Hi Chris!

A few of my skeptical friends at work are taking interest and
starting to talk about UFOs now that the media is reporting
about them every day. Since most of this stuff can easily and
reasonably be explained as bright meteors, jet contrails or by
other prosaic explanations, I think this renewed recent public
interest in UFOs will be short-lived.

As for why the media is now reporting everything, I think it is
to distract us from and ultimately to discredit the few very
important UFO incidents that have happened recently, including
the Chicago O'Hare UFO sightings and the many reports of UFO
close encounters and even crashes in Iran. Maybe those that
control the media do not want us to know about O'Hare or Iran
since these UFOs are our own still secret vehicles.

To our credit, it has been ufologists that have identified many
of the recent UFO hoaxes and have proven that they are more
critical thinking than the media which is reporting everything
that comes to their attention.
