On Coast to Coast Shows tonight, we have Seth Shostak from SETI, discussing, among other things, ". . . the search for ET signals."
Space exploration in general is highly interesting of course, regardless of any ET presence. But when it does come to aliens, people like Shostak on a program like Coast to Coast, well, what is the point? Notice that the blurb states "search for ET signals" not even ET himself, her or themselves. Just "signals." And as always, ignoring the obvious: that ET is here and has been here for a very very long time.
