BIOLOGICAL ENTITIES

Perhaps the strangest and most convoluted UFO story of the 1980s concerns
allegations from various sources, some of them individuals connected
with military and intelligence agencies, that the U.S. government not only
has communicated with but has an ongoing relationship with what are
known officially as "extraterrestrial biological entities," or EBEs.

The Emenegger/Sandler Saga: The story begins in 1973, when Robert Emenegger
and Alan Sandler, two well-connected Los Angeles businessmen, were
invited to Norton Air Force Base in California to discuss a possible
documentary film on advanced research projects. Two military officials, one
the base's head of the Air Force Office of Special Investigations, the
other, the audio- visual director Paul Shartle, discussed a number of
projects. One of them involved UFOs. This one sounded the most interesting and
plans were launched to go ahead with a film on the subject.

Emenegger and Sandler were told of a film taken at Holloman AFB, New Mexico,
in May 1971. In October 1988, in a national television broadcast,
Shartle would declare that he had seen the 16mm film showing "three
disc-shaped craft. One of the craft landed and two of them went away." A
door opened on the landed vehicle and three beings emerged. Shartle said,
"They were human- size. They had an odd, gray complexion and a pronounced
nose. They wore tightfitting jump suits, [and] thin headdresses that
appeared to be communication devices, and in their hands they held a
'translator.' A Holloman base commander and other Air Force officers went
out to meet them" (Howe, 1989).

Emenegger was led to believe he would be given the film for use in his
documentary. He was even taken to Norton and shown the landing site and the
building in which the spaceship had been stored and others (Buildings 383
and 1382) in which meetings between Air Force personnel and the aliens had
been conducted over the next several days. According to his sources, the
landing had taken place at 6 a.m. The extraterrestrials were "doctors,
professional types." Their eyes had vertical slits like a cat's and their
mouths were thin and slitlike, with no chins." All that Emenegger was told of
what occurred in the meetings was a single stray "fact": that the military
people said they were monitoring signals from an alien group with which they
were unfamiliar, and did their ET guests know anything about them? The ETs
said no.

Emenegger's military sources said he would be given 3200 feet of film taken
of the landing. At the last minute, however, permission was
withdrawn, although Emenegger and Sandler were encouraged to describe the
Holloman episode as something hypothetical, something that could happen or
might happen in the future. Emenegger went to Wright-Patterson AFB, where
Project Blue Book had been located until its closing in 1969, to ask Col.
George Weinbrenner one of his military contacts, what had happened.
According to Emenegger's account, the exchange took place in Weinbrenner's
office. The colonel stood up, walked to a chalkboard and complained in a
loud voice, "That damn MIG 25! Here we're so public with everything we
have. But the Soviets have all kinds of things we don't know about. We need
to know more about the MIG 25!" Moving to a bookshelf and continuing his
monologue about the Russian jet fighter, he handed Emenegger a copy of J.
Allen Hynek's The UFO Experience (1972), with the author's signature and
dedication to Weinbrenner. "It was like a scene from a Kafka play," Emenegger
would recall , inferring from the colonel's odd behavior that he was confirming
the reality of the film while making sure that no one overhearing
the conversation realized that was what he was doing.

The Suffern Story: On October 7, 1975, a 27-year old carpenter, Robert
Suffern, of Bracebridge, Ontario, got a call from his sister who had seen a
"fiery glow" near his barn and concluded it was on fire. Suffern drove to the
spot and, after determining that there was no problem, got back on the road.
There, he would testify, he encountered a large disc-shaped object resting in
his path. "I was scared," he said. "It was right there in front of me with no
lights and no sign of life." But even before his car could come to a
complete stop, the object abruptly ascended out of sight. Suffern turned his
car around and decided to head home rather than to his sister's place,
his original intended destination. At that point a small figure wearing a
helmet and a silver-gray suit stepped in front of the car, causing Suffern to
hit the brakes and skid to a stop. The figure ran into a field. Then,
according to Suffern, "when he got to the fence, he put his hands on a post
and went over it with no effort at all. It was like he was weightless"
(UFOIL, n.d.).

Within two days Suffern's report was on the wire services, and Suffern
was besieged by UFO investigators, journalists, curiosity-seekers, and
others. Suffern, who made no effort to exploit his story and gave every
appearance of believing what he was saying, soon tired of discussing it. A
year later, however, Suffern and his wife told a Canadian investigator that
a month after the encounter, they were informed that some high-ranking
officials wished to speak with them. Around this time, so they claimed,
they were given thorough examinations by military doctors. After that an
appointment was set up for December 12 and on that day an Ontario Provincial
Police cruiser arrived with three military officers, one Canadian, two
American. They were carrying books and other documents. In the long
conversation that followed, the officers apologized for the UFO landing,
claiming it was a "mistake" caused by the malfunctioning of an
extraterrestrial spaceship.

I read your third paragraph. At our store, we have stickers over the switches people cannot touch (like the computers) saying DO NOT TURN OFF. Perhaps use the label maker machine used for name tags to make that clear to other people.

P.S. Good job dealing with it all that crap.

I read it, KH

Once my 4* did something wrong while she was transfering NR to BSI. All the sudden the screen said "deleting inventory files" or something like that with an evergrowing number, and the POS was frozen at every other computer. There was no cancel button. I panicked and called computer support and they fixed it fine and said no damage was done.

Now every so often I pick on her (my four star csr) and say, "Don't try to delete our store again" and she responds "i hate you". Good times

It's pretty hard to completely erase inventory. There's always a backup copy. I mean, that's how inventory is done ;-P

It compares one inventory to the previous one (and the one before that, and so forth.)
