ALIEN NATION: Have Humans Been Abducted by
Extraterrestrials Among Us? Are ETs Here For Occupation,
Colonization Or Are They Simply

By Ralph Blumenthal
The New York Times

"Tagging" Us Much Like We Track and Monitor Wildlife?!

A prestigious Harvard psychiatrist, John Edward Mack, thought so.
His sudden death leaves behind many mysteries....

If you're abducted by alien beings, are you physically absent?

This happens to be an important issue for the media-shy people
gathered one afternoon last July on the porch of Anne Ramsey
Cuvelier's blue Victorian inn on Narragansett Bay, in Rhode
Island, once called "the most elegantly finished house ever
built in Newport." Co-designed in 1869 by a cousin of Ralph
Waldo Emerson's, it has been in Cuvelier's family since 1895,
when her great-grandfather bought it as a summer getaway from
his winter home blocks away, just as the Gilded Age cottages of
the Vanderbilts and Astors began springing up across the island,
redefining palatial extravagance. Still imposing with its
butternut woodwork, ebony trimmings, and four-story paneled
atrium frescoed in the Pompeian style, the harborside mansion
turned B&B seemed a fittingly baroque setting for the group of
reluctant guests Cuvelier describes as "not a club anyone wants
to belong to."

She had gathered them to compare experiences as, well,
"experiencers," a term they prefer to "abductees," and to
socialize free of stigma among peers. Cuvelier, an elegant and
garrulous woman in her 70s, isn't one of them. But she remembers
as a teen in the 1940s hearing her father, Rear Admiral Donald
James Ramsey, a World War II hero, muttering about strange
flying craft that hovered and streaked off at unimaginable
speed, and she's been an avid ufologist ever since. "I want to
get information out so these people don't have to suffer," she
says. "Nobody believes you. You go through these frightening
experiences, and then you go through the ridicule."

So, for a week each summer for almost two decades, she's been
turning away paying guests at her family's Sanford-Covell Villa
Marina, on the cobblestoned waterfront in Newport, to host these
intimate gatherings of seemingly ordinary folk with
extraordinary stories, along with the occasional sympathetic
medical professional and scientist and other brave or foolhardy
souls not afraid to be labeled nuts for indulging a fascination
with the mystery. I had been invited as a journalist with a
special interest who has been talking to some of them for
several years.
