Why Don't They Fake It?

Subject: Why Don't They Fake It?

I've had this thought many times over the past ten years or
more; when it comes to UFO sightings, why don't we get more of a
big show from the powers that be that everything is okay, it's
all taken care of?

Not a denial, or some silly insulting explanation about the
usual: swamp gas, plasma, weird clouds, flares... but a
puffed up show of "we're in charge, and don't worry".

Of course, a lot of us will know they're full of it, but it'll
still make us feel better, if only for a few moments. And
anyway, it'd be amusing to watch them earn their money by coming
out dressed in their uniforms and acting all official.

These thoughts, and the recent O'Hare sighting, inspired me to
write this:

Why Don't They Fake It?

An excerpt:

The point is, we have layers upon layers of baffled
bureaucracies that don't know a damn thing, and have long ago
given up any illusion of pretending to care.

Damn it. When we see weird objects in the skies above our
cities, I expect local, state, and federal agencies to act like
they have everything under control. That they know what's what.

I want a few people - in uniform, if at all possible - to hit
the airwaves, the radio, CNN, and somberly state that they are
investigating, or that it's classified, or that... anything,
something, as long as that something conveys a solid sense of 'We
Know What We're Doing'.
