Was sitting here watching endless UFO documentaries and chatting with my old team from the Parascope Magazine forum that was on AOL. That forum was the forerunner of the web based UFO and paranormal and conspiracy theory set and we got the chance to interview and chat live with many UFOlogists on this list. Even Art Bell was a member of our staff back then. I then realized that in the past 15 years or so there are now umpteen numbers of UFO websites, blogs, forums, eyewitness reports, documents, pictures and videos that seem to come out by the barrel full each week. With the TV shows like Bill Birnes' UFO Hunters and more, it is a safe conclusion that the evidence gathered over the past 60 years and most notably the evidence gathered regarding UFOs over the past 15 years is now to the point of hyper saturation. Although there is no conclusive proof of extraterrestrial visitation, yet people are now realizing that jumping to the conclusion of associating any UFO sighting with ETs, things seem to be clearing up especially in the media. I say this because many of my former editors and reporters I worked with in the news media are now a lot softer regarding UFOs and are admitting for the first time why they didn't cover the issue as thorough as they should have back in the day. The reasons we already know, but getting them from the horse's mouth is different. Now they can't back away from the volume of evidence gathered and their apprehension I'd say was justified considering what they were up against. I'd mentioned before on this list that I was personally at several mass sightings where many professional and award winning journalists were present. Now that they've gotten on in years they're asking questions and came to me for answers. I point them to the books of many of you on this list. Also, surprisingly the dwindling number of WWII vets who were at UFO incidents is bringing the ones I know, family and friends to a point where they're watching the documentaries and visiting the websites and blogs. The common factor I've found is that the journalists, vets, and witnesses who kept their mouths shut feel betrayed at the way the US government and media handled the basic life issues such as banking, mortgages, health care, jobs. They feel those who were charged with watchdogging us failed miserably and with many losing their homes and about to lose more, they are stumped as to how things got this bad. I tell them it's very simple. They kept their mouths shut and didn't confront problems when they had the opportunity. They spent more time the past decade covering celebrity scandals and mishaps instead of doing what investigators should have been doing which was using their skills to out corruption instead of following stimulus response leadership that led to our present economic distress. I'm fortunate I steered clear and stood my ground. However I'm watching people with masters degrees and decades of working in news, or having fought decisive battles in war losing their homes left and right as gas prices are kicking them in the teeth too. Another surprise came from some retired military who went into science and worked on many systems we the public don't know about. They're upset that we don't have alternate energy solutions and better technologies for better life issues as they confess we've had them since the 1950s! They're wondering when the good stuff is going to come out. Now when I send these people to the gathered UFO evidence of the past 15 years they're overwhelmed. They can't believe how much there is. Everyone on this list and others in UFOlogy should pat yourselves on the back for getting the information out there. So again, do we need more evidence? We've got so much that pinpoints the issue and some of the best stuff was from the golden age of UFOlogy. What's coming out now validates what was presented by people like Keyhoe and the other pioneers in the field. Evidence we've got, a massive public forum, global forum, is what is needed. Sure the US government is going to be the last place we should look but other countries such as the UK could open up a televised forum attended by officials and many of you here to present to the public what has transpired, who blocked it, and why they're so scared to discuss the matter. We're way past the time of presenting to the public on a mainstream level what has been gathered. With the upheaval in the Middle East where governments themselves are being toppled via the power of Facebook, it's not a far stretch that a unified effort could work. Me, I'm not going to ask the US government, it would be a waste of my time nor my congressman or senator. They're too busy trying to cover their own butts from the scandals they're in.
