Hi Martin,

As per Tony Bragalia's previous missives on Socorro, I find a
hyperbolic title followed by a rather thin assemblage of hand-
waving, name-dropping, and self-congratulation. A giant Chinese
lantern, seriously? And Zamora would not have immediately
noticed this thing being buffeted by the stiff wind during the
pre-launch phase on the ground?

If you follow the "Continue Reading..." link to his blog site,
you'll see David Rudiak essentially grind him to dust in the
comments, so I'll avoid piling-on here.

I don't rule out a hoax at Socorro (unless it involves a Chinese
lantern), but I'm astonished that Tony apparently sincerely
believes that these cryptic email mutterings from "perhaps the
greatest living physicist in the word [sic]" Stirling Colgate,
along with gratuitous references to Linus Pauling (whose lack of
any further comment/query about Socorro is presented as
_confirmation_ of Colgate's claim!), are somehow sufficient to
blow this case completely out of the water.
