Reflections on March 2008

March 2008 ends with a bang and not a whimper (J.B.S. Haldane?) at least in terms involving UFO and the paranormal in general. Argentina, basking in the warmth of the southern hemisphere's summer season, has boasted some of the most intriguing UFO photographs taken in recent memory...images that have been praised for their quality by some and derided as mere "BlurFOs" by others. The Argentinean "flap", to use that hallowed word from the early years of ufology, shows no signs of abating, with more cases and photos being added even as the country drifts into a stormy fall season that has been characterized by unprecedented winds and tornado activity. March also brought us the controversial footage of the "goblin", which caused a stir worldwide. UFO activity over Mexico, witnessed by professionals in the aviation field, remains as steady as ever, and new information continues to emerge on the bizarre CE-2 that occured at the beginning of this year. This is probably the first time that I've been moved to write some kind of wrap-up to mark the end of a month on the INEXPLICATA blog, but such constant activity had been unheard of since the days of the Argentinean cattle mutilation wave of 2002. I'd like to offer my sincerest thanks to all the members of the Institute of Hispanic Ufology for their hard wordk and dedication, and our friends and readers around the world for their support and unwavering interest as we "make our way through the dark mountain pass that leads to the following month" -- a shameless paraphrasing of a line by P.J. O'Rourke that I've been dying to use for years!
