I used to read "unexplained" magazine as a 10 year old boy , under the covers witha torch at 3am when i shoulda been fast asleep.
I was filled with wonder that there were such things as " unexplained " and that everything was not as it seemed.
I grew up , wanting to believe , and even moreso during the cold war when we were all being prompted about what to do in the event of a nuclear
attack. I hoped that something benevolent would step in and stop the madness.
However , the whole UFO debate , which was once a subject of fascination to me , has become a free-for-all for the lunatic fringe. Like when michael
jackson died , all the wackos were spotting jacko everywhere , and when elvis died , people were seeing him working in the local chip-shop.
This whole fascinating subject has been ruined for me because of the dyslexic and incoherent babblings and wafflings of people who see a balloon and ,
immediately , jump all over it like white on rice , claiming the space brothers and the ashtar galactic command are putting on an aeronautical display
, before landing on the whitehouse lawn and announcing the cure to end all disease.
The whole subject is tarnished with ridicule and uncorroborated , unsubstantiated nonsense now.
