Roswell sheep

July 23, 2007

A friend sent me this…

Many will recall that on July 8, 1947, witnesses claimed that an unidentified object with five aliens aboard crashed onto a sheep and cattle ranch just outside Roswell , New Mexico . This is a well-known incident that many say has long been covered up by the U.S. Air Force and the Federal government.

However, what you may NOT know is that in the month of March, 1948, exactly nine months after that historic day, George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfield, Bill O’Reilly, Rush Limbaugh, Condolezza Rice, and Dan Quyale were all born.

This is what happens when aliens breed with sheep. This piece of information may clear up a lot of things.

Funnily enough, it does.

Reddit pointed me to this article on Reason Online. Set in Douala , southwestern Cameroon, ittells of the experiences of Tim Harford, musing about possible reasons poor countries like that are, and stay, poor. Larded with ad-hoc reflections and opinions from people he meets on a short trip from the airport. Interesting read.
