The Kougar’s comment at Bree Younger’s Tuesday Tattoo blog ~ Oh-my-gawd... I must have him for my collection of angel men. I'll bet Volcano, my carnal cherub hero, knows him. He might even be a celestial relative.
After midnight meows, my frisky and freewheeling Felines... strange times, my darlings, strange times... a rather mild summer day on the tame prairie... what an explosion of jungly growth, though... plants around the Kougaress’s mailbox, probably alfalfa, grew several inches overnight... oh, hang onto your tails and your whiskers, Beautiful Big Cats, because the ride only gets bumpier from now on.

1:11 pm... 2:22 pm... 1:11 am... Note: the following may seem as though it is completely far-fetched, as if you’ve now entered sci-fi-landia. However, the official documentation of high level UFO visitation over Washington DC is irrefutable.
From Coast to Coast am ~ Washington UFOs
Host: George Noory
Guests: Robert M. Stanley, Lauren Weinstein
UFO expert and editor of Unicus Magazine, Robert Stanley discussed how the location of Washington DC has been a hotbed for UFO activity over the years. Hundreds of people witnessed the numerous 1952 sightings over the Capitol, and some took photos and movies, which the government attempted to confiscate, he stated. According to his sources, during this time, two US jets went up to intercept one of the UFOs over Capitol Hill, and "were either disintegrated or beamed up and never returned."
The National Mall has had a lot of UFO activity, said Stanley, describing an incident that took place at the Millennial celebration held there on January 1, 2000, in which witnesses reportedly saw cylindrical motherships that released smaller triangular craft. The UFOs were said to suddenly disappear when military helicopters swooped in. Stanley said that he himself has been subject to visitations from unmarked black helicopters hovering over his home, possibly to harass him over his UFO research.
UFOs/ETs have focused on Washington because it's the seat of power, and further, there appears to be an alien base underneath the city, he argued. He arrived at this conclusion because of the frequency of the sightings, witnesses that have described craft that hover low to the ground and disappear, and the huge number of tunnels and bases known to exist underground in the area. Alarmingly, Stanley suggested that these alien or interdimensional visitors may actually be controlling key leaders in the government.
Video Game Ruling
First hour guest, technology & privacy expert Lauren Weinstein commented on the Supreme Court ruling on violent video games. The Court ruled appropriately, protecting video games in a similar fashion to books, movies, and records, from a free speech/civil liberties perspective, he said. "The implication of the ruling is clear that this is a decision to be made by parents whether or not they wish their children to have access to these materials," he added.
