Just a simple Cherokee trial lawyer, Barkman has been forcing his opinions on others in print since, for reasons that passeth understanding, he was an unsuccessful candidate for state representative in 2002. His philosophy: "If people had wanted me to be nice, they should've voted for me."

My Fan Club

I love Barney Maddox. Really, I do. I always look forward to his bizarre, rambling, disjointed flailings and I've missed them lately. His latest diatribe [link to follow] (which is apparently a response to my August 27 column; it's kind of hard to tell) makes a couple of fascinating points: 1) Pro-choice people can't be environmentalists; 2) God loves pollution and hates liberals; 3) taxes are evil; 4) concrete is not evil; and 5) Maddox is not going to read my column unless I live in a tepee, "unplug from the grid" (whatever that's supposed to mean. Maybe it's from The Matrix), wear a loincloth and eat tadpoles.
Get it? See, that's funny, because ALL Native Americans live in tepees, wear loincloths and eat tadpoles. See? Funny, huh? Man, Randy Sheridan's got nothing on you, Maddox.
