Believers in the coincidence theory of history will have fun with this one. It was 64 years ago this week when witnesses claimed that something fell from the sky and crashed on a ranch outside of Roswell, N.M.
Ever since July 8, 1947, rumors have persisted that the unidentified flying object, or UFO, contained visitors from outer space. Allegedly, their bodies were hidden away by government agents and became the object of various secret experiments.
I scoff at such preposterous allegations, of course. Nevertheless, it gives me pause to realize that nine months later, in March 1948, Al Gore was born.
Hey, have you got a better explanation?
