The NULL Solution = Episode 131

…Mob mentality is one of the strangest instincts in human nature, buried good and deep…

The eminent approach of a huge PHO – potentially hazardous objects {Lie #3} into the solar system makes the other cover-ups look like white lies.

You can hardly hide something the size of the disputed planet Mercury from private telescope operators. It is as plain as an age spot on Galileo’s face that the object is far from purposeless.

A hacker, who has since mysteriously disappeared from the capitol city of Talibanistan, was able to break into the Planetary Defense Coordination Office server. He is able to blab the suppressed {Ÿ€Ð} invasion transmission to the world…

… Even if fibs are for the greater good, when they do come to light, the results cannot be managed. The world has gone deaf to the NASA managers. “Keep Calm and Trust Us”may be true and to be heeded, but the horses are out of the barn, too far down the road to be corralled. Rancher Roy Crippen can only stand back as he witnesses the collapse of world order.

Global money markets tank, doomsday prophets gloat, anarchists flourish and bomb shelters are dug from the North Pole to the South. Both Planetary Defense and those in the know expected just such panic, if & when that alien warning ever became public.

They will not be able to blame Alf Quigby for this one. It does not matter who is to blame, try as some of the mightiest might.

“Chicago and London are in flames, Chinese banks are closed until further notice, the Internet has slowed to a crawl and the airlines just grounded all flights. People think the world is about to end and I can’t tell them anything different!” President Chasin Hedley has been in on the SETI cover-up from the beginning. He is acutely aware that a do-over would produce the same result. “WWOWD?”

A student of all things Science Fiction and pop culture in general, the figurehead of NASA guesses the expressed acronym instantly, “Orson Welles would have made a clear introduction to this story,” Roy concludes, “explaining that it is just a radio drama… NOT a Martian invasion.”

“It’s too late for that.”

“We could have, but people, hear what they want to hear. That message is 3 bleeping years old. Three years ago, Harper Lea Bassett would have been the first person to panic… National Guard, martial law, the whole shebang… the military against the people repeated one country after the next.” A former president is regretful. “Mob mentality is one of the strangest instincts in human nature, buried good and deep. I doubt it was any different during the dinosaur extinction; we were just more spread out on one huge continent. I read a memo: It took approximately 5 minutes for the SETI recording to span the globe… then roughly 90 seconds to worldwide chaos. What can we do here in the U.S.?”

“I have declared martial law and mobilized the National Guard.”

“I have opened up the rifle locker at King Ranch. My hired hands {Secret Service} are instructed to use force to protect the compound. May God, Lorgan or both help us all.”

How cruel the irony.

Alpha Omega M.D. – Episode #294

…I have become a big Constance Caraway fan… and that Ace Bannion, he cracks me up; reminds me of Bob Ford, in a rugged sort of way…

Miami International Airport 36th Street Terminal

Within hours, Lyn Hanes is walking down the corridors of Miami International Airport. Although Coppertoneshe was a Floridian, she had never been this far south. She is amazed how different it is from the Panhandle, both in climate and population. It is very warm and very military, the latter left over from WWII, and it is currently holding Robert Ford in a bunker below ground.

          As it turns out, they were looking for her to show up, not because Ford told them she would be coming, just because they had been digging for dirt on their detainee. “Please come this way, Miss Hanes.”

          She does not resist and ends up in a room by herself. It reminds her of their experience in New Mexico. It should. Old friend, Sgt. Vincent Smith comes in, flanked by new recruits.

Meet again “We meet again, Miss Hanes.”

“So nice to see you Sergeant.”

“You know I had a feeling we would be seeing more of each other. And imagine Image result for good old timesRobert Ford being here too. Just like old times, wouldn’t you say?”

“Good old times?”

“Good, only if you aren’t looking for the truth. In the meantime, I have become a big Constance Caraway fan. And that Ace Bannion, he cracks me up; reminds me of Bob Ford, in a rugged sort of way.” He is slightly sarcastic in his undertones. “Tell me, Miss Hanes, how did you ever dream up that whole space ship thing? That’s pretty far fetched stuff for Constance to get involved in.”

“I was listening to a rebroadcast of “War of the Worlds” on the radio and it gave me this idea for Constance to investigate a spaceship crash.”

“Something inspired you, but I believe it is what you didn’t tell me then and what you aren’t going to tell me now, that gave you the idea. And good old Newt Swakhammer, you know you can’t make up a name like that.”

          “There is no Newt Swakhammer in my book.”

          “Oh, you’re correct, I keep getting the real and the made up, mixed up. Old Newt seems to have a fuzzy recollection of a man and a woman, an airplane and missing government property. Constance Caraway had a strangely similar episode. It’s funny how art imitates life.”
