DENVER, CO — Be it known that the wonderful city of Denver does not, and in the foreseeable future does not expect to, harbor any extraterrestrials. Yes, we do have aliens here, but not the 4-foot-tall gray type. ET and his posse have yet to be spotted in Denver.
Nevertheless, one Denver resident, Jeff Peckman, has proposed the formation of an Extraterrestrial Affairs Commission in Denver, just in case. He appeared before city officials earlier this month to explain his proposal and to the credit (or discredit) of the city, he was not laughed out of the building.
Peckman claims to have a never-before-seen video of a Roswell-type alien. The video was shown to media representatives today in Denver, but only one still shot was released. The picture shows Peckman’s “alien” peering in over a windowsill. Reporters were told the video could not be shown publicly because it may become part of an upcoming documentary.
Peckman is sponsoring a petition drive to get his proposal on the November ballot. It’s sad that this sort of initiative can actually make it onto a ballot, but that’s the way things are done here in “Colorful Colorado.” Sadder still is the thought that it might actually get passed into law, and taxpayers’ dollars will have to fund it.
