I think this discussion has been sidetracked from the point I
originally tried to make. I had a hand in that; I'm not blaming
anyone else.

What I originally said was that I can't blame leakers in the
past from going to UFO people, instead of the mainstream press.
And that they may well have gone to the mainstream press, and
been turned away. That, at least for me, was the most important
part of what I originally wrote - that it would be fascinating
to go to a reporter like Seymour Hersh, who gets national
security secrets leaked to him very often, and find out whether
anyone has ever tried to talk to him about UFOs.

Right now I certainly think UFO leakers should go to the
mainstream press and try their luck. Maybe there's a new
attitude emerging. Certainly as a new generation takes over the
news business, I'd expect attitudes to change.

But how widespread has the change been, so far? Yes, the O'Hare
incident was covered, even sympathetically in Chicago. But (as
far as I can see from searching the NY Times website) it wasn't
mentioned in the NY Times at all, even though the Times covered
other O'Hare-related news, like a near-collision between two
planes and the derailment of a subway train on its way to the
