Three archaeology digs:

After having  dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, New York
scientists 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 New Yorkers, a California archaeologist dug
to a depth of 20 feet and shortly  after, a story in an LA newspaper
read: "California  archaeologists discover 200 year old copper wire,
they have concluded that their ancestors already had an  advanced
high-tech communications network a hundred  years earlier than the New

One week later, a local newspaper in Iowa reported the following:
"After digging as deep as 30 feet in his  pasture near Story City,
Iowa, Ole, a self-taught  archaeologist, reported that he found
absolutely  nothing. Ole, has therefore concluded that 300 years ago,
Iowa  had already gone wireless."

It makes one proud to have lived in the great state of Iowa.
Stay safe.
