This message has been altered. I worked very hard to get it to
conform to the 70 character rule, which requires taking it out
AOL's mailer and putting it into a text editor. Hope it turned
out ok. I tried to twist as many of Theresa's words as possible.

HI Theresa,

Welcome home. A lot was happening as you were boarding the plane for the
Nevada... I held my response until you were hopefully back at home safely.

Well, I'm glad you cleared up THAT confusion. Thanks for the complement.

That would probably be a good question for the Roswell people, like Kevin
Randle and Stanton. I'm not an expert on Roswell by any means and there
certainly seems to be a wide variety of ways of telling the story.

I think that is a pretty good unwritten rule, don't you? I think claimants
should offer something to back up what they are saying. Ray hasn't offered
much to back up his claim about having the film of an alien autopsy. Simple
questions with simple answers would suffice. Like who did the film to video
transfer. You know, Ray has been very protective of the cameraman but now we
learn that he has sold the cameraman's interview to the Japanese. What's the
story with that?

I can't speak for what Four Winds Productions did. And McGovern did say that
all medical procedures were filmed in color. But what we don't really know is
what he meant by "all." That sounds kind of odd, I know, but I know for a
fact that it was NOT only McGovern who made the claim about medical footage
done in color. Gibson and Longo have both said it as well. Could it be that
is what they did and they were speaking from their experience. What do you
think? Probably wouldn't hurt to try to clear this up.

I'll send you my fax number in a private email or would you rather put it in
some sort of file. I am not even close to an expert on these things but I
would be happy to take a look at it and see if I might be able to tell you
who might be of help.

So tell us, how was the conference? I was there last year (only for a day or
two though) and it was certainly an experience that I won't long forget. <g>

When you find a balanced conference, let us know. <g>
