Hi Jerry.

Actually, I never saw myself interviewing Shirley. I only
interviewed a few stars in my whole UFO "career", although I met
many who are interested in UFOs. One of the artists I
interviewed was Jos=E9 Ramalho, a very popular musician in Brazil,
with a vast repertory:

"Flying Saucers Really Got Me Concerned", is a part of one of
the songs about the UFO Phenomena that he sings. He has many
others, some very particular and interesting. And popular.

You know, I concentrate my activities in interviewing other
types of people, like I did with so many top ranking government
officers and military in Brazil, such as a few generals, some
former ministers etc.

So it was a (good) surprise that I got contacted by Shirley's
people and that she wanted to know more about UFOs in my
country. I look forward to meeting and interviewing her (I
almost had a chance to do so with Dan Aykroyd).

And since I had this opportunity confirmed with Shirley, last
week, I started doing my homework and I have gone through a
great number of websites with all sorts of info about her as a
person, as an actress, as an author, about her activist role in
several areas etc, and also about her UFO statements and what
people in this area think of them etc.

I must say that, so far, among the info that I got about her,
yours isn't majority, while shared with several people. Of
course I will take it in consideration, thank you. I really
appreciate all sorts of views about her from Listers to get
better prepared to meet and interview the lady.

Have a great Sunday.


A. J.
