The Critical 'I'

Read. React. Repeat.

E.T. has made a run for the border:
Mexican Air Force pilots filmed 11 unidentified flying objects in the skies over southern Campeche state, a Defense Department spokesman confirmed Tuesday.

A videotape made widely available to the news media on Tuesday shows the bright objects, some sharp points of light and others like large headlights, moving rapidly in what appears to be a late-evening sky.
Is it for real? Hard to explain it away. But the fact that this is coming from the Mexican Air Force makes for some high-grade comedic fodder:

- Mexico has an air force??

- Mexico, wacky tobaccee, peyote... you get the drift.

- I'm thinking if the aliens want to invade Mexico, they're welcome to it, NAFTA notwithstanding.

- I've gotta believe the fighter pilots were on a Mexican radio. Oh-whoa.
