All my life when I heard the word UFO I instantly thought "sure, the earth is flat and the moon landing was faked."
Last week a woman whom we know as skeptical and very well read told us that, hard as it is to believe, she and a group of women saw one and have never been able to deny it. Eh? I wondered if she had some crazy gene that makes her seem reasonable on every other topic but this one.
And then her smart engineer husband sent me some links, like this one from The Washington Post: The military keeps encountering UFOs. Why doesn’t the Pentagon care? It's by Christopher Mellon, deputy assistant secretary of defense for intelligence in the Clinton and George W. Bush administrations. Wait, what? Is there really some legitimacy to UFO research?
