The fallen ones were in the earth in those days, and even afterwards when sons of God come in unto daughters of men, and they have borne to them -- they are the heroes, who, from of old, are the men of name.

Oh, Sarah P. could shoot that old skeet outta the sky like nobody's business...

Was Al Oerter just outside of the frame on the right hand side?

Hah! Al Oerter. Good one.

I guess all it took was rudimentary photographic knowledge in those days to phony up one of these things.

There's something almost bittersweet in the old UFO photos, however. They reflect the most inchoate wishes of a generation, as well as the all-American desire to turn a fast buck (often the two are indistinguishable from one another). They are weirdly charming.
