All right, at The Bedford Citizen we pretty much keep to Bedford News. Town Meetings, Musicals, New Businesses, etc.
But sometimes we need to expand our horizon, look at the big picture so to speak.
To be honest, those headlines in some of the tabloids would be fun. Elvis, spotted in Michigan! Half-man half-dog baffles doctors! Luigi’s plans a return to Bedford before the next solar eclipse!
It would be fun to dabble in such things. But we will resist. However, UFOs have been in the news lately. Two-thirds of all Americans think there is intelligent life out there. That is different from UFOs. After all, a UFO is an Unidentified Flying Object. You look up, you see something, you don’t know what it is — bang! UFO. But the idea that we have alien spaceships periodically paying us a visit has always been intriguing.
