Personally I am not that impressed with the so called rods
however I do realize that some people breathlessly await the
next rods video.

What would be interesting is a side by side comparison shot in
so called New Mexico rod country of rods with both a 16mm camera
and a digital video, and an analog video. One suspects that the
so called Rods would only be visible in the video camera. One
also suspects that when that might happen (if it ever did) we
would hear elaborate tales and stories about how the rods,
moving at 100 million miles per hour are only visible in the
video frames blah blah blah.

As to coverage in UFO Mag, lets be fair. Some people aren't into
Cattle Mutilations, yet articles may appear, some people aren't
into abductions, yet articles may appear, some people aren't
into super secret aircraft, yet articles appear. Some people
don't believe in crop circles, yet articles may appear. The
point of a monthly magazine is not to appear only to those who
believe in Cattle mutilations that happen at 8:34 PM on Saturday
nights. The point is to have sufficently interesting articles
about the many facets of UFO and UFO releated research and
