If you’re overly sensitive to Andy Rooney-type musings, please engage your filter now. Otherwise, proceed as follows:
Have you ever noticed that the folks who see Bigfoot, or spaceships, or the Loch Ness Monster, are never the folks with cameras in their cell phones? The Sasquatch never wanders anywhere near the research biologist who’s hiking through the woods with the high-rez digital camera with zoom lens. He always wanders into the rural backyard of the self-proclaimed ‘mountain man’.
Could it possibly be that these seemingly-other-worldly critters, stories of which go back many, many years, have evolved a sensitivity to our own species’ technological goodies, and have learned to avoid them?
Well, I don’t know. It just seems a kinder interpretation than “BoJo’s been hittin’ the ‘shine again.”
