Every* day, lately, I see more news showing a tightening grasp** on the peoples of the world by agents of power and knowledge. Domestic affairs are more about foreignness than ever, it seems.
* Story about an expedition by Brazilian anthropologists to collect information on the size and number of uncontacted indigenous groups in the Amazon (without actually contacting them).
** Story about tensions between indigenes and commercial fisheries in the Torres Straits Islands. Australia gives broad protection of indigenous rights to land, but courts have not yet ruled on rights to the sea.

I like the footnotes. Good approach.

Thanks. In the near future, I would like to start using in-line CSS1-standard layout in my comments, y'know for tables and charts. No tables of course. Right now, I'll bet there are some NS4 users for whom this would cause viewing problems.
