(Printed in the Bellingham Herald and probably many more Gannett papers.)

    "In an incredible 68 percent of cases where UFO sightings are actually
reported, country music has been playing at either a concert or in a
so-called honky-tonk joint within 14 miles," UFO expert Zachary Simms is
quoted as saying in the March 15 issue of Weekly World News.
    "The music of Hank Williams, Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, and Loretta
Lynn seem to be particularly common to the sightings."
    The study included sightings in the United States, Peru, Australia,
and Africa.
