You have opened my eyes. I see it too, now! Don Berliner taking
me to a German beer hall in Washington, D. C. And that
remarkably beautiful 'volunteer' who used to come to the NICAP
office to work all the time. Breakfast with her a couple of
times, maybe she spiked my coffee... It's just like you said.

I never suspected that the beer was spiked. Stories about Julian
Hennessey and the worming his way into the secret caches of the
Air Ministry. Once the seeds had been planted, nurishing them by
showing you all those files at NICAP, but with a copy of
Scully's book casually placed within sight on the table with the
cover drawing of the half-clad frightened females looking
skyward.  Day after day the same thing slowly taking over all

Berliner's cladestine meetings at the Pentagon until he came
back with the Project Grudge/Blue Book reports. Sharing out of
this booty, capped at the end of the day with more "beer."

Isabel Davis with her cats, uh familiars. Did you notice that
all these people now have have cats? Dick Hall, Ted Bloecher,
etc., etc. ET only know what this cabel is up to. There it
is... slipping once out again.

Dick Hall presiding over the whole thing - The Puppet Master.

Lynn Cateo coming over from the Library of Congress probably was
the final master stroke. All reason banished to the mental
hinterlands with the vaguely recalled memories of logic and
rules of evidence.

The only thing I wanted to do was find out about ball lightning.
Just a little information on plasma physics, and instead I
became entangled in a web of of ETH and all its destructive life
altering concepts and behaviors including massive consumption of
high fructose corn syrup containing foods and beverages.

I can now look right into the eyes of Admiral Zork, Commander of
the Rebel Reptilian Grand Fleet and Cultivater of the Garden of
War, and tell him, "Begone, you figment of Dick Hall's mental

It all becomes clear now! The years held in the ETH thrall by
these sinister ufologists. The wasted youth. I too cringe at the
shame of it, but now the sky is bluer. The air crisper. Thanks,
Jeff, I have overcome the indoctrination, and now I don't even
like beer. It's... it's just on those nights with no moon out,
away from the lights of the city, it's hard to look up at the
skies and not backslide into the ETH implication.
