Of course Jerry, I should have realised that all of the people
who claim that the MoD are only releasing the low-grade material
and are still hiding the 'real' files are non-believers just
like yourself. Why should I have thought otherwise?

As you well know, no UFO witness was ever found to be drunk, nor
for that matter otherwise intoxicated. They are all fine,
upstanding, productive members of society, without exception.
They must all be reliable witnesses, mustn't they?

The illusion of Nirvana must be maintained at any cost I
suppose.
