That this fellow is certain UFOs are real.

I do not look at Middle Easterners any differently than before
9/11. With crime, it is the criminal's fault, not others of the
same ethnic background. A week after 9/11 I sent emails to all
the local Muslim organizations I could find, telling them I
welcomed them as my fellow Canadians, and that I felt it was
tragic and atrocious that their children were being harassed in
school.

Yes and the media can help them, without much trouble, by giving
their speeches ongoing coverage, and making sure a debunker does
not get the last word on these spots.

No one has tried ongoing picketing yet. Why not?

Afraid of ridicule? As one who pickets for another cause subject
to government denial and ridicule, I can tell you first hand
that for every one of the (very few) ridiculers, there are
others who come along and congratulate me for having the courage
to tell the public about the other issue.

I am certain that UFO disclosure picketers would not find as
much on-site ridicule as perhaps they think. In fact, I think
such picketers would be overjoyed at the amount of support they
would find. It really raises your spirits when cars go by, honk,
and give you thumbs up when you're out on a cold, dark winter
day.

With so much support indicated in the polls, at the very least
one continuously manned picket site could be accomplished at
least during good weather. I'm sure there are enough supporters
who could spare a few vacation days - many people don't take
all their vacation anyway.

You want something, you gotta give something, is what this
situation amounts to, IMO.

 >Critical mass and collective knowledge is what is required here.

As I see it, the polls indicate a substantial mass, and the
information available from private researchers is incredible.
What is needed, in my opinion, is the hard work of picketing,
which is the only affordable way to get past both media and
government.

If I didn't have the other issue that needs my attention, I
would gladly start picketing immediately.
