First-Class UFO A**holes

When will the warnings end?

I recently wrote somewhat disdainfully about a certain "news item" that said that a certain "three-letter agency" was hacking the email accounts of people associated with certain photographic "slides" that might prove that a certain "UFO event" happened. Then one of my faithful readers posted a comment that basically agreed with my take on the news item, which I appreciated. But then the commenter added this:
"Anyway, a word of caution: There are some first class assholes involved in this mess about the slides. If you are going to choose sides, choose carefully. ;)"
I groaned when I read it. Another warning? I am sick of the warnings! I don't care how well-intentioned they are, I don't care if they come with a wink-wink emoticon, I am so, so, so sick of getting words of caution.

I got into this UFO business to piss off aliens, not fellow UFO celebrities. But it seems that being in the UFO biz means that one is going to be perpetually at risk of pissing off some first class asshole or another, for what often seem to be incredibly stupid and petty reasons. So one has to not just choose sides, but to choose them carefully... Ugh.
Do I have to point out which one is the real enemy?

While I hate that I have to choose sides, I think it's evident that I already have, and that I have done so carefully: I have chosen to be on the smart side, not the stupid side.

To put it another way, I have chosen to be on the second class assholes' side, not the first class assholes' side. That seems better, somehow, although I'm not exactly sure how or why...

Now, can we all get back to pissing off aliens?

Good stuff... Truth is a slippery bugger.

And probes are slippery buggery.

I'm pretty sure I said *if* you choose sides, but I'm not going to bother looking. Choosing sides when you have nothing to gain is not smart, in my book.

Anyway, better get used to the pissing matches. They are all some people have, apparently.

Point taken. Thanks for keeping me on my toes, Mr. Double-Nought.
