Grant and fellow Listerions,

I just finished reading the above quoted article and I did not
want to burden our beloved EBK with reposting chapter one of
this suspenseful, sensational story. I quoted the above warning
from after the story while wondering, since the word is out,
whether the paranormal posse and hordes of curiosity seekers
will descend on the ranch, forcing the above warning to be
posted on the road leading to this ranch and its neighbors with
large block lettering proclaiming DEADLY FORCE AUTHORIZED! ala
Area 51.

I honestly don't know what to think of George Knapp's story. He
sure has a smooth way of telling fantastic stories. I first
heard and saw him on KLAS TV when Bob Lazar was launched to the
public. He also had 20 or so supporting statements from people
who worked at Area 51 who did not want to be identified = no way
to verify his sources. Bob Lazar fell, due to his own lack of

George is one engaging storyteller, as we all know. In past
years I would hear him talk and also have a few chats with him
in person. They have been good experiences, the last at our
MUFON LA chapter a few years ago. He had some very powerful
things to say that he had learned from his research in Russia. I
never checked whether other researchers in Russian UFOlogy such
as Dick Haines or Paul Stonehill concurred with Knapp's
analysis. I don't think we discussed it on this list back then.
Not long ago I watched my video of that talk and I would still
like to know the accuracy of his claims.

But this is the mysterious Gorman ranch. I remember about the
first mutes there and I remember being excited that it was
purchased by Bigelow for the serious study of muteness. Instead
of me learning more about cattle mutilations, a cloud of
muteness withheld research data and caused people to wonder
about the mysterious shroud of secrecy of the ranch and the
newly formed NIDS.

What am I to make of George Knapp's story ? It is beyond my
imagination that what he claims is plaguing that ranch and being
studied by Colm Kelleher. Is there anything _not_ seen there?

Of course, if true, Gorman made two serious mistakes.

#1 = Learn the history. I learned from buying mountain property
in California that if I were shown a property that interested me
to not only check the property records but to ask the neighbors
if they had anything that they wanted to say regarding the
property. I would certainly ask a lot of questions if the
property I was shown had all kinds of extra bolt locks and
fortifications that it seemed to need for security. Something is
wrong with this picture.

#2 = Go while the going is good. The Gormans allegedly suffered
on that property. Along comes Bigelow who offers to buy the land
and gets the Gorman family to stay at the property as caretakers
of suffering more of the same horrors?

I am getting the smell of musk. Something is not Kosher here.
The fresh meat smells like rotten meat. Where is the beef? Will
George Knapp survive in the chair and bring us chapter two, the
confirmation and the conclusion from the weirdest ranch I ever
heard of? Is this story the script George Knapp proposed for a
new reality TV show?

Stay tuned, don't change that dial,
