    Area 51 raid

    Anyone going to the raid to get to see the aliens? Last I heard it is scheduled for Sep 15th. I am tied up that day unfortunately and am too old to go traipsing around around in the desert.

    Thanks Mcq. They know it's me. No false tax returns or military stuff either. (SS number is military service number for USAF since 1 Jul 69) Scary to think about though.
