If the combine an infinite Universe with the law of averages, you
probably ARE the King AND the Queen of England in some distant
places, but that's the danger of playing with statistics.

I seem to recall that the "4 million" figure was originally given
as a reference to the projected number of abductees worldwide,
and not just to the U.S.  But, it would be interesting to see who
had originally come up with that projection and what it was based
on.  I have seen at least one analysis conducted that questioned
the number of aliens and craft that it would take to accomplish
the large number that had been projected, and while the number
was high, it wasn't beyond the scope of reason (whatever that
means in this genre).

However, in the end it is only a projection based on a number of
annecdotal "knowns" and speculative "unknowns".

Perhaps someone can write a good book on this subject, but they
should target their audiance well.
