Did an alien craft crash in Roswell in July of 1947? Maybe. As kitschy as the idea has become in a post-"X-Files" world, I've never been able to dismiss the possibility to my satisfaction.

The problem with Roswell, as Paul Kimball points out, is that the testimonies of many supposed principle witnesses have been deflated by nagging truths and contradictions. We still can't rule out an ET explanation, but much of what originally defined the Roswell case has transcended the bounds of "investigation" and become mythology . . . which might not be entirely bad.

Certainly not for the Roswell Chamber of Commerce. (See post re Greg Bishop's report from Roswell, immediately above.)

If you want to get a really interesting perspective on the whole UFO situation in a fun to read story form check out The Facade.

It is cool, because it is like a John Grisham novel, but really well researched.
