I am operating under no such impression and am quite aware that
FOIA requests have been filed. Instead, I voiced my desire for
some means to by-step this incredibly slow process.

Is it your opinion that 'multiple researchers acting on their
own' is, in someway, detrimental to the field?

You are, of course, entitled to your opinion. I also am a long-
standing witness of lights in or around the airspace of
airports and military bases. I differ from you in the fact that
such lights/arial objects must be acting in a bizarre manner,
especially since the term 'bizarre' would need to be quantified
for this usage. I do understand your general meaning, however.

I would also like to point out that it is conceivable that
'planned arial strangeness' involving conventional craft could
soon take place as means for _the_powers_that_be_ to diffuse
interest in the initial November sightings. It is of my opinion
that just such a stunt took place during the Phoenix incident.
