Citizen Hearing on Disclosure -- Part 3

Well, I blew it today. I got busy with work and completely missed the final big day of the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure. Boo freaking hoo.

So, I paid a whopping $3.80 to listen and watch the live stream all week, which would have been a bargain had I logged in all five days. That would have worked out to 76 cents a day, a real value in UFO world. But, because I logged off mid-day Wednesday so I wouldn't have to listen to Stanton Friedman's unmitigated rudeness, and then left it off yesterday, and then forgot to log on today, it works out to $1.27 per day. Not such a hot bargain now.
Flying saucers have been flocking to our nation's capitol this week.

To try to make up for it, I just checked the news coverage of the last day of the event, and found this write-up by Alexandra Petri in the Washington Post. This is weird, because all week long the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure fans have been complaining that the mainstream media have been igging them. Not so!

The article is a great read from start to finish, and puts the entire Hearing in its place, but there's one line in particular that stands out. In describing the dizzying panoply of conspiracy theories and abduction stories and classified non-information that permeated--and ultimately defined--the hearing, Petri quipped, "UFOs are just the gateway drug."

Brilliant.
