The thing that stands out is how old these cases are, the latest
a mere 28 years ago. I'm not implying anything by that, but it
does seem strange considering all the razzmatazz we currently

Anyway, out of all of these cases what is the most compelling
physical evidence available? Did any of these witnesses produce
photographs, or report physiological effects that were confirmed
later by doctors, etc?

Or are they purely witness accounts? If that's the case, why are
these accounts more compelling to you than, say, a CSETI lights-
fest, resulting in a "near-landing" of a "metallic structured

Re. 4... sounds interesting. Can you or anyone forward more

Re. 5... 'PA Photo' What does this mean? That the image
eventually ended up with the PA library? Where can I get easy
access to this image... do you have a scan of it that you can
send for me to see?

Re. 8... What exactly did the witnesses report the beings as

Genuinely interested. I'd save you the trouble of telling me to
"read the literature" by doing it, except that I have a pile of
books to read on other, perhaps more pressing matters. I'm sure
you understand.

As an aside, all the hoo-ha about the so-called Sheffield
'incident' makes me wonder about how that might read in 28
years. Judging from the sudden upsurge in private messages
arriving in my inbox after my raising a question here, it seems
its main proponent, Max Burns, is intent on ensuring the story
doesn't die, probably 'til long after David Clarke has moved on
(if he hasn't already).

See what I'm getting at here? Even the hokiest stories have a
way of being the most persistent...

Excuse my ignorance - but wasn't that the French farmer with, if
I recall correctly, the lavender field; an early crop circle
case? That relevant book on the shelf over there is way out of
reach, so I may be wrong on this.

Thanks Mark,
