Strangely, for it to work my own idiosyncratic understanding of
the abduction phenomenon does not require the inclusion of child
molesters and Mideastern tyrants (and, coming down the pike at
any moment, serial killers and Nazis). But then, what would I
know? I'm one of those na=EFve souls who still think words are
actually supposed to _mean_ something.

Soon open for discussion:

Should abduction researchers be subject to the death penalty, or
merely sent for prolonged stays at Gitmo?

Opinions welcome.
