passage.

There was no way they could ever have co-existed in the same place at the same time.

    mind you, I don’t find Rocksound all that bad. Some rubbish, some good stuff – like most magazines.

    It’s what we call a ‘metaphor.’

    ‘Met-a-phor.’
