Kiviat worked for Unsolved Mysteries some years ago and then set
up his own company in 1995 and produced the Alien Autopsy TV
show. He did the "Best Video Evidence" last summer andis coming
out with another which will "surprise" all the believers, I am
told. (I have not seen his latest effort.)

Yes, sad but true. The propoer response is that of Stanton
Friedman: have a large "grey basket" in which you store
sightings or information for which there is..... (to borrow a
phrase from Special Report #14)..."Insufficient Evidence" to
conclude one way or another.

Don't know what you mean by "making business". This analysis
is not associated with any money for me or Sainio. All the $$
eventually went through the Elders to Maussan, so far as I can
tell.

HA HA HA. This form certainly has a familiar sort of "ring" to
it.
