Yet another Roswell senario

Hi all,
The Discovery Channel, while getting high marks (from me) for the recent
'UFOs Down to Earth' series, also has its share of bombs. Case in point:
the new series, "What If". It is a putrid stew of bad drama and bad
writing. It is a 'speculative' documentary type deal. Last night's
(1/14/97) episode was on the possible ramifications of contact (SETI-type
contact) with extraterrestrial intelligences (ETI). It was done as a
documentary from 1999 and among other things had a whole new (at least to
me) read on the Roswell Incident. Apparently, the craft that crashed was
indeed a MOGUL balloon, but the secretive part was the the balloon had
recieved an extraterrestrial signal--boy, those MOGUL balloons must have
SENSETIVE sensors to pick up a signal sent from 17 light-years away. The
commentaries from 'people on the street' were trite and predictable. A
thumbs down in my humble opinion.
