Your "solution" also has the advantage of being ad hoc, post
facto, and totally gratuitous, not to mention mere wishful
thinking. Just can't give up on a case, can you, even when the
evidence for a hoax stares you in the face. Just more clever
manipulation (or introduction of "confusion") by the ubiquitous,
omniscient, omnipotent aliens. Next thing you know, they'll be
photographing themselves on peoples' camcorders without the
latter being turned on, maybe even without a cassette in the
chamber -- just to confound the skeptics, I suppose. After all,
they can do anything, right? Were they jumping up and down to a
different beat for everyone else who might have been
photographing them at the same time, or did they just dictate
that they would be filmed by only one person in Mexico City (with
a population of about 14 million or so) at a time?

You're a real piece of work, Jim. Ever thought about having
yourself checked for an implant -- or a brain transplant?
