Hello Elaine, hi All,

You have had access to much more information on the case than we
have. It's not important to air anymore of Johns' laundry in a
public forum either. Don't feel as if you have to answer for

The fact that he has been commited to a mental hospital
(although questionable to some of us due to the 'nature' of
Johns' interests) is not beyond the reach of reason. Some of us
just wanted to make sure that this guy wasn't being "railroaded"
because of his interest/belief in UFOs.

Don't misread that concern for a peer as us giving you more
guff. It's not. (Als' "passion" aside! <G>) Thank you for
responding and updating us on the case. I published his (John
Fords') address, so if anyone needs more information or wishes
to follow up on the case they can write to -him- and ask him


John Velez, Webmaster IF-AIC
