Bryant of Alexandria, VA Recent Signatures: Henry Lampert, Jr. of Baytown, TX Katharina Wilson of Portland, OR Fox Mulder of Washington, DC Matt Cameron of Vancouver, WA John White of Cheshire, CT Mike Jamieson of Napa, CA Proposed Ufo Ballot Initiative: We, the voting citizens of the state of Arizona [and, eventually, of other similarly empowered states], do hereby direct this state's legislature to issue, forthwith in its customary manner, an OFFICIAL PROCLAMATION, the wording of which shall be: "It is hereby proclaimed that the year 2000 be observed as the Year of UFO Awareness. Because of the federal government's failure to be officially forthcoming about Unidentified Flying Objects, the public remains ill-informed and confused on a matter of potentially great consequence. We therefore urge the U.S. Congress to expeditiously convene open, comprehensive hearings in which government personnel (military, civilian-contract, and agency employees -- active and retired) are permitted to present sworn testimony regarding their personal knowledge of any UFO-related evidence, to be given under immunity by waiver of any applicable security oath or agreement of nondisclosure. This proclamation acknowledges the following facts: (1) The weight of the cumulative evidence -- e.g., eyewitness, electronic-detection, photographic, documentary -- overwhelmingly supports the conclusion of a majority of Americans that some of the reported UFOs represent somebody else's spacecraft; (2) the federal government's handling of the UFO issue has contributed to the public cynicism toward, and general mistrust of, government -- a development injurious to our republic; (3) This initial year of the third millennium affords us a renewed opportunity to explore, assess, and convey every facet of UFO reality."
