As any pelican whose ancestor was flying the Dorset sky on
December 8, 1733, can tell you by often-repeated oral tradition,
there was nothing extraordinary in the sky on that day. The
dorset man had simply been watching too many TV shows featuring
UFO reports and reading too many books by those wealthy pro-UFO
writers.
