Lan,

As said by Larry Warren at the Disclosure Project, National
Press Club, Washington, " The UFO issue of is really a civil
rights issue." That is why the marriage of legal actions and
television productions is the perfect exercise in maintaining
precious American civil liberties for freedom of speech, and a
liberty and right to know (of the great mysteries before the
human race).

The Sci-fi Channel will protect its interest once they establish
their new trend and their viewers make their show of support,
for which then advertisers will get on the bandwagon increasing
the profits for the network. If the network is making money, it
would be very difficult to deny programming. Since the majority
of Americans have at least some interest in this topic, we can
bet that as the Sci-fi Channel's coverage of their lawsuit
expands the public will indeed follow the proceedings very
intently.

The momentum will not be lost if concrete evidence or
documentation can arise out of the proceedings. As well, the
public will learn about how most of the documentation, two full
boxes, were lost. The public will  conclude a pattern of
stonewalling by NASA and other agencies. This helps to build the
foundation of evidence. Evidence is often found in the trail of
a coverup, and this becomes dramatic material for a television
audience. Networks like CourtTV have become very profitable, the
message being people like watching legal programming. UFO
politics brings legal programming to yet another level. We all
will be watching.

Reality Television is coming-of-age. this is a fantastic trend
in media where the citizen or citizens group can participate.
Reality Television will evolve to cover more significant issues
of our time, that is my prediction.

I have been asking you, Lan, for quite some time to be one of
these good American citizens and to present a case for which the
public may conduct a Data Quality Act inquiry based on plausible
foundation, and which only a researcher like you could provide.
You kick and scream in countless e-mails on many lists how you
would like to see fairer process involved in scientific
discovery. I am providing you with suggestions how you can be
truly important in this process.I feel you should become more
involved with the media and real-time events (more than just
publishing on the Internet) You speak of worries that the media
will overshadow investigations and disclosure. well then, I
challenge you to put it to the test and give it your best shot.

Choose one good Data Quality Act inquiry to pursue based on your
best research concerning Mars photographic anomalies. There are
many now in NASA  who would support an honest effort for SETI
Research.  Attitudes are now changing within the agency. I do
not believe you ever be harassed at the Johnson Space Center for
a Data Quality Act inquiry.  This is not a bona fide lawsuit, it
is merely a platform for which to question data  and give data
integrity. This will not harm NASA but will in fact enhance the
scientific stature of the agency.

I do hope you respond to these ideas.


Very Truly Yours,
