In August 1993, I was in Las Vegas, spending some time with some friends. We had gone out to dinner. During the meal, I received a phone call. Those who had stayed at the house had received an urgent call for me to come to Connecticut to cover a stand-off between State Police and an Indian tribe, the Golden Hill Paugeesukq. The Indians had been selling cigarettes to force the hand of the Governor, who, by law, was supposed to negotiate an agreement for the Indians to sell cigarettes.
Well, we finished our meal and returned to their house. I began making some phone calls, and within a few days, I was on my way to Connecticut.
