Yeah, that whole thing was pathetic. Sorry you had to go though

Well, disinformation by the History Channel, I was absolutely
put aback by the seeming layering of "Crash Test Dummies"
"Re-entry Shapes", "Balloon Tests" ad nausium.

Kevin it was a hatchet job worthy of '60 Minutes' when they are
bashing general aviation. The only thing missed was "Swamp Gas"

I _never_ trust the media, I've been in the newpaper business
some and hated it. when I was in aviation they were a bunch of
gouls and  muckrakers. I have a long story about Sam Donaldson
and the airtanker business. Yeah, you should have walked, but
then they may have made you and the others look worse.

Correct me if I'm wrong... did they use the word 'believer' vs.
reasearcher when refeering to anyone who is a Roswell supporter?
