What are the scenarios? Is everything really fine in the sky or is that standard for "we have no idea".

I suspect Bill Clinton knows, at least according to this story related by Webster Hubbell. Wouldn't that be the first thing YOU'D want to know if you were president?

I think it's great that a well-known celebrity is one of the people involved....but come on guys, this Engrish thing has gone on long enough. Renny Rogers? It's time for the internet to become a bit more PC.

Are you implying that AG Ashcroft is an alien? Hmmm...

"It was this object, this light-blue object, traveling at a phenomenal rate of speed," Rogers said. "This Air Force jet was right behind it, chasing it, but the object was just leaving him in the dust."

Hmmm.. Superman promo?

What a coincidence that this story appears on the same day as a story about tiny flying robots.

"But they scoff at the idea that the jets were chasing a strange and speedy, blue unidentified flying object."

Well, of course they scoff. Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones got to them first with the Neuralizer.

Tiny flying robots eh? Truly, the Simpsons is the Oracle of our times:

The wars of the future will not be fought on the battlefield or at sea.
They will be fought in space, or possibly on top of a very tall
mountain. In either case, most of the actual fighting will be done by
small robots. And as you go forth today remember always your duty is
clear: To build and maintain those robots.
