The SciFi's interest was demonstrated today during a four hour
Symposium at the George Washington University in Washington DC.
The subject of the event was "Interstellar Travel and
Unidentified Aerial Phenomena: Science Fiction or Science Fact".
It was moderated by Ray Suarez, a senior correspondent for "The
NewsHour", and the speakers included Dr. Richard Henry, Dr.
Michio Kaku, Dr. Bernard Haisch, Dr. Peter Sturrock, Dr. Jacques
Vallee, Ted Roe and John Callahan.

I believe that others are planning a detailed report on the
event, so I won't attempt to provide any details. But the fact
that this type of event, with a distinguished panel of this
type, was sponsored by the SciFi Channel speaks well for their
efforts.

The SciFi Channel's President, Bonnie Hammer, said the cable
network has straddled the line between science fact and science
fiction for a decade. She hoped that the thrust of their effort
would help to define that line more clearly, and today's event
was a positive step.

I would add that "Taken" wasn't mentioned once during the
Symposium, and there was no effort to promote the 10 hour
mini- series.

PS- It was a pleasure to have the chance to meet John Velez, who
was one of many who had driven many miles to attend.
