And Now from Some Comic Relief from the US Space Program

Moon-walker claims alien contact cover-up

Seriously, I’m much closer in age to Dr. Mitchell than I am to you, so I’m thinking, one of these days… hey, what’s that light in the sky?

I'm loving it. Some fries with that order? And if it was true? Suddenly it all makes sense!

I want to believe. But reading the "Other Interests" section of his Wikipedia entry really doesn't do much for his credibility.

People change, in any which way, as they age of course. And the astronauts of that era were very much not chosen for their stable, thoughtful, intellectual approach to life - they needed people happy and willing to be strapped to the end of several hundred tons of explosives and have it be blown up in a semi-controlled manner after all.

I went and looked at Edgar Mitchell’s page in Wikipedia. To find that Dr. Mitchell has been involved in this kind of nonsense for decades leaves me feeling relieved. At least this one's not part of the aging process.

It never fails to amaze me to see otherwise functionally intelligent people—many of them engineers and scientists—who have massive blind spots in their rational thinking. I wonder if I have one too, and if so, what it is.
