It bothers me, too, when the national reporters take the time to do a story on extraterrestrial phenomena, but waste it on people that come across as
a little whacko. No offense to the people in Gary Tuchman's story, but he could have tried to make the appear more credible or chosen another
subject for his story.
I think that it's the degree to which more and more people are either believing that they're abductees or believe in abduction, however, that lead
him to choose this story. The figure he gave (admittedly extrapolated) was that in the mid 90's (don't recall the year off the top of my head)
approximately 5,000,000 americans would claim to be abductees -- or roughly 2% of the population.
You get your 2% of abductees, another 2% believers, and another 4% skeptics... you got yourself an 8-share. Think about this seriously for a minute.
An 8-share in prime-time will generally get your show picked-up for another season. Imagine what we can do by getting the word out about Serpo, Dan
Burisch, or another story. If the right story is chosen, imagine the "share" that story would get in primetime. When that time comes, serious
reporters will do serious investigation, use their contacts, and get real answers.
I don't think we're quite at that point yet -- but the momentum is growing. Serpo, Burisch, Roswell, Area 51? It's not whether any of these are
completely true and accurate -- it's whether they're "true enough" to get people's attention. Get enough people's attention and they will
demand answers. Only then will full disclosure truly begin.
