News item: It is projected that the USA will have 700,000 to one million fewer home owners when George W. Bush leaves office in January of 2009 than when he took office in 2001. Short Book review: Captured! The Betty and Barney Hill UFO Experience by Stanton T. Friedman and Kathleen Marden This book, published this year (2007) is an extraordinarily in-depth look at the UFO experience of an American couple in 1961. Kathleen Marden is the niece of Betty Hill and trustee of her estate. Stanton Friedman is a well known and intrepid ufologist. I had been more or less aware of the Hill’s story previous to reading this book, but the book leaves no stone unturned and all details are explored. I feel that I really understand this historic milestone in UFO history since reading it. For some readers it will be too detailed. For those who have seen something truly unidentified in the sky, it is a must read. What I am impressed with is the sincerity of the authors and the painstaking documentation of the information relating to the case. Whether you are an experiencer or not, you will come away from this book with the impression that without a doubt the Hills, Friedman, and Marden believe this account of alien abduction and are authentic in this presentation of the information.
