They’re Coming to Take Him Away

A UFO the “size of a Walmart” was seen yesterday by more than 40 folks, including the sherrif and an airline pilot, over Stephenville, a small Texas farming community south of Dallas.

The thing hovered silently several hundred feet above the ground for several minutes, then moved away at great speed. Observers say two fighter jets attempted to pursue, but could not come close to the thing’s speed. The Government denies any knowledge of the event.

Personally, I think they were looking for Crawford. They’re taking him home.

But you can listen for yourself on NPR (3 minute audio) or visit this site for a half dozen video reports.
