The Kennewick Man's Not-So-Speedy Trial

As the Claremont Institute put it:

"Kennewick man does not belong to a current Indian tribe and thus can be studied by scientists. Kennewick man waited 9200 years for the 9th circuit to get a decision right."

I felt I should post on this because I've actually been to Kennewick, and thus have actually witnessed many a Kennewick man in person. Lesson time: Kennewick is a part of what we Washingtonians like to call the "Tri-Cities" area. You see, Pasco, Richland, and Kennewick all strattle the Columbia River in the southeastern region of Washington. This area was really quite famous even before the Kennewick man. What are the Tri-Cities' claims to fame? Well, besides being the home of famed sci-fi writer Orson Scott Card, it's the home of the nation's largest repository of nuclear waste. What's the nearest metro area to the Tri-Cities? You guessed it, Yakima. You probably didn't guess it, I know. You probably haven't read this far.

I think it's now fair to say that this site is your best source for coverage of the Kucinich campaign and news from the Tri-Cities. I do it for you.
