These are two very good questions that I don't know how to
answer.  If you can pry any information out of MUFON, by all
means, go ahead.  It would be certainly appreciated that there
would be some idea of the extent that abductions occur.  Then we
could vote on it as being the correct number of jelly beans in
the cookie jar.

Take care for now,
