Q: Why did the ufologist cross the road?

A: It's abundantly clear that you didn't read my previous post.
If you had, you would have read the following:

> I wasn't implying that you _had_ crossed the road, or that you
were advocating that anyone else _should_ cross the road. I was
simply asking why some people are so anxious to _encourage_ the
crossing of the road in the first place.

Please do not attribute false motives to me. And it wasn't a
road anyway.

I must question why this whole topic of road-crossing generates
such heated emotions. Could it perhaps be because it threatens
certain of your deeply-felt beliefs concerning your actual
location? Are you perhaps worried that if someone else crossed
the road first that your position would be more exposed?

And what about this statement?

>> I even question the sincerity of those who believe that the
road is crossable.

Don't be so jejune. If you were half as familiar with the
literature of road-crossing as you claim to be, you wouldn't
make statements like that. Many researchers who have been in
this field for decades have compiled abundant evidence that the
road has been crossed over and over again. Or are you possibly
ready to turn the whole affair over to the skeptics who say that
there is no road to cross? Like Bob Todd, perhaps?

b-aaaaaakk-baak-baak. cluck.
