Theo and List,

I am at a loss to understand what you are talking about here.

It is one of the best documented facts that Lt. Water Haut
issued a press release, on a direct order from Col. Blanchard,
at the end of the morning of July 8, 1947, announcing the
discovery and retrieval of a crashed disc.

Then, there was a second press release in the evening, from Gen.
Ramey in Fort Worth, announcing the confusion with a weather
balloon. Sorry: your memory must be a little confused.

Sorry again. The officers at the atomic bomber base would have
been even worse than Laurel and Hardy to make such a blunder and
announce it to the world.
