Dear Spawn:

Though I'm not quite in your position, I have taken flack for holding
firm to my belief in the absolute reality of my own sightings (and one
very close encounter) which occurred over a three year period (1971-73)
in my hometown of Oak Ridge, TN. ("Atomic City, USA"). Some folks just
can't handle the truth or they're wallowing in a depth of denial that
borders on the pathological. It's tough for them to accept the fact that
humankind ain't necessarily numero uno on the galatic foodchain. And
while I may empathize with their distress, their opinions are
irrelevant, John, and do absolutely nothing to alter the "big picture."

However, you're endeavors HAVE been useful in helping the less myopic of
us out here to bring that vision into a sharper focus. That's why I
would suggest you reconsider you're decision to bailout. Amidst the hue
and cry, real data IS being gathered; the truth is gradually being
uncovered, and let's face it: at this stage of the "invasion," that
awareness may be our only defense.
