Editorial: A Waste Of Presidential Space

It is a long shot, but suppose for the sake of argument, New
Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, currently running on the second
tier of candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination,
were to win his party's nod and the presidency.

On his to-do list would presumably be how to address the wars in
Iraq and Afghanistan, the threat of Iran, illegal immigration,
the future of Social Security, health care, etc. Getting to the
bottom of the Roswell UFO controversy would be way down the list
- if included at all.

Last week at a town hall meeting in Round Rock, Richardson
responded to a question from an apparent UFO enthusiast who
asked what Richardson would do as president regarding the 1947
"incident" near Roswell, N.M. Sixty years ago, the U.S. military
is believed - by some - to have covered up evidence of alien
life from a UFO crash.

Richardson said he asked the U.S. Department of Defense about
the Roswell incident when he served in Congress, but was told
the "data" was classified. If elected president, Richardson said
he would "work with" the possibility of opening files pertaining
to Roswell.

In fairness, Richardson was responding only to a question, and
didn't bring up the off-the-wall subjects of UFOs and government
cover-ups that last decades.

Our advice to the governor is to make science fiction stories
issue No. 101 on his Top 100 list of presidential priorities.
