    Dear Editor,

    Ellen Goodman’s column in the Post-Bulletin, “Third branch of government also give us reason to worry,” is a chilling reminder of how much we depend on the United States Supreme Court, not only for protecting the freedoms we enjoy but for enacting Constitutional change that affects every day American life as well. In the September 29 issue of News From Indian Country, the commentary, “Sarah Palin’s hostile record on tribal issues in Alaska,” written by two lawyers in Anchorage, Alaska, explains why we need to be concerned.
