Hello Larry and Eleanor ... EBK,

I hate to disagree with a fello Grippler, but I do. This List
consists of researchers who should be hearing about what is
happening in the abduction community. That is their purpose
in'it? To keep informed? Or is it to commisserate with each
other on the state of ufology only amongst themselves?

In the last book I read, there was just that one, I lerned that
in order to communicate, the act required that the information
flow two ways. Just lurking points to nothing. Communicating
points to understanding.

Just my opinion.

And by the by, I have not forgotten the "foccacio" affair. Just
as a communique' between the Palermians and the Dublinians, I
shall perform my diplomatic duties and send a loaf of same to
Mr. Hatcher. I just gotta make the trip to Little Palermo and
that's a bit of a schlep.

Best regards,
