Really, James, is it necessary to put words into my mouth? I never said, or even implied, anything like a "Gomer Pyle screw- up." I have no reason to think those involved were dim-witted cartoon hillbillies; to the contrary, as I've tried to explain to you, screw ups happen on all levels of society in all kinds of circumstances, not just among imaginary television personalities. Then again, you may be a medieval astrologer who believes there is no such thing as chance. As I understand it, the Roswell press release was just a normal screw up, sort of like Michael Kinsley's classic definition of a gaffe: when a politician accidentally speaks the truth. Here, the truth of the moment was that the remains were believed to be of a flying disc. The authorities at the base soon regretted announcing as much and did everything in their power to discredit the release. That's Roswell 101. And really, James, I have never identified myself as a "Roswell expert," nor till now has anyone ever called me one. I am no more an authority on the subject than you are, and my views on the matter remain resolutely agnostic. You need greater fidelity to accuracy if you expect to be taken seriously.
