Not a bit, every word to the purpose, and you answered all my
questions. Thankyou _very much_.

Only one small quibble:

From this discussion, yes. Not from the account in the book (see
pages 112-113). I wasn't trying to avoid that issue; addressing
the message to you, I rather coarsely neglected the bizarre and
unaccountable possibility that not everyone on the list would
have read the published version.

Not absolutely exactly like, as I recall, but sufficiently
related to be provocative. Also (from memory) the symbols vary
slightly from culture to culture. I will, when crunched foot
lets me mince a trifle less effetely into the library - from
where I have lately been hearing highly suspect sounds emitted
by Brother TimeSpoke during my enforced absence, but that is
another story - dig out some examples and send them to you.

Of course, I wonder now what circumstances obtained (according
to their recollections) when Budd's other subjects came upon
this script. Just have to wait that one out, I guess.

It would mean that I'd distribute arms to every able bodied man,
shout "Revert to Plan A!", "Women and children first!" and (more
sombrely) "The drums, Carruthers! The drums!" and nail the
colors to the mast. I didn't get to be 33rd Degree whoops Duke
of Mendoza without knowing how to repel a few boarders, what?

Then, after a few pink gins and realizing nothing was about to
happen soon, I might recall that Plan A says common symbolism
among abductees across a range of investigators is at least
suggestive of something happening in the brain wiring. And Plan
B says reported symbolisms being common only to specific
investigators suggests investigator effect. But still, let's see
if there are more scripts out there first, not to mention try to
analyse the one we know exists.

Believe me, none of 239 Mtn Bgde bends over to pick anything up.
Come to that, they don't drop anything, either. These girls are
