“Butr we look to Huf Post for a lot more than a blurb on a subject like this. Maybe a bigger blurb? Your coin is your longreads -- like you promos promise, remember?”

“I know, but the AP issued it like this as a followup to larger, much more thorough coverage. I always do the research by looking for the previous things when they have small articles which followup on things, which is the case here. What is sad about this is that they had intensively attacked the problem, and with attentiveness and done so with transparency, which is not always the case in medicine, and thought they had eliminated the problem, but obviously, it has not been thoroughly eliminated.”
“I figured out who Jack the Ripper was in 3 days, when I was 15, and secrets of the Titanic, the Hindenburg and a Canadian air crash (it was shot down) that you people and THESE people
STILL don't know not long after -- and I don't count??? Sheesh!”

“In 1864 two surveyors were killed by natives in the Chilcotin. When investigators asked local natives who had done it, they said Klatsassin. The sheriff pointed to a tall, striking looking native, with yellow or blond hair and blue eyes and asked who he was. Klatsassin, he was told. Klatsassin was tried and hung with the rest of his peace party. Klatsassin is Chilcotin for "We do not know his name."”

“The whole Chilcotin war is a fascinating story involving two very different cultures clashing. This above comment makes a good point on the dangers of mis-translation, but really over simplifies what really happened. Two things though:
1. something similar to the above statement of regret from the govenment was done in the 90's in regards to the hanging of Klatsassin and his party. There is a monument and local holiday.
2. Klatsassin, while meaning "We do not know his name", was his name.
Still awesome point/story/piece of history.”
“These tales of the old times are always so nice to hear. Oral history is always 100% accurate and free of any bias or hidden agendas.
I hope their will also be an apology from the family of the real murderers to the families of the innocent men. I'm sure that with such an amazingly accurate oral history, everyone knows who the real killers were.”
