Like that's never been done before. It didn't bother you any when
I sent you those Japan sightings. Thanks incidentally for your

Saw it where, on a grainy, scanned image?

Nobody suggested you were Drew, but the witnesses take enough
crap as it is. They at least deserve a BIT of an investigation
before being jumped on.

Now that's a cheap shot and you know it. Spending four years on
this investigation, and Chris Styles five and a half is hardly
just an account by fisherman Jones watching pigs flying some
craft. Apparently you and others ignored this one when it was
right in your face, even in the Condon report. It appears as well
that you have continued to ignore it if that foolishness is all
you can come up with.
