I think we've been down this road before. It's not in their job
description to question meteor sightings. That's for someone
like S.E.A.N. or whatever.

If I were to tell you I saw the mayor of Glendale yesterday, you
would yawn and go silent. If I told you I saw Elvis yesterday,
you'd be questioning it, denouncing it, etc.

Now I don't for a second compare Elvis sightings to UFO
sightings. But my point is that they (the skeptibunkers) do. So
their reactions are perfectly understandable, within the context
of their own perspectives. Their perspective may be wrong, but
their reaction within that perspective is correct.
