In Memorium: Vine Deloria, Jr. Deloria, a Standing Rock Sioux who burst into the American consciousness in 1969 with his book ''Custer Died for Your Sins'' and later amplified his message through 20 more books about the Native American experience, died on Sunday, 11/13/05, at age 72. Ho, mitakuye oyasin.
In Memorium: Chris LeDoux 1948 - 2005 "I learned a thing that I'd never knowed, from this guy who'd been beaten so bad. It's better to ride, even if you get throwed, than to wind up just wishing you had.... Life is just like riding broncs, it's a battle... But I'd gladly take ten seconds in the saddle, for a lifetime of watching from the stands." by Chris LeDoux
