Couldn't agree more, Don.

My own position on UFOs is that we need to do better science.
The above example isn't. What really annoys me is that the
promulgators of this stuff are the same people who chant the
"Occam's Razor" mantra at every opportunity.

I don't know what Arnold saw that day, but to say he saw meteors
is about as pathetic an excuse for science as I've ever seen.
