Bob,

If you have any data  on Corso, why not put it on the table?

I said nothing about your saying anything about Pica or elite
type.

Why not also put on the table how many visits you have made to
Archives and how many visits to New Mexico and how many Roswell
witnesses to whom you have talked?

Last I heard the number for at least the first 2 was zero.
Armchairs are indeed comfortable.

Membership in the NSC is determined by law.

I do appreciate your demonstrating your illogicality and bias.

With regard to your research skills, just how many papers have
you published in scientific journals?
