FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2001

Welcome to In The Hoop, Indianz.Com's occasional column about assorted Indian issues.

In The Hoop: The Scorecard
Is it Friday already? That means it's time for the weekly list of the movers and shakers in Indian Country and beyond.

The Winners
National Congress of American Indians - Just when everyone wondered if you mattered any more, you showed that you still do, and in a big way.

Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara Nation Chairman Tex Hall - Congratulations on your presidency! We hope you keep telling the truth because someone's gotta.

U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth - Three words: Fab-u-lous.

Department of Interior Press Secretary Mark Pfeifle - Congratulations on finishing your tour with Wayne Newton! Now get back to your office and do some work.

DOI Spokesperson John Wright - For being able to work a fax machine. That should keep the ax from falling for another week or two.

The Losers
Secretary of Interior Gale Norton - For being called to a contempt trial. Will you have the guts to make it a "top priority" and show up?

Secretary of Interior Gale Norton - For being the grinch who stole consultation. Bet you still wish you were "home alone."

Deputy Interior Secretary J. Steven Griles - For speaking with forked tongue. Where is that EDS report again?

Assistant Secretary Neal McCaleb - For trying to pawn your responsibility onto someone else.

Golf courses in Oklahoma - For being snowed in this week. Your favorite Chickasaw Republican could not play on you!

In the Middle
The Crow Tribe of Montana - Are you in? Or are you out? No one can tell anymore.

Chickasaw Nation, Choctaw Nation - Was the Supreme Court battle worth the tax bill? And the lawyer's fees?

The Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation - It looks like those 165 acres will be in limbo a bit longer, thanks to Blumy's latest salvo.

People who fall down in casinos - For expecting to be pampered.
