There's that famous Vincent Boudreau again, raising a very
interesting question that has already spurred some pertinent
thoughts from Harper Carlotto. As a notorious gatekeeper,
fearful of new ideas and fighting to maintain the status quo, I
cannot allow this to happen. ;-}

Since my UFO abduction studies (in the past) were in and around
the Washington, D.C., area I had occasion to work with some
people with connections in prominent agencies and in high
places. One such made inquiries at one of the household-name
medical institutions to determine the medical staff's awareness
of abduction reports. The result was complete awareness, not
blank stares.

This is only one anecdote from one person, and the skeptibunkers
are permitted to chortle amongst themselves and to ignore it. In
fact, I agree that it is only hearsay and proves abslutely
nothing. To me it is more meaningful because I know the people
involved and have been a guest in their homes.

Over my 40 years or so in this geographical area I have picked
up other tidbits of information which cannot be documented for
general consumption about UFO-related activities at various
agencies. I have made it a practice to report these in my
writings anyway so that better informed and more aware
'ufologists' who know me can factor them into their thinking.
Several of these appear in my book Uninvited Guests.
