I just read the report from the US Air Force documenting the unidentified objects shadowing our aircraft. "Unexplainable. Beyond our technological capabilities."

My first thoughts:

- The government did not try to hide this from people.

- People were not panicked. They ignored it.

- Worst of all, if this turns out to be real alien contact, it will screw up my science fiction stories. This is the biggest hazard for a sci fi writer.


I have 3 identities: 1. Science fiction writer. 2. Small business advisor. My sci fi is a hell of a lot more fun! 3. Lonely politics — not right, not left.
