You "think", but you are wrong. Again. It is Dr Leir who told,
in his 1998 book The Aliens and the Scalpel, the stupid mistake
in the press about his name - see pages 147 and 148. And it's you
who just named him Clark in your message. But I see you also
used his full name!

There is a long tradition of scientists laughing at UFOs and

Recently again, in a well known, trendy French magazine, Le
Nouvel Observateur, our very mediatic astronomer Andre Brahic
said that no scientist, today, pays any attention to UFOs.
