The Trib reported on May 6 about University of Utah researchers working to save the endangered birds from blood-sucking fly maggots. From a finch's perspective, what could possibly be more alien than a University of Utah researcher?
The same perspective could hold true for ancient hominids. Space aliens could very well have been the elusive missing link, intervening via genetic engineering to expand our brain size and create the larynx.
We can only hope that their influence is ongoing and that they will help to resolve the conflict over the U. fight song.
