Dear Albert Hale and Confluence Project Partners,
No! No! No! Those were the answers the Cleveland Indians gave to the Jacoby Ellsbury-led New York Yankees in the 12-0 score at their baseball game on Aug. 28.
Sorry, Jacoby, my Tacheeni-clan brother/nephew, for that grand thumping – nothing pretty about that.
But that is the same message many concerned Dineh Nation voters wish to send to these three modern-day dreamers.
No $65-million start-up cash. No Confluence railroad-resort-casino. And no Confluence liquor bar! You are trying to play hardball with soft money to be found nowhere on mother earth. Three strikes and you are simply out!
Finally, what part of “no” do you freeloaders-to-be not understand?
Sign me a sincere Grand Canyon trekker.
