To All,

I'm intrigued enough by the information presented by Anthony
Bragalia re Socorro to at least regard his purported hoax theory
worthy of serious consideration.

While I see no reason to simply dismiss out of hand the
information presented by him, at the same time there are a
number of important questions that need answers before his hoax
theory can be embraced with any degree of certainty.

In my view, the best position to take is judgement suspended as
things now stand.

Note that I'm particularly intrigued by the following;

1) The actual quotes attributed to Dr. Stirling Colgate.

2) The pieces of charred cardboard-like material found at the

3) The purported pyrotechnics involved (and the charred bushes
found at the site).

4) The footprints found at the site (which could go either way).

BTW, were it ever to be conclusively proven that Socorro was a
hoax, this would be a bitter blow to ufology. The loss of
Socorro would be no small matter. Very important UFO report, or
a most notable Cautionary Tale? We really do need to know with
some certainty, if this desired conclusion is at all attainable.
