No, no, no. You've got it all confused. Villasur went from Santa Fe to
the Plate (not the Missouri), which is Spanish for silver, which is not
a horse, in 1719, which was not 1519, nor was it 1520 (nor 1720) as was
initially proposed; moreover, it was not Crow Creek nor Clear Creek
which is where Denver is now. One of the more thoughtful Spaniards of
his day--indeed, he was known to his compatriots as "Cerebral
Cortex"--was not with them, however, he was back on the beach at
Cotzumel (or as the proto-Aztec Olmecs knew it, Calomel, or Malomar,
which is not Palomar where the telescope would be) trying to make a deal
with the Kiahuitans, or Ruritans, not the Puritans, for one of those
small cars designed by Porsche for Volkswagen, a Carmen Chia. It was
Verendrye who found the lead tablets left by La Salle du Bain, but they
were in a child-proof bottle and he couldn't open it.
