I think the report, cautiously worded as one should expect, will
stand on its own.

What is surprising and welcome for me is the open press and
media coverage.

For example, the San Jose (Calif.) Mercury devoted 36
column-inches to the report, and not tongue-in-cheek! The
Mercury has a huge circulation in and around the southern San
Francisco Bay Area. It is quite literally the newspaper of
"Silicon Valley"

The Mercury almost never publishes UFO stories of any kind.

The first 8 column-inches were on the front page, right beneath
the headline story about Clinton making speeches in China!

The other 28 inches went right to the back page of the front
section, while the rest of the "Clinton Challenges Students"
article got tucked inside (page 7A next to an electronics
components ads).

Both articles got about the same amount of print.

I think this is important. Maybe a few more scientists and high
quality witnesses will be less disinclined to come forward.

Best wishes
