"ET phone home," Fred my cat said as he came up to me one day.
"What in the world are you talking about now?" I asked Fred, knowing his propensity for coming up with the wildest ideas.
"Haven't you noticed that in the last three months, there were at least three noteworthy news about extra-terrestials?" Fred informed me in a serious tone.
"Check this out, in April there was news that the Jesuits confirmed the existence of ETs. In May, a former senator and presidential candidate not only acknowledged the presence of extra terrestials; he called for full disclosure of information about them. Also in May, an alleged CIA agent on his deathbed talked about his experience with aliens and how the government has been keeping the public in the dark about UFOs," Fred explained.
"It appears that whatever are out there seem to be very concerned with what we're doing here on earth," Fred added with a thoughtful look on his face.
"Hmmmm," I started thinking, "what could all that mean?"
"I have a feeling we need not wait long to find out," Fred said with a little smile.
"What makes you say that?" I took a hard look at Fred.
"Well, give me a phone and I'll let you know." Fred laughed.
