Book of Mormon Geography? Controversy?

Infighting! There is an argument in the church among "scholars" about the book of Mormon taking place in the United States http://www.sltrib.com/faith/ci_14750506

I love this! Those of us who have reasonably concluded that Joseph Smith did not provide for this issue when he embellished on a borrowed idea can sit back and giggle at the true believers trying to work out this conondrum. How does a guy quiet the cognitive dissonance when on the outside there is competetive dissonance from within the church? It is this sort of infighting that we need to encourage by asking questions like that.

Who should answer the question?

Ask yourself who is answering the question currently and if they should be, then ask yourself who should be answering the question and isn't. Then quiet the dissonance that arises with your method of choice.
