If you can, you should sneak away from your comparatively corporate gig sometime this week for the 2012 meeting of the International UFO Congress. The group, based here in Phoenix has held this annual conference since 1991 and has seen attendance climb every year.
The 2012 session starts tomorrow at Fort McDowell Resort and Casino and will present notable researchers and witnesses of alien activity like Whitley Strieber, Stanton Friedman and Arizona’s own Travis Walton, subject of the book and film Fire in The Sky, which told of the logger’s 1975 abduction in the White Mountains.
As Web-dwelling fanboy, I am usually pre-loaded with a fistful of snark and self righteousness, but I’m doing my best to keep it at bay this week. I enjoy the annual confab of the IUFOC and fully support their proselytizing for crop-circles, close encounters other contact with extraterrestrial entities. Stranger things have happened – after all, the fat kid from Superbad may soon be known as “Academy-Award Winner Jonah Hill,” so who are we to say what’s impossible?
