I was not questioning the reporter's term.

I am stating that everybody now thinks in terms
of ET craft whenever the term UFO is stated. I am simply saying
UFO no longer means Unidentified Flying Object but ET craft.
So, I think it is time to say what is meant.

_Stuff in the the sky_ would end up having the the same meaning
as UFOs. I like unidentified air planes (UAP).

Ah, but William, we get to define what we mean because we are
the ones discussing the subject.
