I wonder if the new Plum Creekville near Big Moose Mountain is planning on utilizing solar power, wind power, or squaw power?

Sorry, my only expert knowledge within the fields of birds concerns the subject of air travel as it relates to the speed of swallows carrying miniaturized picnic baskets.

I am equally apologetic about the squaw reference. It's a bit of an inside joke. For many years in the quiet Maine village of Greenville, Squaw Mountain protected the townspeople with fierce grandeur. Until somewhat recently, that is. A debate arose questioning the decency of commonly referring to the town's prize asset as WHORE SLUT YOU FUCKING BITCH MOUNTAIN. Since I haven't researched this topic, I feel okay about reporting the facts. Some tribes claimed that 'squaw' was a derogatory term, others claimed it was not. Better to err on the side of safety. Lord knows nobody wants to insult an Indian. But who gives a shit about that when there's a shiny new name on the table like Big Moose Mountain. Now that's something that will surely attract Native tourists!

I leave that up to interpretation. For me, it is the untapped reservoir of power that lies within Native American women. To Plum Creek, it might be the cheap labor force that could really tip the scales on their investment. But most likely, the term 'squaw' has been used to represent a theme common to corporations, especially those concerned with timber/resort development: exploitation. I am simply implying that Plum Creek, by their nature, will probably not seek smart energy sources, but rather opt for the cheapest, most environmentally destructive and humanly abusive solutions to every problem.
