Well, if it matters (and I'm sure it doesn't), Kathy, I was
poking fun at the drugstore-paperback name on another List days
before I made a comparable point on UpDates. You and I would
agree - what sensible person wouldn't? - that to call oneself
"Chase Brandon" is to ask for it. Maybe "Walter Mitty" is more
like it.

The larger issue, obviously, is the continuing emergence of
claimants who allege high security clearances and who peddle
fantastic stories without supporting documentation behind them.
As thick as thieves these days, they remind me in many ways of
the 1950s contactees who supplied outlandish, hard-to-believe
yarns for the edification of persons whom nature had not endowed
with critical filters.

Unless and until we see good evidence, skepticism - as defined
by doubt and caution - is a rational observer's only possible
response. In the meantime, none of us should be endangering our
health by holding our breaths.
