Hi John,

Didn't realize that you were in on that production. But yes,
Budd was certainly screwed over in that case. It would have been
interesting to see the stuff they cut out. This just proves that
NOVA's integrity is only as deep as whatever credibility they
suck out of their other production talents.

As for dropping out of all productions to teach them a lesson,
I'm not sure who will be the ones who suffer. It's the mass
media that gets the "facts" out there, that is if they don't
change them to suit their model of a UFO story.

If we can believe the polls of late-there is some understanding
of what's going on amongst the general public. They must be
getting that somewhere. Hopefully it's the right information and
not just media and production generated hype.
