Thank you, Chris.  Well said!  Soon, this thread will have to go on
without me.  I have a family wedding that I'm preparing for in the
mid-west.  We're leaving in a week.

Well, the onslaught keeps me young. <G> All kidding aside,
I appreciate your thoughts and that of others.  I hope something
good came from these posts.  Hopefully, they were a warning to
others about witness anonymity.  I've wondered, how many people
saw these threads?   Maybe thousands.

I hope this video tape situation isn't as bad, as I was told it was.
I saw a tape of the TV program it aired on, but the details of how
it got into the posseasion of these peoples hands, has not yet been
clear to me.  If I'm going to need a lawyer, then, so be it.

Well, ufology has shown some of the crack-pots within its community,
that's for sure.

However, I want to apologize to those who have read some of my nasty
responses.  I didn't want to offend anyone, other than those who have
been downright insensitive and arrogant. While growing up, I was raised
to fight back and so have my children.  So, if I have offended the
innocent, I'm truly sorry.

Warm regards,
Linda Cortile
