John & all interested,

As I just mentioned privately to another poster to this List,
the Arabs have been aware of this phenomenon for a lot longer
than we johnny-come-lately ufologists.  They call these folks
the "Jinn".  Their legal status is even recognized in Arabic law.
For an interesting web page on them, please see the following
web page (not mine) ...


I would like to use your article in Filer's Files.  Please let
me know if I may.  Naturally you would receive credit for your
fine work.
