First, a torpedo with a 6,000-mile range weapon isn't a torpedo, it's an underwater ICBM.

To the Lakota, these magnificent animals sustained all life. The Lakota regarded the bison as a gift of the Great Spirit and viewed them as a relative.

The stars stand guard and a haze veils the sky, a few hours when no one will do anybody harm. If only we could speak to one another then when our hearts are half-open flowers.
