Well, the thick plottens!! :)

Cogs went to Calico on Saturday and spoke to the people there about it, and it has shed a whole new light on the story. You can read his posts about it here.

Oh! Maybe it should be in the New World Section..

The caustic comment on the archaeologist's back ground was just pointing out the irony of the system.

Native American remains used to be treated as souvenirs, but now even scientists can not study them unless they have the proper pedigree.

Glad you did it because I would have screwed it up big time.
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.
