Subject: Fox 23 Albany NY Video

For those ufologists interested in the unfolding melodrama
concerning the Fox 23 -WXXA, Albany, New York - videotape of an
unknown object, I want to send along the following.

To clarify some questions that came to mind regarding the
background and motives for taking the video, I directly
contacted Fox 23, the alleged employer of Brandon Mowry, the
photographer. I verified that he is indeed employed by WXXA-TV
as a videographer and is not a freelancer. Additionally, I
received the following communication from Karen Meyers of
ClearChannel.com (which is a division of Fox 23), on November 4,
2002, regarding some other questions I asked:

"It was a fluke that Brandon captured this. He was shooting a
weather shot at the airport and didn't even know about this
strange object until he returned to the station 30 minutes later
and was looking through the tape. The FBI quizzed him at
length...and determined he was telling the truth and that the
tape was not doctored. Brandon has done several national
interviews on his video but has not received a dime for them."

I am not interested in pursuing this matter any further, and so
wish to share this info with those who may want to follow up.

At this time, I remain open-mindedly skeptical of this whole
"rods" as "space animals" angle (as too many "sizes" appear to
exist depending on who is taking the pictures). But I have no
reason to dismiss Mr. Mowry's tape, yet.
