Well, let's just say I require a pretty substantial level of proof.

But you know, if I was an intergalactic star traveling type dude, I know I would like nothing better than to make a layover over Alabama. But I don't recommend stopping at the rest area north of Montgomery. I'll just leave it at that.

Best response? From one Leada Gore, publisher of the Hartselle Enquirer and contributor to The Clanton Advertiser, who took some flak for her earlier story regarding our putative visitation:

[...] ďItís backwoods hillbillies like you that make the possibility of an event like this even more unbelievable.Ē

Ouch. Backwoods hillbilly? Me? Do you mean to tell me if I donít believe the words of some Australian psychic who gets her advice from an Indian who just happens to share the name of a popular toilet paper brand then Iím a hillbilly?

Well, yee-haw I guess. [...]

As a very wise alien once said, "Heh. Indeed."

If, as Blossom Goodchild (and the "Federation") insists, Alabama was once in the Southern Hemisphere, it explains a lot.

I hope they don't take a bad turn and wind up over Detroit.

Diane, it do sorta make one wonder, don't it?

And in a similar vein, Janis, are you talking about the Detroit in the Southern Hemisphere?

I hope they show up soon. My special corn-a-tee hot dish will dry up soon.

Well, so far they've been a no-show. And not even a phone call! Danged space-alien ingrates!
