Dennis -- relax!

I didn't say there couldn't be objections to Dave's scenario. I
didn't even say I supported it.

Joseph Polanik (one of the clearest thinkers here, in my view)
had said he found the aliens' reported behavior bizarre. All I
did was point out that there's a theory to account for it. End
of story. What we make of that theory -- and even whether the
aliens do exhibit that behavior, or whether they're here at all
-- was way beyond the scope of my very simple remark.

Ah. At last something that's related to what I said.

Maybe the aliens want to shit, pee, eat, and screw. These are
delightful activities, especially the last two. Maybe they're
breeding hybrids because -- that creaking you hear is the sound
of an ancient science-fiction hypothesis being dragged into view
once more, something I'm sure I read in dozens of stories --
their race has become too cerebral to survive.

The thing you want to remember, Dennis, is that all this is
speculation, quite harmless if not taken too seriously.
