Rosetta Stone is a f---ing fraud. I certainly won't recommend to my Ute 
friends that they do anything with them--if they asked me. However, 
preying on innocent customers is RS's specialty, and the Natives are 
just as gullible as the rest of us, an in many way more vulnerable. I 
hope they don't create more damage than history already has.  TG
