Indian Ruins To Become Public Housing

State Public Housing officials proposed using Arizona's numerous Indian ruins as a source of public housing for the poor.

"With a minimum amount of repairs, many of these ruins are perfect for low income residences," noted Leland Sork, head of housing,"if you don't mind that they're haunted".

Not surprisingly, state Indian leaders were aghast at the proposal. "These are the sacred homes of our ancestors," noted Chief Running Brook of the Santa Catalina Apache Tribe. When asked why modern Indians don't live in the ruins, Running Brook answered, "they're too far from the cities and they don't have plumbing." The chief added, off the record, that the ruins weren't in good casino locations.
