Quick comment.  I've been more than slightly skeptical of the
whole Roswell Photo Interpretation team hyperbole.  Of course,
the idea is kind of fun, especially reports of memos offering
tantalizing details, a time capsule of the great mythological
'first coming'.

In the past I found it rather hysterical that the rhetoric from
James Bond Johnson included statements like "can clearly be
seen", in reference to blobs, blurs, and splotches. Most of his
proffered evidence has compelled me to offer Mr. Johnson a gift
certificate to Lenscrafters.

So, in that light, I tried a little experiment with the recent
image attachment which purported to include the eerie statement
about "the victims."  All I saw when I downloaded the image at
first, were the murder mystery letters cut-out.  With a great
deal of squinting I finally managed to imagine that there was in

fact a vague correlation between the two.

I then had my boss come into my office, and covered up
everything but the smudgecicles.  I asked him, cold, "What does
that say?"  He took a few seconds and then read the first half
of the sentence exactly!

I worthwhile experiment, I was surprised at the results.  I
guess the USAF is going to have to redress that whole "victims"
issue in their next report, due 50 years hence. <g>
