Mormons? For a moment there, I thought you'd written something else
similarly spelled. <g>

What is this obsession with caucasians-as-proto-Indians thing? Ever noticed
those "archeologically correct" (allegedly) fiction novels on the shelves
in which the *first Indians are suspiciously *caucasian?

And I thought the theory was they were *Asian.

Anyway, the idea that Indians are transplanted and (tanned) caucasians is
also popular with the nuage set that wants to recast the conquest from
invasion to just a sort of messy homecoming...
