Dr. Clark was rushed onto the stage to tell his tale and then whisked out a back door to a car that was waiting for him to take him to the airport. Reporters and others were told to wait at the front of the building while he was being spirited away, which told me how much the information was worth. If they'd found something substantial that they could support with evidence, why run and hide after you provide an outline. The group in the audience was a veritable who's who of ufology, and they were left shaking their heads for the most part. That wasn't ufology's finest hour, and IMO you probably don't want to start a[nother] long conversation on Dr. Leir and his implants. Steve [See the List Archive --ebk] Listen to 'Strange Days...
