      Would not a simpler answer be that the artifact suggests that the prophet
      Joseph Smith was right - and that we need a careful (intratextual?) pomo
      reading of the Book of Mormon to seek further traces of Jesus and American
      football? Puns in reformed Egyptian - or just `mistranslations' after the
      style of C C Torrey could surely provide some `evidence'!
