Listers, Stan and Michael,

Stan makes an excellent case for the various stroke jobs and
cunning liars that have been around for years.

I recall that one of the more serious Roswell 'witnesses' (I
don't recall the name at this instant) who told various stories
over the years and was taken very seriously, then was discovered
to have been telling bogus tales. Apparently he told them face to
face, very convincingly, over the years. I don't recall if it was
the famous "jewell encrusted helmet" story-teller, but there have
been a number of those around.

Witnesses telling stories should be checked out _before_
repeating the tale all over the Internet, Coast-to-Coast, and
other venues. Look at the Dan Burisch story that got traction
until a journalist checked into his back ground, found a
bankruptcy and other problem issues... including employment and
others. Pretty well everybody that promoted him and his story as
gospel truth, never to be doubted, has pretty much backed away
from him and the story.

Don't forget the 'top drawer' 'deep throat', 'intelligence'
community source who spewed the tale about ETs landing on a
mountain top in Arizona. The landing didn't happen, but none the
less the gulliable bought into it... until the next day.

You had the one dude who spent many, many months telling stories
how ET radio waves would bathe the earth in January of 1997 and
we would start a new day for humanity, blah, blah, blah. It
didn't happen, but the people whose ears were pricked by the
tale bought it hook line and sinker until it failed, then nobody
wanted to talk about it.

Don't forget all the Y2K doom and gloomists who were so utterly
convinced of disaster that they had all these communitys in
remote areas, where all the Y2K disaster believers could get
homes and prepare for the end etc etc. It didn't happen, and
that fact was apparent by January 1 2000, but none the less
people bought the tales and stories for 6 years previously.

Stan is correct that these stories and people should be check
out. I might add _before_ they get told all over the Internet
and talk radio.
