A Bit of Proud Upper Michigan History

Last January the New Orleans Times Picayune reported that a Cajun amateur
archaeologist having dug to a depth of 10 meters found traces of copper wire
dating back 100 years.... and came to the conclusion that their ancestors
already had a telephone network more than 100 years ago.

Not to be outdone by the Cajuns, in the weeks that followed, Texas scientists
dug to a depth of 20 meters. Shortly after, headlines in the Dallas Morning
News read: " Texas archaeologists have found traces of 200-year old copper
wire, and have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced
high-tech communications network one hundred years earlier than the Cajuns."

One week later, The "Yooper" News and Observer, reported the following:
"After digging as deep as 30 meters in fields near Escanaba, Michigan, Swen
Hansen, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely
Swen has therefore concluded that 300 years ago in the Upper Peninsula of
Michigan they were already using wireless." :p
