Hi Greg, Hi Errol, Hi All

I thought that I would like to add my tuppence worth here, if you
don't mind. I know nothing of the Betty and Barny Hill case
except what I have read. I never met them, spoke to them or in
any other way had any contact with them, so this is purely my

Is it possible to use the converse side of this? Could it not
have been the writer/producer or whoever who was responsible for
this particular episode to have "seen for himself" (or herself
for all you women out there) an alien with "wraparound eyes that
spoke" which gave that person the idea in the first place? That
would mean that person could have equally seen the same type of
alien that the Hills saw. In which case Kottmeyers theory is
completely out the window.

Just my tuppence worth Greg, however I do agree with your idea
that a serious look into to abductions to see if any media
influence has had an effect is a good one.

        Are you a man or a mouse, come on squeek up!
