The TV news show CBS 60-minutes did an interview with the billionaire Robert Bigelow. The interview was primarily about his company Bigelow Aerospace.  But about 6 minutes into the segment the interview takes an interesting turn when the reporter asks him if he believes in aliens. The quote below is his most important response but you can see the full interview at

Robert Bigelow: There has been and is an existing presence, an ET presence. And I spent millions and millions and millions -- I probably spent more as an individual than anybody else in the United States has ever spent on this subject.

We, the members of MUFON-NC, would like to take a moment to remember one of our past leaders. It is often difficult to be a leader in a field that is a true passion for some and ridiculed by many others. Thank you Marie for your past service. You will be greatly missed.
