Wow. Of the several mentions I've received on AOA (thanks guys!) the links from this far exceed anything before. If you've had trouble with this restaurant coupon site, then we're partners in pain. If not, click the link above to see what the problem is.

... The theft itself of this important Native American artifact is an important part of its story. It's really a miracle that almost 70 years later that the Cornplanter pipe tomahawk ended up back at the State Museum, instead of remaining in someone's secret, private collection acquired illicitly, or even worse, not cared for professionally and therefore damaged, destroyed, or lost forever.
