May I utter just a few words about Roswell, N.M.? Creepy. Heebie jeebies. Weird vibes. Okay, I'll stop now. I've probably insulted over 45,000 people in one swoop. It's a strange conglomeration of desert, space alien landing folklore/mythology (probably TRUE, too!) strong military presence, surrounded by oil and oil towns--which are not glamorous but also not short on ca$h--and many of the usual stores you see in Anytown, U.S.A.. We drove up and down the main street--several blocks long--and toured the UFO Museum; looks to be running on a shoestring.
