Cheap indeed - mental %$#@!#&(*&% is more like it.  Put the
prose-loving commie pinko, spliff-toking, Wisdom of Insecurity,
dis-information specialists of the alien advance force in their

(- ahem -) I've been wondering for some time what the real motive
underlying the protestations of the rabid "non-ETHers" could be,
and I think I've finally figured it out.  IF you can explain, not
the vehicles (red herring that masks the fearfulness underlying
this position), but the occupants, as solely multi-dimensonal
entities, and maintain that they've always been around as
fairies, wights, sprites, gnomes, demons, spirits, or whatever,
THEN you can believe that our tomorrows will be much like our
todays, and the millenia of yesterdays.  This hypothesis frees
you of the burden of assimilating impending CHANGE.  You can
laugh at the worries of Dave Jacobs, ignore the growing number of
individuals coming forward with abduction experiences, and
continue to believe that since there are no ETs, we will not be
troubled, because after all, the fairies didn't cause the
collapse of Celtic society, did they?  You can believe that this
planet will just keep rolling along for centuries with no major
unforeseen disruptions to its prime species, the crown of
creation, from those outside of our planet and (the kicker) Out
of Our Control!  GOTCHA!

Ok, flame on if you like.
