Dear Bob and James:

A big snip and a small point ( below )

Now that you mention it, I've crossed New Mexico on a number of
routes, and I have _never_ seen a barn there. I'm sure there are
some barns, but they would stick out like a sore thumb; most
especially in the virtually deserted nearly Mars like high
desert between Corona and Roswell, NM.

If Santilli really believed in his own films, he would have them
independently authenticated by whatever means necessary to
convince himself and the world at large.

Compelling evidence of alien activities may well exist
somewhere, but I'm not going to waste any more time on the likes
of Santilli.

Best wishes

PS: By coincidence, the two times I stopped in Roswell were both
Sunday evenings .. separated by an interval of almost exactly
twenty years! Each time I asked where I could get a beer, and
some kid working at a burger joint looked as puzzled as if I had
asked for directions to the Eiffel Tower.

Is Roswell a dry city, or is Chaves County dry?

Is Sunday a "dry day" in NM, as in South Carolina, Wyoming
and certain other bible thumping states?

Did I chance upon the two most clueless kids west of Memphis?

Maybe the first "burger-meister" was the father of the second.

The "Land of Enchantment" is full of coincidences.

I have an oddly similar Nevada story, in case anyone is
