Hi Don, hi All,

Sorry for delay in response. I've been off-line for three days
with major computer problems.

In answer to Don's question; not from my end Don. My response to
Jerry's post was in regard to the 'vehemence' of some debunkers
and where that intensity comes from. I was not commenting on the
'meteor' case at all. After I reread it I realized that it
'could have been' interpreted as 'support for a UFO theory'
which is not what I meant at all. I was laughing at, and
commenting on, Jerry's humorous synopsis of some of the theories
put forward by 'some' debunkers.

Not supporting a UFO explanation for the case in question.

Thanx for allowing me the opportunity to clarify that.
