Thank goodness you're here Mr. Davenport. As for why our leaders
don't jump on this story is obvious. They already know or those
that don't are advised on that good ol' 'need to know basis'

I've been told several times by politicians and their staff that
the subject is taboo and again that 'need to know basis'. Also,
there's the fear of character assassination by one's political
opponents. Let's say for example Congressman Joe asks questions
about the O'Hare UFO Incident. Next election time, Congressman
Joe's opponents will be bringing up his belief in the fantastic
as grounds not to trust him or his leadership. 'Why stick your
neck out for humanity if it'll cost you your job?', they say.

Besides, the O'Hare story has no sex, drugs, violence, nor
grist-for-the-mill for character assassination. If Pamela Sue
Anderson or some other popular hottie tv/movie star had been at
the airport and said something you'd have more legislators on
this story than paparazzi on Britney Spears.

Also, there's that War in Iraq that's still going on even Iraq
doesn't have an army. We beat them up in a few hours when they
did have an army and now that they don't it's taking us six
years and going. The votes and floor antics the legislators are
going through garners more face-time in front of the news
cameras than does UFOs. Since the O'Hare situation didn't
interrupt the soap operas, game shows, and sports broadcasts,
and because booze and cigarettes still got distributed the story
doesn't warrant the attention it deserves because the public
doesn't care.

Now, had that UFO disrupted the broadcast of ABC's popular show
"Desperate Housewives" you'd have seen the seventh fleet show

Again, as long as our creature comforts are still in place and
UFOs don't disrupt that reality, you won't have any support for

By now the public knows the authorities aren't going to
cooperate with the public's interest in the subject. The public
also knows the press won't either. So many of us and our
families work in or around government it's almost a common fact
that 'one doesn't talk about UFOs' . In each culture I'm sure
there are subjects that are hush-hush. In our society it's a
subject of entertainment and that's it.

Everyone knows there are aliens and other strange beings and
that some of us know it's true and some don't. It's like one of
those family secrets that we all have and don't talk about.

Maybe because when you look hard enough into the subject what
you find is a great big mirror.

Finally, everyone should support Mr. Davenport any way you can.
