Hi there John,

Thanks a lot for giving back the List that little touch of
humanity I was starting to miss!

I totally agree that if the fact that some one believes in UFOs
was just a tiny part of the reason they declare that person
"crazy", it would be sad.

Someone's personal belief leading to imprisoning him, now that's
a scenario that most Europeans watch with fear, because of our
history with these things.

If you have an address or something on the guys that raise the
defense-payment for Ford, lemme know, will ya?
