cass, can you not

My gods

If you've read Last Call: how come the author didn't include this in the setting?

Given the density of references in the book, the only reason I can surmise is that Tim Powers knew this fact, and either decided that it matches his universe so well that it wouldn't be believable (even although it's true as far as I know), or decided it would be fun for readers to stumble on and be freaked out by.
