Pass The Popcorn
by Billy Cox

"Lynn Woolsey. Phone home."

Yes. Really. That's how the San Jose Mercury News chose to lead
its coverage of this week's Citizen Hearing on Disclosure in
Washington. Simple. Predictable as an Ambien yawn. And with a
local peg to boot: a retired California congresswoman sitting on
a panel expressly convened to hear evidence of - quote - an
"extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race".

On Tuesday, Day 2 of the mock congressional hearings, Woolsey's
CHoD colleague, former Maryland Rep. Roscoe Bartlett, was
already torqued by the media's handling of this thing. As
apparently tireless Huffington Post blogger Lee Spiegel
reported, Bartlett read a piece that chided him and five other
former elected officials for getting $20K to hear the witnesses

"That's just insulting, that we can be bought for $20,000 -
that's ridiculous!" Bartlett bristled over the article. "It goes
on to say that...'former member Roscoe Bartlett, in an opening
statement, Bartlett said he hadn't fulfilled his duty in office
by failing to hold hearings on extraterrestrials...' I NEVER
SAID THAT!... I never said that I believed in extraterrestrials.
I believe that there are sightings out there that cannot be
easily explained away."

Umm, dude - unexplained sightings are not the premise of
organizer Steve Bassett's gathering. Let's read his website's
wording again: "The Citizen Hearing on Disclosure of an
extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race will attempt
to accomplish what the Congress has failed to do for forty-five
years =96 seek out the facts surrounding the most important issue
of this or any other time."
