    Spaced Out

    We're early yet in the war on terror, and already some are worrying about the next great threat to civilization: intergalactic war with space aliens.
    According to the Edmonton Sun, former Canadian Defense Minister Paul Hellyer warned in a September speech that "UFOs are as real as the airplanes that fly over your head." He suggested that aliens may already be visiting Earth.

    He thinks the American government should be open about what really happened in Roswell, N.M., in 1947, when a flying saucer allegedly went down and alien bodies were recovered. (Some believe one alien survived and now serves as chairman of the Democratic National Committee.)

    What's worse is he fears that the American government is gearing up for intergalactic war. "The Bush administration has decided to allow the military to build a forward base on the moon," he says, "which will put them in a better position to keep track of the goings and comings of the visitors from space and to shoot at them, if they so decide."

    Oh, where to start? Bush is often accused of lacking the ability to see nuances--that he sees things only in black and white--but his critics are more frequently the ones who fall into that camp. They're doing it again with ETs.
