Nuclear physicist and U.S. cable TV presenter (of *Mysteries from Beyond the Other Dominion*), Dr. Franklin Ruehl contacted Blather this week, to ask: 'Did ETs zap the Deep Space 1 ion engine? Were alien remote viewers involved in this act of extraterrestrial sabotage? Would this be a possible item for Blather?' +Dr. Ruehl+ The very nature of the last question ensured its inclusion in this week's issue. Dr. Ruehl forwarded Blather an article from *Wireless Flash* which covers his claim of sabotage, and his theories on how the probe was disabled using *either* lasers or 'psychic powers'. The motive? Ruehl reckons that the space brothers don't like pesky earthlings nosing around in their stuff, specifically Asteroid 1992 KD, 'because it may be the site of an alien outpost'. Sharp Retort There's not a shred of, dare we mention it, *evidence* to go along with these claims... or if there is,...

The very first issue of Blather *One of Our Bombers is Missing!*, way back on 12th May 1997, dealt with the terrific furore which had erupted over the demise of Capt. Craig Button, a U.S. Air Force pilot who had buried his A-10 bomber aircraft into the side of a Colorado mountain, with a full payload of bombs. All sorts of theories were bounced around back then, between connections to militia, the then forthcoming McVeigh trial, and claims of suicide due to sexual confusion. Considering the amount of US Air Force accidents that have failed to escape our attention in the past year or so, with F-16s dropping out of the sky at what appears to be regular intervals, it is curious as to why this one incident has refused to lie low. Was it merely the cargo of bombs, or something more interesting? Credible homosexuality The Air Force Office...

(happy triskaidekaphobia day) It is with grave disappointment that Blather discovered the writings of one Eamonn Ansbro sullying the pages of *Catalyst* magazine (Autumn '98), an otherwise worthy publication standing for the triple principles of 'ecology', 'empowerment' and 'evolution'. The current issue includes coverage on the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development's *Multilateral Agreement on Investment*, a matter which, in the past, has given this writer cause to put pen to paper. But we digress. Despite apparent yearning for governmental acceptance and scientific credibility, this time Eamonn Ansbro, speaking for the joint venture of the Irish Centre for UFO Studies (ICUFOS) and the Programme for Extraterrestrial Intelligence Research (PEIR) has gone the whole hog by making some remarkable claims... (Blather has mentioned Ansbro and Co. often enough in the past, evidence of which can be gleaned from the archives, so we shall spare the readership from the meticulous agonies of...

A matter of days after the Samhain issue pitter-pattered into the mailboxes of the Blather clientele, one Sam Smyth of the Irish Independent started an article titled Ultimate sacrifice for new boy Simon thus: 'bright-eyed and eager, Simon Coveney was led into the Dail like a virgin being inducted into the Hell-Fire Club'. Coveney is a newly-elected member of the Irish parliament (Dail TD) for Cork South Central. Is it mere coincidence that Mr. Smyth should employ this Hell-Fire comparison, or did Blather's far reaching influence create a snowball (in hell) meme? More Hellfire Club photographs » The Hon. Pat Marren was in touch about last week's issue, with a few quotes concerning the exploits of the 'Bucks': 'Your discussion of the "Hell-Fire Club" and mention of the immortal Buck Whaley jogged the synapses, so I duly betook myself to my all-too capacious library (the mammy is all for heaving...
