As anyone who knows me well will tell you, I am honest and not
shy about expressing my opinions. I don't expect everyone to
agree with me, and my mind is not closed to other ideas and

Like anyone else, I like it when I am right, but am willing to
admit it when I am wrong. So far I have seen nothing to make me
think that I am wrong about Roswell.

They really should have used a crashed B-29 as a cover story.
There were some crashes, and that would have worked a lot better
than this absurd balloon concoction they came up with. You are
right, the most important point is that everyone involved from
Brazel on to Ramey knew damned well what crashed balloons looked
like, and this did not look like one.
