Roger,

My father was a TV newsman until he retired. He signed on the
very first TV station in this area and was there nearly 40
years. Before that he was in Radio. He had the courage to cover
the UFO flaps in Wytheville, Virginia, just down the road from
here and went from skeptic to believer from interviewing
ordinary people who had very extra-ordinary experiences.

He was the newsman who dug up and broke the Frances Gary Powers
story when the Soviets shot him down in a U2 spy plane, and he
covered many other sensitive stories over the years.

I asked him about this story of yours and he said "Bull***t!"

Bob
