Good for him.  The nice thing about having property rights is that when you own property you get to do with it whatever you like.  If you have a passion for an issue, you can use that passion to make more money and then put that money to work solving the problem.  That's the whole vision of free markets and individual liberty.

I'd be singing a different tune if Depp was insisting that the government buy the property and give it to the Indians.  But if he wants to do it, more power to him.

You took the words out of my mouth. I was about to post this but now all I need to say is Ditto.

Is this his way of saying "sorry" to the Indians for his portrayal of Tonto?

Could be.  I hear it's a stinker.

That's what it said in the AP story in this morning's newspaper, that his portrayal of Tonto was viewed by many as stereotypical and offensive to American Indians.

Well, duh... the whole character is a stereotype and always has been. Sorry to say, but there wasn't much of a need for tax-free gasoline and cigarettes back in the Old West, so the modern Indian would be out of luck.

It may very well be.  Apparently, the press is snooping around (God only knows why they never do such snooping when it comes to OPapaDoc) and they can't seem to find any evidence that Depp or his people have made any inquiries about the property.  This could just be a publicity gimmick.
