I recant!

On May 19, 2008 I thought I saw what might have been an alien craft hovering very near the Surry Nuclear Power Station on the James River in SE VA. It now seems rather absurd to assume that what I saw had an extraterrestrial explanation. I am sure that I was mistaken. And, as so many helpful people have contacted me over the last 6 months telling me what it was that I saw, I am now inclined to believe that they are right and I am wrong. I can now see that the notion of alien visitation is laughable. It is clear to me that people three thousand miles from the scene of the sighting are more knowledgeable than I am. And, then there is Mr. Davenport, with his light touch and keen wit, who never met a man he couldn't browbeat or make to feel like a worthless toad. Such a breath of fresh air! A real credit to Ufology. After all, who am I to make such a preposterous claim? Six years in the Navy, a BS in environmental science, a Masters in climatology, wh, I hardly know how to tie my shoes! I am now convinced that what I saw was an advertising airship that had been blown off course, and just happened to find itself stuck in the vicinity of the nuke plant.
