Hello Stuart,

Right, maybe should've said 'proxy/tool of government' - folk
can be literal-minded.

A method which works where there's mystery and skullduggery is
like checking a pool in the forest to find a) does it have a
source? and b) where is the alligator? With a very long pole and
a secure stand, you probe and stir up the bottom. Where the mud
swirls instead of settling - there's your source stream. And
where the end of the pole gets bitten off - there's your

This is a similar exercise - and I'm watching for the alligator.

Even so, those two 'speculative' conclusions seem to fit the
facts and SETI behavior patterns better than most alternatives.
