Right on Don. It is truly amazing that the proponents of the
false doctrine that "Since most sightings can be explained, all
can" aren't aware of the fact that gold ore is worth mining if
it has 10 grams of gold per million grams of ore. They choose
the dross. Most of us with any sense would choose the gold.
