Well thanks for taking the time to respond in any case:o) You are far more
qualified than I (not at all) to analyze the claims, and I appreciate the
effort even if it seems like a waste of time to you. If it makes you feel any
better, I strongly tend to go with your analysis.
As far as gov't coverups go... they *do* happen (Iran-Contra ring a
bell?), and this and the "UFO" topics (or is that "UFO garbage", as another
poster recently put it;o) would be prime candidates. Doesn't mean it's there,
but if one can't see why it's a very plausible possibility... well, in my
opinion such a person is pretty naive. 'Course, it's easy for me to say,
having had a *very* advance craft of some sort hover over my head not more
than 100 feet up for a good three minutes or so (was in 1978 with my mother
and step-father, and that technology is *still* "impossible"). Still, I guess
it could have been swamp-gas;o) And methinks that if it wasn't from "out
there", it was ours, in which case we are being told fairy-tales as far as
what the state-of-the-art in propulsion systems is. But I digress...
Thanks for your willingness to respond further to what I know is an
exasperating subject for you!
