I’m Too Wise To Believe My Eyes

Sixty-two years ago today something happened in Roswell.  What, nobody knows for sure, but when you’ve got conspiracy theorists on one side and the military on the other it’s not so easy to believe anybody.

For some reason, Roswell keeps coming up lately.  Just the other day I posted about John Doe, the X frontman who played a dad on the WB teen drama about pretty teenaged aliens.  (I watched that show, pretty much religiously, for all three of its poorly-written seasons, mainly because I had a big crush on Jason Behr’s ears.)  Also, on Sunday I found myself telling someone–again–about the criminally underrated beauty of Sheryl Crow’s second album.  That CD kicks off with the Roswell-mentioning Maybe Angels, and was one of a handful of alien-themed modern rock songs to come out in the wake of the incident’s 50th anniversary and the success of The X-Files.
