Fighting Terrorism For 200 Years - 5

This series began with a Dredd Blog post that was taking a look at, was focusing on, and was journalistically noticing a certain media story about some frat brats in a Yale Fraternity (@ YaleU).

The catchy part that started it, that had piqued the reporter's curiosity, involved the Grand Nagus who walked among those frat brats with authority.

A supreme Grand Nagus who had hypothesized that it would be a venerable idea for the Skull & Bones Skulk & Boners to ritualistically go all the way (The War Whores Ride The War Horse) to Fort Sill, Oklahoma.

Once there, the frats would steal one more good time.

A very good time would be had by all who would go there, because certain locations at or near Fort Sill are a special place for certain groups within the Native American culture.

One location especially, because the bones of Geronimo rest there (Fighting Terrorism For 200 Years).

Geronimo's Bones that were resting in a grave of course, which the young frats dug up and absconded with, then transported to Yale University.

Where they then placed those Bones of Geronimo into common containers.

They then stored them within buildings housing the Skull & Bones fraternity of Yale.

Eventually forcing the descendants of Geronimo to file a lawsuit asking "is it ever too late to get some justice?"

According to the court that litigated the case, the answer so far is "don't ask, we won't tell":
Geronimo's descendants have sued Skull and Bones _ the secret society at Yale University linked to presidents and other powerful figures _ claiming that its members stole the remains of the legendary Apache leader decades ago and have kept them ever since.
And, as far as the secret society is concerned, U.S. District Judge Richard Roberts held that the law under which Skull and Bones was sued, the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act, only applies to grave robberies that took place after its enactment in 1990.
(Yale Secret Society Skull and Bones Wins Lawsuit, emphasis added). In other words, history is not one of our strong suits.

At least when it comes to making sense of it.

So, eat cake and carry on.
