Stan, Jerry, Terry,

It's amazing the milage that Andy gets out of nothing. But he
likely had a sympathetic ear at the London Observer. I've not
seen any reduction in the interest level of the general public
when it comes to the UFO phenomenon. Quite the opposite. Wishful
thinking on Andy Roberts' part? But wishing doesn't make it so.

But at least Mark Townsend went to bed that night feeling better
about himself... slept the sleep of the self-righteous. The kind
of sleep only the innocent and the ignorant can enjoy.
