	Please reconsider your statement about Switzerland.  I'm on your side,
really, but Switzerland is Billy Meier country where the whole Pleadian
visitation nonsense started.  And what about UMMO?  These two scams have
become two of the central core elements of the Alien
Abduction/Experiencer myth.  I'm all with you on American gullibility,
but the same argument also applies to the rest of our planet to a lesser
degree.  Keep posting .... mk
