This post from @SurlyAmy of SkepChick and Surly Ramics fame is just fantastic. For those of you that have wondered how to describe what it is that we do as Skeptics, this should be informative and inspiring.
When I read this I felt that this was something that had to be in many places in its entirety. Amy has allowed it to be reproduced here with permission.
The truth - and the UFOs - may be out there, but nobody in the British military is listening anymore.
I have been following this case for the past couple of days mainly because of a sense of terror at being stuck inside an unresponsive body for 23 years while being fully concious! He is apparently able to type his words on a computer, and is even planning on writing a book. This sounded so amazing that at first I was willing to just accept the mass media reporting.
However, after the initial shock and horror wore off I started following some of the more skeptical blogs out there to see what was really going on.
