    Maybe you didn't intend that message the way it reads to me, Jacie. Surely wfgodot is one of the most informative posters at WS, particularly in the "Up to Date" area! I know I've learned all sorts of things from him, but we can't expect that everything he links will be headline-making news to every reader.

    That said, I admit I don't understand the historical significance implied by the article. It can't be news that there were people in Panama 5,000 years ago, so I assume the importance has something to do with the history of shamanistic practices.

    Anybody know?

    The way I wrote it and the way it was read are diametrically opposed.

    Perhaps "No surprise to me....thanks for the link". Better?

    Thanks, Jacie. My point wasn't so much to criticize your post as to clarify (and, I admit, defend wfgodot because I so appreciate his links).

    Usually, at least in my experience, when someone says "no surprise" it's a blunt way of saying "you didn't need to tell ME that." It's sort of the equivalent of "big deal" or "I already knew that".

    Thanks again for the clarification.
