Subject: SLS: More on Test Dummies and Roswell (fwd)


It's military intelligence, all right.

That's what they call it, anyway ...

... military intelligence.

Just like shooting down a TWA commercial jet,
filled with innocent people.

That was military intelligence too.

If we had to do Iwo Jima all over again,
I would suspect the Japanese would own
the entire continent by now, after reeling in
Pearl Harbor with monofilament, a fly rod,
and a ball of cheese.

/s/ Paul Mitchell

p.s.  What century are we in, anyway?
I forgot how to do memory management, again.
I am a Bill Gates wannabe.  Hey, Bill, 
can I Charge some Gates on my next windows
buy?  Sorry your Tucson facility folded.
I told you so.
