I responded to this piece of crap yesterday with the following.


To whom it may concern.

I offered Macleans an article on this phenomenon with some
actual meat on it unlike this flippant nonsense, "The truth is,
they're not really out there" but no one was interested; yet you
print tripe such as this. Very safe stuff and just pro-nutball
enough, with the proper sprinkling of aliens and alien
visitations mentioned. Never heard of Scott Feschuk however he
somehow has become an expert overnight and was thereby deemed
fit to comment on something he knows nothing about. His
resulting article - and many others previously penned by others
- is responsible for this problem; "even late-night, anonymous
telephone calls that are obviously reports of airplanes or
planets should be rightly logged as UFO reports."

I'm no expert on the so-called alien visitation [known as the
abduction phenomenon] but to a person any abduction cases related
by reporters of their personal abduction experiences to myself
and others have been with the understanding that they too remain
anonymous. This holds true of police officers and military
officers, high ranking politicians and civil servants and others
in science, engineering and the aerospace industry. But I suppose
you thought the abduction phenomenon was reported only by those
who are still ignorant enough to believe that man descended from
Adam and Eve. And so they do - as well.

I pretty much limit myself to the investigation of pilot, chiefly
airline pilot, reports of near misses with these Unidentified
Anomalous Phenomenon whereas it impinges on flight safety. But I
get phone and email solicitations from people in all areas of the
public arena looking for answers as to what's happening to them.
I can't help them other than to refer them to the literature or
to those who deal with this on a daily basis. Often it's a help
just to listen to their problem and not pass judgment.

Whichever editor reads this, glance around the area where you
work. If you see ten people, there's a better than 90 percent
chance that one of them has experienced this phenomenon-but they
aren't going to tell you about it! Of course it could be yourself.
