Hi, Kelly!

I agree with most of what you are saying except about being
ridiculed. I read an article recently about the thousands and
thousands of applicants that wanted to participate in the
unfortunate abundance of "reality shows" like "Survivor" or
"Mole" or "Temptation Island", "Blind Date" and the like.
Personally, I can't think of anything more embarrassing than
being seen on national television enduring the humiliation that
these shows heap on the participants. On top of this, California
is chock full of ridiculous "fad" clinics and services that
offer everything from high colonics to puppy poop analysis.

The potential embarrassment from reporting a UFO sighting is
more of a myth, I feel, than a real issue. Maybe 40 years ago,
or so; but not in this permissive, "entertainment" based society
where almost anything goes.

While I feel that some people have, indeed, witnessed ET craft,
I think the majority that use embarrassment as an excuse for not
coming forward didn't see squat.


Take care,

Roger
