you got it, chief

Muff Fact #1712: The iconic crying Indian Chief in those "Keep America Beautiful" PSA's from our youth was named Iron Eyes Cody...and not only was he NOT Native American -- he was Sicilian. His real name was Espera de Corti AND HE WAS MY GREAT UNCLE -- a fact that did NOT keep me from belly crying every single time I saw it. And I'll be goddamned if it didn't work: I am a militant NON-litterer and am mightily disdainful of anybody who isn't.
