Only when I haven't had enough coffee before I start writing to
UpDates, Kathy. Till then, all is id.

The big mistake made in most UFO discourse - as in, I'm afraid,
the above - is to presume that the phenomenon must be one or the
other: either nuts-and-bolts, presumably ET, UFOs and nothing
else or Something Else and nothing else.

I'm afraid the lines don't fall that simply and cleanly. The
sooner we discard that sentimental notion, the sooner we may
start to get somewhere.
