I agree. For the rest of the readership, I commend your ultimate solution:
         Blinderman, CS. 1986. The Piltdown problem solved. J. Irreproducible
             Results 31:2-6.
For those who don't buy conspiracy theories, try mine:
         Langdon, JH 1991. Misinterpreting Piltdown. Current Anthropology
             32(5):627-631.
But if you think there is a consensus, see
         Drawhorn, GM 1994. Piltdown: Evidence for Smith Woodward's complicity.
             Amer. J. Phys. Anthrop. (Suppl. 18):82.
