Reality Check:

Did reading this post make anybody else do a Homer Simpson and
go, "D'oh!"

>Gordon thinks it was possibly part of a Russian space probe.

If Gordon thinks it was all a part of the recovery of a Russian
space probe... then what was the point of this whole exercise?

Am I misreading this statement from Gordon somehow? Is it a
misquote? I thought that _he_ thought that it was a UFO.
(Homina, homina, homina.)

Hey man, I don't want to criticize CFI/Sci-Fi channel too much.
In spite of the piss-poor UFO-related programming, and now this
apparent waste of time and resources, they -have- put together a
'rapid response' team to conduct preliminary investigation into
UFO reports, and they are funding a wonderful website that is
being worked on as we speak by my trusted and respected buddy,
Steven Kaeser. (I'll let him say more about this new website
when he's ready to.) So, I really don't want to completely
dismiss the efforts being made by CFI and the Sci-Fi channel
people.

But for crying out loud, why all the fuss if the main
investigator suspected that it was a Russian probe all along!
Again if I'm missing something here. I await
correction/education on the matter.
