Gone Native

When I was a kid on the farm, there was a area that was "a traditional camping area" for the natives. It was a rocky flat hilltop, the highest land for miles. It was suitable for grassing cattle but little else. There was a slough adjacent that usually held water, and that piece was fenced off and left to run the cattle into a couple of times each year.

This is the same piece where the natives used to platform there dead until the police and County tried to put an end to that practice.  The last time I drove by there was still a platform, but who know if it is use. (that land is not in the family anymore)

It seem now that the the missing native inquire wants to look at all the missing, even the unreported by close family as missing. The natives that I know do not report to the police much of what goes on.

They also want to look at domestic abuse, and those who leave there homes for safer places, without providing forwarding addresses, and just end up being called missing, and wish to remain that way. Oh well, it is just government.

In development estimating, it was common to allow 10% waste/overage, and with government 20%. Do I here 30% in bureaucracy?

But what do I know?
