Subject: Sci-Fi Channel's Roswell Program

I'm very glad I watched it. I almost didn't watch it due to the
early bad press, as published here. It's the best Roswell
program I can recall ever seeing on television!

Kudos and thank-you's to all involved (including the producers),
and the participants from this List! Well done!

And congratulations to the Project Archeologist for identifying
the remains of a 10-year-old, real weather balloon in about 1.3
seconds. If you multiply his familiarity with weather balloons
(0.1??) by 1.3 seconds, you get a Speed of Recognition Factor
(SRF) of 0.13... If he'd seen several crashed weather balloons
in the past, the familiarity factor might be 1, giving him an
SRF of 1 x 1.3 = 1.3....

Not bad for a University Prof who digs holes in the ground and
sifts dirt for a living. Dang it. Where was he when Brazel,
Marcel, Cavett, Blanchard and Ramey could _really_ have used his
savant-like talents?

And if anyone brings up the subject of "balance" (Lawdy, don't
get me started), let me say this:

1. There was some "balance" supplied by Karl Pflock and the
totally discredited Charles Moore, as well as a smattering of
items from the Air Force's Roswell comic books.

2. Balance is not required. When they pass some law requiring
NASA to give equal time to loonies from the Flat Earth Society
every time a NASA program is presented, then I'll know the whole
world is unbalanced, and no amount of "balance" will help it
