Ahem, you are so right- perhaps I should have said discussing
something like "auto mechanics"  a shot carburetor, is a shot
carburetor and at least people don't look at you like you are
2 sandwiches short of a picnic when you discuss them.

I just knew I should have thrown in *Open Minded* non-believer,
which is what I really meant. Someone who is basically uninformed
about the subject (are there such people?). I just didn't know
exactly how to phrase it. Like you, I am far past that point and
its impossible for me to turn the clock back mentally to when I
was. Sometimes I am TOO accepting of UFO information which makes
me less critical when I watch those shows.

ONLY about UFOs Alfred.....the political stuff I would
characterize as vote-seeking rather than truth seeking, _worlds_
of difference there eh? <g>
