The old Cherokee chief sat in his reservation hut, smoking the ceremonial pipe, eyeing the two US government officials sent to interview him.

"Chief Two Eagles," one official began, "you have observed the white man for many generations, you have seen his wars and his products, you have seen all his progress, and all his problems."

The chief nodded. The official continued, "Considering recent events, in your opinion, where has the white man gone wrong?"

The chief stared at the government officials for over a minute, and then calmly replied.

"When white man found the land, Indians were running it.

* No taxes.

* No debt.

* Plenty buffalo

* Plenty beaver

* Women did the work

* Medicine man free

* Indian men hunted and fished all the time..."

The chief smiled, and added quietly, "White man dumb enough to think he could improve system like that."

Yes, it doesn't look like such a great deal from the women's perspective. Maybe all modern technology and problems associated with it have been for the sole purpose of reducing the workload of women?
