Don't forget that at 99.9% of the speed of light it only takes
20 months, pilot time, to go a distance of 37 Light Years
(Distance to Zeta Reticuli) .At 99.99% of the speed of light it
only takes 6months to go a distance of 37 light years. Go out
and come back and marry your grand child's best friend. The gift
of immortality. No reason to assume they come here from home
base each time. I once did 25 lectures in 35 days in 15 states
without being home at all in the interim.

There have been incidents of UFO picketing in DC. Elaine Douglas
and the Right to Know group did it. Got some CNN coverage.

Frankly, I think trying to get any of the major media to spend
1/10 what was spent on Monica Lewinsky, Elian Gonzalez, Gary
Condit would be more productive. On the other hand I am not at
all in favor of releasing all classified info we have gleaned
from measurments of the flight characteristics and from careful
evaluation of flying saucer wreckage.Why put advanced technical
data out on the table for the Husseins and Osamas of the
world.One can't tell ones friends without telling ones enemies.
Breaking open the Cosmic Watergate is one thing. Handing out
very advanced technology is quite something else. One of the
many problems with what Greer is doing is that he doesn't seem
to have any real understanding of security. But then the SETI
Cultists don't either.I do think I will join the SETI League
which includes SETV among its goals. (Search for
Extraterrestrial Visitations)

I think the very wide acceptance of UFO reality and new thinking
about government cover-ups have been real achievments. As  has
been noted before, I have had only 11 hecklers after over 700
lectures and I come on very strong.  Come on out to Roswell for
July 6 .My talk will be "Critiquing the Roswell Critics". Or
tune in to the Canadian Cable TV SPACE Channel on Wednesday,
June 19, 8PM, EDT, 9PM in the Maritime provinces and 9:30 in
Newfoundland for "Stanton T. Friedman IS Real" including
comments from Kevin Randle and Karl Pflock.
