  1. “General W.R. Monger: This place is an X-file, wrapped in a cover-up and deep-fried in a paranoid conspiracy.”

    Nice little ‘production’.

    Totally predictable ending, however.

  2. “That’s our story and we’re stickin’ to it.” He was “pronounced dead” but does that mean he really was? Government “pronouncements” have been proved to be “hogwash”. I’m like George Carlin. ” I don’t believe anything the government tells me, nada, nothing.”
