The Battle of LA


The facts, Jack: weeks after Pearl Harbor, a huge craft was spotted coming in low over Los Angeles. It was hit by spotlights and photographed. While it sat over the city, nearly motionless, and in plain view of thousands of folks, the army started shooting anti-aircraft guns at it. Thousands of rounds. 6 people died and shrapnel rained down. None of it was from the visitor, however, who eventually cruised off over Long Beach and disappeared into the night.

Okay, some of the facts may have been stretched over the years, but basically. Look it up!

Yep, especially that soon after the Pearl Harbor attacks.

I really really really don't ever want to be abducted. Really.

May- Kathleen and I were just talking about that today. After her last week's probing by the medical profession she is even more sure than ever that she does not care to be probed by aliens.

Yeah,, visiting the aliens has never been high on my list. Which is odd, for all the sf I've read.
