Desperate Measures... or... This Could Be A Huge Mistake

I'm a little confused by this. I got an email from my MUFON State Director directing me to place an ad on Craiglist in an effort to recruit new Certified UFO Field Investigators. Okay, but I thought Craigslist was where you went to look for a killer?

I guess I'm just not up on these newfangled social media.

Anyway, I trust my State Director, and I am sworn to obey her orders, so... off to Craigslist I go. She gave me and the other State Section Director some prepared text to place in the ad, and it went like this:

"Join the largest civilian organization investigating UFOs, Mutual UFO Network - Wisconsin needs investigators throughout the state. Check out the lower right hand corner of the MUFON website or write State Director, Vxxxx Lxxxxxx at Lxxxxx@xxx.com. Thanks!"

It's a little dry. If I was on Craigslist looking for a killer and I came across this, I would not be very enthused. It's all MUFON needs this and MUFON needs that; What's in it for me?

Would you join MUFON if you could have an alien encounter with this gal?
Worse yet: If I'm looking for Investigators in my section of the state, why would I have them contact my State Director? How does that add to my power base? 

After a great deal of thought, I have decided to post the ad as written... with a few minor alterations. Instead of the State Director's email, I am asking people to write to me directly at LoneWolf@highstrangenessufo.com

I'll give it a few days and see how it goes. If I haven't gotten any action in a few days, I'll repost the ad... with an actual sales pitch. This is potentially the most important, most thrilling thing a person can do with his or her life; the ad should get that point across! It should be all sexy images and empty promises, exactly what sucked me into this gig!
