Hello Jim:

I might have given the wrong impression! I'm not a Dubliner, I'm
not even Irish (not much anyway). I had one German granny, the
rest mostly English with just a drop of Scotch-Irish, and maybe
a weakness for genuine pub Guinness, corned beef with cabbage
etc. - - - One (perhaps small) advantage of separate lists would
be that the perceived abductees could be more open with one
another, with less ridicule and dismissal. Some abductees who
don't post now might be more willing to do so.

Those who prefer other aspects of UFOs could debate and discuss
without the problems Katharina referred to.

Yes, the downsides might overwhelm the advantages. It was just
an idea Eleanor brought up which I found interesting. - - - I
still worry about the cost-benefit ratio of Foccacia bread going
from coast to coast! I hope it travels better than Guinness,
that gets wrecked in hermetically sealed containers!


- Larry
