Hello George, Bob:

If I can add another little peeve of my own:

When a disc is seen, the headings in the weekly newsletters -
Filers, Roundup - are something like "Disk over X-Place".

If its a triangle or maybe a cylinder, the header says that.

So, _why_ are fireballs, nite-lites etc. called "UFOs"?

Whats wrong with "Fireballs (or Night-lights) Seen in PA"?

This would save readers _so_ much time and eyestrain! They could
scan past those reports looking for something more interesting.

Its gotten to the point that I don't even read articles that
start out "UFO seen in Xxxxx" any more. 9 times out of 10 its a
nite lite or fireball. I think its something of a disservice
not to warn readers, right up top, that they are straining their
eyes for nite-lites and fireballs. Time is precious.

Best wishes

- Larry Hatch
