Before we start spreading this rumor here, I quietly did some
checking into this awhile back and am now very skeptical of this
story.  One example of what I found came from Michael Lindemann
when he and I traded information about it. He said in an e-mail

"My good friend and colleague Salley Rayl has interviewed
Musgrave several times and spent time with him, face to face, as
recently as last week. I asked her about this alleged statement
of Story's concerning the greys. While she has not asked him
point blank about the greys, she told me that she is completely
certain he would NOT make any statement such as "These guys are
real... I guarantee it."

Musgrave DOES firmly believe in intelligent life in space,
however. At some point, I hope to interview him, and I will ask
him to be as specific as possible about who or what he thinks is
out there"

-end quote

I think this caller's story amounted to little more than wishful
thinking rather than fact.
