Hi Paul!

When the story on the drones first broke I too found the subject
very interesting.

I sent the pics published to experts in photoshop and other
special effects software and techniques. The majority felt the
photos were not kosher. That didn't however dismiss the
possibility. When in doubt ask a scientist says I.

I did and was surprised to find there is real science behind the
probability of such devices. Long standing science behind it and
I posted those links on this list.

However, the problem I have with the drones story is its taken
leaps so far from the stable it's gotten uninteresting.

Ms. Howe is a delight. No doubt about that. A real pro, but this
story first has to establish that_there_are_really_drones_. So
far we have questionable pics, and some eyewitness testimony.

Not long after the story broke the subject of extratrerrestials
and back engineered ET technology, yadda, yadda, yadda.

For cryin' out loud, let the data reveal it. Let's wait 'til
more study on the photos and more solid, physical proof is
gathered before these leaps in speculation occur. They muddy the
waters and that's the reason the drone story has that 'you might
get cooties if you touch it' thing.

One sane step at a time when it comes to the fantastic.
