Hi Eleanor, Yup, didn't mention that. There is the chance it started out 'for real', as Drake/Sagan et al seemed genuine early on, only later getting swallowed up by `the system'. Which might account for that radical change in Sagan - from early honesty and open-mindedness to later cynical (and sometimes unscientifically `abusive') behaviour and writings. That change has always worried/intrigued me. Cheers Ray D Listen to 'Strange Days...
