Good Day Lan,

As I mentioned to Grinspoon, in the event I was taking him out
of context, I apolologised in advance, as I was critiquing a
snippet of his work; he in fact pointed out that I was indeed
taking him out of context and explained, "Of course UFOs are
real.  I am using shorthand for a cultural mindset, which might
bother you less when you read the many chapters of surrounding
context." In the end, he's sending me a copy of his book for
review--to which I will give my honest opinion, in general, as
well as in regards to Ufology.
